Do you read latin? If not, how do you translate?

When my mom was doing research, she went to cemetaries, county records, wrote lots of letters to many family members and she and my Dad went to England and Scotland.

Let's just say I'm learning to by using a latin to english dictionary I found on line. I am writing down a list of words that are repeated through out each of the different records(marriage, baptism and death). Each set of records follows the same set up, if I can pick out the names that's most of the battle. It also helps that I have 2 cousins from that side of the family that can take a look at a record if I have questions. One can read a bit of latin and has been learning Polish. There are some cemetery records on line now as well and that helps.

If you are doing family history check out family search! Its great. Its getting so big, and you get on and find other people are doing family history on your own family lines also.

And you can harness the research of people all networking together. You can find out a lot fast with less effort.

Yep, I use both Family Search and Ancestry to look up information, both site have gotten better over the years as far as information. Nice thing with Family Search is it's a free site! Networking with others on family information is good but one has to be careful and double check all the information. I've run across people who just add information and haven't checked to see if it belongs...kind of messing up the tree. You also find people who never reply to emails as well. Even though I have trees on both sites, I use Family Tree Maker program to keep a hard copy. I'm still learning how to use the program as I received it as a early b-day gift :cool:

For anyone who has filled out goat registration paper work or is good at describing a goat's coloring, we have 1 doeling that we are trying to decide how to describe her. She does have a strip down her back but it blends in with her coloring.
@OneFineAcre, Granite is her sire
