        Family History Tips

                           Family Ordinance Request (FOR) Tracking- My husband has
                           been serving as a New.FamilySearch support missionary, and so
                           we have been able to submit Family Ordinance Requests and
                           have family file cards printed through the new systerm for the
                           past year. Now that Logan is getting close to the roll out, I have
      a suggestion for how to handle the family file cards. The problem is that family file
      cards printed through New.FamilySearch do not have a submission number. The
      Family Ordinance Request (FOR) has a date on it, but the individual cards have
      nothing to indicate that a particular card is on a particular FOR. After struggling with
      trying to record ordinances done, we bought a little date stamper, just a little cheap
      one that the date can be changed on. We now stamp each family file card on the
      back with the date of the FOR. (Stamp on the back behind MALE or FEMALE or
      COUPLE and the date doesn't show through to the front of the card) The date stamp
      has been very helpful to us in recording when the ordinances are done and the FOR is

        Questions/Answers

                       Question: In the Western Marriage Index web site,why are there so
                       many marriages not listed?
                       Answer: From the website: At this time, the index is not
                       comprehensive for the time period and/or localities described.
                       However, the goal for this index is to have marriages from all 12
      western states at the fingertips of family researchers. In the meantime, the index
      represents an effort to share results even though the index is incomplete. Click here
      for a list of counties by state where records have been extracted.

      Question: Does LFHC have access to 1800's birth & death certificates in Utah? I
      know that I read to check with local FHC.
      Answer: Registration for Utah birth and death began in 1905. Most counties began
      keeping ledger entries in 1898. In 1860, the Utah legislature empowered (but did not
      require) Salt Lake City and Ogden to maintain a register of births and deaths. All
      surviving early county birth and death registers have been microfilmed and are
      accessible through the Family History Library and the State Archives. The Utah State
      Archives has a continuing program of indexing the birth registers. Those counties that
      have been completed are available online at www.archives.utah.gov For more details
      about what Utah birth and death records are available and where, read this article in
      FamilySearch Wiki.

      Question: Is there a place I can go to find information on old cemeteries around the
      Ogden area that are not listed on the web now? Before cemeteries started keeping
      records and in case the main cemetery was a ways away from their home, were
      people buried on family homesteads? If the family wasn't active LDS at the time
      would the Ward have records on the death, or did they mention deaths in the records
      of the Ward? I am looking for a 10 year old girl, daughter of a pioneer. I am bothered
      that I cannot find her grave. Is it important that I do or should I just give up?
      Answer: Perhaps you could try Cemetery Records of Utah, 13 Volumes. Salt Lake
      City, Utah: Genealogical Society of Utah, 1953. (On 9 Family History Library films
      beginning with 874340.) The records are listed by cemetery and cogrouped together
      by county. The counties are not arranged alphabetically or geographically. There is a
      separate index for each volume. The cemetery listings will give you the name of the
      deceased, location of the grave, birth date, and the parent or spouse. This has been
      indexed in the Early Church Information File.

      Question: I have just reviewed the last newsletter I received from you and noticed
      that I missed 2 classes. I recall that these courses may also be taken online - may I
      still apply for these courses, and how?
      Answer: None of our classes are offered online.

      Question: Some of my ancestors never married but had children. I can seal the
      children to the fathers but can I seal the spouses?
      Answer: Yes. A deceased couple who lived together as husband and wife may be
      sealed, even if the marriage cannot be documented. (source: nFS Help Center)

      Question: In PAF, how do I create a list of completed ordinances?
      Answer: Select Search > Advanced Focus Filter. Click the Define button. In the left
      box, double- click LDS Baptism date, exists, OK. Click the OR button. In the left box,
      double-click LDS Endowment date, exists, OK. Click the OR button. In the left box,

      want only those with all ordinances completed, click the AND (instead of OR) button.)

      Question: In PAF, how do I extract and move these names with completed
      ordinances into NFS?
      Answer: You don't. If they have been completed, the individuals and ordinances are
      already in NFS.

        Remember...

                         If we have the courage and tenacity of our forebears, who stood firmly
                         like a rock against the lash of slavery, we shall find a way to do for our
                         day what they did for theirs. ---Mary McLeod Bethune

                     We, today, stand on the shoulders of our predecessors who have gone
                     before us. We, as their successors, must catch the torch of freedom
      and liberty passed on to us by our ancestors. We cannot lose in this battle. ---
