Part 375j – Smith Robertson Genealogy – 1799 Marie Jully – Birth Transcription Update

30 September 2010

Morning,

It is always a surprise and a pleasant one at that, when I receive an email out-of-the blue with an offering of assistance to my genealogy research and effort. This is what makes this pursuit of the re-construction of the family tree so, so unique. The search for one’s ancestry and genealogy is just something that possibly ties individuals and complete strangers together.

Following up on my recent work in Part 373j regarding the Birth Registration of ggg-grandaunt Marie Jully, I received a tremendous work of transcription and translation of the same document from P.L.

(The above inserted image is Boris Mikhailovich Kustodiev's The Merchant Wife.)

Thank you P.L., and the 11th of Fructidor still stands. As I stated previously, the conversion could possibly mean that ggg-grandaunt Marie was born at six am on the 28th of August 1799. Oh and by the way, the post-Revolutionary name for that date was Pastèque or Watermelon. (Yup, watermelon! There was a name for each of every of the 366 days of the French Revolutionary Calendar.)

Here is the updated transcription –

Bonjour,

Il est toujours une surprise, et un très agréable, quand j'ai reçu un e-mail, avec l'offre de l'aide à mes recherches généalogiques et d'efforts. C'est ce qui rend la poursuite de la re-construction de l'arbre de la famille, si unique. La recherche de l'ascendance et la généalogie de l'un, c'est juste quelque chose qui se lie peut-être des individus, et de parfaits inconnus, ensemble.

Faisant suite à mes travaux récents en 373j Partie, en ce qui concerne l'enregistrement de naissance de mon arrière-arrière-arrière-grand'tante Marie Jully, j'ai reçu un énorme travail, de la transcription et la traduction du même document à partir de PL.

(L'image ci-dessus inséré, le marchand épouse de Boris Mikhaïlovitch Koustodiev.)

Merci PL, et le 11 fructidor est toujours correcte. Comme je l'ai indiqué précédemment, la conversion pourrait vouloir dire que les arrière-arrière-arrière-grand-tante Marie est née à six heures sur le 28 août 1799. Oh, et en passant, le nom de la date de l'après-Révolution a été Pastèque. (Eh oui, la pastèque! Il y avait un nom pour chacun des 366 jours du Calendrier révolutionnaire français.)

Voici la transcription mise à jour -

Good afternoon again,

I have updated my July Family Descendant Chart. I have added in the preliminary information for ggg-grandaunt Marie Jully (aka July). See Part 373j for my discussion of her Birth Registration.


This Chart is created in GenoPro.

Part 373j – Smith Robertson Genealogy – 1799 Marie Jully – Birth Registration

Good Afternoon,

And this morning after my skate – 10.5 miles, 16.9 kms., and the planting of my fall garden – tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, beans, peas, squash, and parsley, I decide to attack the 1799 Acte de Naissance, the Birth Registration of ggg-grandaunt Marie Jully. Please note that I have used the surname Jully and not July. Jully is the spelling of the surname as it appears on this Birth Registration. Her parents are recorded as Pierre Jully and Jeanne Colomière.

From the Civil Registration and the FHL Collection - Registres de l'état civil, Bordeaux (Gironde). Officier de l'état civil (Main Author), 1793-1888; Naissances (C) 1798 jan-sept (actes no. 310-fin) -- Naissances (N) 1798 sept- 1799 sept -- Naissances (S) 1798 sept- 1799 sept (actes no. 1-1592), I downloaded the image of the Acte de Naissance from the microfilm FHL [1647079]

Inserted above is the Index which includes the name of ggg-grandaunt Marie Jully.

Apart from the transcription and translation, this time there is also the date conversion of the date from the French Republican date. From what I can make out, the registration date appears to read “Le Onze Fructidor de L’an Sept de La Republique Franc”. This translates, I think, to 28 August 1799. (I used the French Republican Calendar on Wikepedia as my reference.)

I cannot make out the actual date of birth, and I may be a bit confused as to grasping the actual day.. I can make out the first part of the Acte de Naissance, Birth Registration to read “Est née Le huit du courant a Six heures du matin…” Translating, that is “Born the eighth of the current day at six o’clock in the morning…” Any other eyes would certainly be implored.

Here are the images of the two pages –

I would certainly invite any assistance with this transcription.

Bon après-midi,

Et ce matin, après mon patin à roues alignées - 10,5 miles, 16,9 km, et la plantation de mon jardin d'automne -. Tomates, aubergines, poivrons, haricots, pois, squash, et le persil, je décide d'attaquer les 1799 Acte de Naissance de mon arrière-arrière-arrière-grand'tante Marie Jully. S'il vous plaît noter que j'ai utilisé le nom de famille Jully et non July. Jully est l'orthographe du nom de famille tel qu'il apparaît sur l'acte de naissance. Ses parents sont enregistrés comme Pierre Jully et Jeanne Colomière.

De l'état civil et de la collection de la FHL - Registres de l'état civil, Bordeaux (Gironde). Officier de l'état civil (Principal Auteur), 1793-1888; Naissances (C) 1798 janvier-septembre (actes n ° 310-fin.) - Naissances (N) 1798 septembre-1799 septembre - Naissances (S) 1798 septembre - 1799 septembre (. Actes pas 1-1592), j'ai téléchargé l'image de l'acte de naissance à partir du microfilm FHL [1647079].

Voici l'indice qui inclut le nom du grand-arrière-arrière-grand'tante Marie Jully.

En dehors de la transcription et de traduction, cette fois, il ya aussi la conversion de la date à partir de la date républicain français. D'après ce que je peux faire sortir, la date d'enregistrement apparaît comme suit: «Le Onze Fructidor de l'An septembre de La Republique Franc». Cela se traduit, je crois, pour le 28 août 1799. (J'ai utilisé le calendrier républicain français sur Wikepedia que ma référence.)

Je ne peux pas faire à la date effective de la naissance, j'ai peut-être un peu confus quant à saisir le jour même. Je peux faire la première partie de l'acte de naissance à lire, «Est née Le Huit du courant a Six heures du matin ... » Des yeux d'autres, serait certainement imploré.

Voici les images des deux pages –

Part 372s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1814 Archibald Smith Plus – A Parcel of Land, Cont’d

28 September 2010

Evening,

As a follow up to Part 368s this next transcription is another Document in the search and research for the origins of my ggg-grandfather James Smith. A quick count of the occurrence of the surname Smith, as written in this Indenture from the Grenada Registers of Records, totals 67. And not one is a definitive connection to ggg-grandfather James.

(The images of 1809 and 1814 London Buildings from Blog of An Art Admirer and History Lover.)

This Record is marked “B” and is a second part to the one in my Posting in Part 368s.

Part 371j – Smith Robertson Genealogy – July Family Descendant Chart Update

26 September 2010

Evening,

With all the work that I have been doing on the July Family Tree, I thought I had better update my July Descendant Chart.


The yellow and blue symbols represent my direct blood line. All information presented on this Descendant Chart is based on current and available information. It is and will always be a work in progress. It may change as new and more correct data is discovered.

The added letters and numbers that are inserted near a name on the Descendant Chart, for example, B-P369j, are guides. They can be used to locate a posting, discussion and/or an image of an identified document as it may appear in A Genealogy Hunt. The key is as follows:
  • B = Birth
  • C = Christening / Baptism
  • M = Marriage
  • D = Death or Burial
  • O = Other Information, which may be included in any of the above four.
Please feel to use this information but please be considerate and quote the source(s) when you do.

The Descendant Chart was created with the GenoPro software.

Thank you to Yann, Zoë, Toni, David, Peter, Annie, Phyllis, David, Jo, and Paula and Lynn, for your assistance. Also thank you to all who have read my work and provided suggestions and ideas.
Enjoy,

Jim

Bonne soirée,

Avec tout le travail que j'ai fait sur l'arbre de la famille de July, j'ai pensé que je ferais mieux de mettre à jour mon graphique des descendants de Pierre July.

Les symboles jaune et bleu représentent le sang de ma ligne directe. Toutes les informations présentées sur ce graphique Descendant est basé sur des informations actuelles et disponibles. Il est, et sera toujours, un travail en cours. Il peut changer à mesure que de nouvelles données et la plus correcte est découvert.

Les lettres ajoutées et des chiffres, qui sont insérées à proximité d'un nom sur le tableau des descendants, par exemple, B-P369j, sont des guides. Ils peuvent être utilisés pour localiser une annonce, la discussion et / ou une image d'un document précis, car il peut apparaître dans le Blog A Genealogy Hunt. La clé est la suivante:
  • B = naissance
  • C = baptême
  • M = mariage
  • D = décès ou de sépulture
  • O = autre information, qui peut être inclus dans l'un des quatre ci-dessus.
S'il vous plaît n'hésitez à utiliser cette information, mais s'il vous plaît faire preuve de considération et de citer la source(s) lorsque vous effectuez.

Le graphique Descendant a été créé avec le programme informatique, GenoPro.

Merci à Yann, Zoë, Toni, David, Peter, Annie, Phyllis, David, Jo, et Paula et Lynn, pour votre aide. Merci également à tous ceux qui ont lu mon travail et formulé des suggestions et des idées.

Bon Chance,

Part 370j – Smith Robertson Genealogy – 1792 Michel July / Julie - Death

Afternoon,

In the short year accounting, 1791 and 1792 of the Parish Records for Saint-Louis de Chartrons I was delighted to discover the Baptism Registration of ggg-granduncle Michel July. This is the pay-off of the research and effort of delving into one’s genealogy and ancestry. I’m not actually building my family tree, I am just filling in the branches and the twigs.

(The inserted image of a painting by Jacques Ruiz title "Bordeaux quai des chartrons St. Louis".)

I didn’t expect my next discovery. It is the registration of the death and, what I believe the burial of the same, ggg-granduncle Michel July. He would have died at the age of 10 months, 6 July 1792.

Please note that in the actual entry the surname is spelled Julie. It is also spelled that way, that is, Julie, in the Index of the “Régître des Sépultures de la Paruisse Saint Louis de Bordeaux”; Register of Burials of the Parish of Saint Louis of Bordeaux. (From the Item 7 of the microfilm FHL [1692407])

Here is page of the Index of the Register –


My transcription, and translation –

Julie .. Michel .. 20

And here is the Burial Registration from the Parish Register.


Here is my transcription. The entry script is somewhat hard to make out and I have attempted to construct a reasonable in accordance with the other entries on the same Register page.

And now the goal is to determine and locate the previous church that the family attended prior to 1791.

Bon après-midi,

Dans l'année abrégée, 1791 et 1792 de la paroisse Records de Saint-Louis des Chartrons de, j'ai été ravi de découvrir, l'enregistrement du baptême, de mon arrière-arrière-arrière-grand-oncle Michel July. C'est le pay-off de l'effort de recherche et, de plonger dans sa généalogie et l'ascendance. Je ne suis pas en train de construire mon arbre généalogique, je suis juste de remplissage dans les branches et les rameaux.

Je ne m'attendais pas ma prochaine découverte. Il est l'enregistrement de la mort, et ce que je crois, l'enterrement de la même, du arrière-arrière-arrière-grand-oncle Michel July. Il serait mort à l'âge d'environ 10 mois, 6 Juillet 1792.

S'il vous plaît noter que, dans l'entrée effective le nom est orthographié Julie. Il est également orthographié de cette façon, c'est-à-Julie, dans l'indice de la "Régître des Sépultures de la Paruisse Saint Louis de Bordeaux". (De l'article 7 de la FHL microfilms [1692407])

Voici la page de l'indice du registre -

Mon transcription et la traduction -

Julie .. Michel .. 20

Et voici l'enregistrement de la sépulture du registre de la paroisse.

Voici ma transcription. Le script de démarrage est un peu difficile à lire et à comprendre. J'ai essayé de construire une tentative qui est raisonnable, en conformité avec les autres entrées sur la même page du registre.

Part 369j – Smith Robertson Genealogy – 1791 Michel July - Baptism

25 September 2010

Good Afternoon, Morning, and Evening,

And you never know what you may find, when you take a chance. This morning I received two new microfilms, FHL [1692407] and FHL [1692408] which are a part of my search and research of my July family line and ancestry in Bordeaux, France.

Up to this point I have arrived at that time of my research that I am now staring straight into the period of the French Revolution. My research from about 1793 forward is of documents of Civil Registration. And I am thinking about how I can jump backwards in time and find those documents and or registrations which will assist me in my search for my July genealogy.

A logical starting point would be Parish Records, if they exist. My guess for the July Family is the Roman Catholic Church. As I had narrowed the area, from my earlier work of identifying family residences in the Marché des Chartrons area in Bordeaux, I thought that I may have a chance of gathering documentation from the nearest and local church. As the time frame is pre-1793, obviously I would think that a church within walking distance may be a good choice, a possible chance.

The closest church is Saint-Louis de Chartrons. From the website Beautiful Churches, I discovered the following:

“In 1726 a new church replaced the old chapel. It was dedicated to Our Lady of the Visitation. This is the site of the present church today on Notre-Dame street.

In 1791 by decree of the Constituency Assembly the Carmelites were expelled and the parish of St Louis in Chartrons was created, soon to be closed...and reopened after the Revolution.

In 1875, it was decided to demolish the church and to rebuild a bigger one, which was given over to worship in 1880.”

From the Registres paroissiaux, (Parish Registers), 1791-1792 of the Eglise catholique, (Catholic Church), Saint-Louis (Bourdeaux, Gironde), I found a Baptism Registration for great-great-great-granduncle Michel July, dated, I believe 2 October 1791. His parents are gggg-grandparents Pierre and Jeanne (née Colomière) July.

Here is the Index from downloaded from Item 1 of the microfilm FHL [1692408].


And my transcription –
July.. Michel… 23

I then located the actual Baptism entry in Item 5 of the microfilm FHL [1692407].


My transcription -

I now need to update the Pierre July Descendant Chart.

Bonjour, bonjour et bonsoir,

Et on ne sait jamais, ce que tu pues trouver, quand tu prends une chance. Ce matin, j'ai reçu deux nouvelles microfilms, FHL [1692407] et FHL [1692408], qui sont une partie de ma recherche et de la recherche, de ma lignée familiale et l'ascendance de July, à Bordeaux, France.

Jusqu'à ce point, je suis arrivé à ce en temps de mes recherches, que je suis maintenant regarder, dans la période de la Révolution française. Mes travaux de recherche d'environ 1793 avant, c'est de documents d'état civil. Et je pense à comment je peux sauter en arrière au cours des années, et de trouver les documents et / ou inscriptions, ce qui va m'aider dans ma recherche de ma généalogie de ma famille de July.

Un point de départ logique, serait Registres paroissiaux, si elles existent. Je pense à la famille de July est l'Eglise catholique romaine. Comme je l'ai réduit la zone, de mes travaux antérieurs de l'identification des résidences de la famille, dans la région de Marché des Chartrons à Bordeaux, j'ai pensé que je pourrais avoir une chance de documentation de collecte, de l'église la plus proche et local. Comme le délai est pré-1793, évidemment, je pense que d'une église à distance de marche peut être un bon choix, une chance possible.

Le plus proche est l'église Saint-Louis de Chartrons. Sur le site de belles églises, j'ai découvert le texte suivant:

"En 1726, une nouvelle église a remplacé l'ancienne chapelle.Elle fut dédiée à Notre-Dame de la Visitation. Ceci est le site de l'église d'aujourd'hui sur la rue Notre-Dame actuelle.

En 1791, par décret de l'Assemblée constituante les Carmes ont été expulsés et la paroisse de St Louis dans Chartrons a été créé, qui sera bientôt fermé … et rouvert après la Révolution.

En 1875, il a été décidé de démolir l'église et de reconstruire un plus gros, qui a été donnée au culte en 1880. "

Du Paroissiaux Registres, 1791-1792 de l'Eglise catholique, Saint-Louis (Bordeaux, Gironde), j'ai trouvé une inscription baptême de mon arrière-arrière-arrière-grand-oncle Michel July, date, je crois 2 Octobre 1791. Ses parents sont mes arrière-arrière-arrière-arrière-grand-parents Pierre et Jeanne (née Colomière) July.

Voici l'indice de télécharger à partir du poste 1 de la FHL microfilms [1692408].

Et ma transcription -

July .. Michel ... 23

Je trouve alors l'entrée réelle dans le Baptême Point 5 de l'microfilm FHL [1692407].

Part 368s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1814 Archibald Smith Plus – A Parcel of Land

24 September 2010

Early Morning,

My next transcription in my search and research for the origin and genealogy of my ggg-grandfather James Smith is a two-part Document from the Grenada Registers of Records. It is dated the 18th of May in the 54th year of the reign of King George III. I think that translates to 18 May 1814. I believe King George III ascended to the British throne 26 October 1760. The Record was entered to the Registers 20 June 1814 and is labeled “A”.

The image of King George III is a wax portrait sculpted by Donna Weaver of Kentucky.

All-things-being equal there does not appear to be any reference to ggg-grandfather James Smith. The Smiths included in this Document are Archibald, John, James the Elder and James the Younger. These Smith, I believe are of the family I have termed “Smiths of Jordan Hill”. You can possibly identify three of them; Archibald, James the Elder, and James the Younger at my Descendant Chart “Smiths of Jordanhill, Scotland”. The person John Smith may be a new unique name in my research of the association.

I have not closed the door to the possibility that ggg-grandfather James may be in same way connected to this Smith family. There are a number of avenues and now this new John Smith another. Give or take, the two of the three sons listed, of James/John Smith, James Smith, Junior and William Smith may be possible lines that may be of concern to the origin of ggg-grandfather James.

A possible and logical matching of the Smiths of this Document to the Smiths of Jordanhill may be as follows:

  1. James/John Smith of the Chart could be John Smith, of the Indenture,
  2. James Smith, Junior of the Chart could be James Smith the Elder, of the Indenture,
  3. Archibald Smith; 1749-1821 of the Chart could be Archibald Smith, of the Indenture, and
  4. James Smith, 1782-1862 of the Chart could be James Smith the Younger, of the Indenture.

Here are the images of the two Pages 156 and 157 as downloaded from Item 3 of the microfilm FHL [1563379].

My Tangent – Speech Recognition and My Genealogy Transcription Project

23 September 2010

Morning,

I have been asked a number of questions regarding my transcription work in my search for the genealogy and ancestry of my family, and especially about my Transcription Project in the search for the origin and birth location of my ggg-grandfather James Smith.

Going forward and every so often, in My Tangent I will jot down few notes as to how, and what, and what does not work for me. Today I will touch on Speech Recognition and my genealogy Transcription Project. And no, this does not have anything to do with communicating with those family members who have passed on.

I just discovered that Windows 7 has a hands-free dictation function. It’s called Speech Recognition. That is, I talk into a microphone and the computer transcribes my words directly into the compatible software, usually a word processing software that I’m working with. But for me it’s like learning another new language… especially since I’ve been using Dragon Naturally Speaking for many years. Dragon Naturally Speaking is a speech recognition software.

Now I have two choices. But learning the two different applications is sort like speaking Italian and Portuguese and Spanish at the same time. It does get a bit confusing, since a number of the commands are different between the two programs.

In the process of my genealogy research here’s how I use the Dictation software. My setup is to have two monitors which allow me to open multiple programs and have them up and running simultaneously. I open and position a document, a record, or an indenture on one of my monitors, usually the right monitor. I then open my word processing software on the second monitor, that is, my left monitor. (Right or left is just my preference.) I lastly open my dictation software, position my microphone, and then get to work.

Making sure that my dictation software is turned on and that my cursor is resident in my word processing software, in my case MS Word. I read the document, record, or indenture word by word using the microphone. The dictation software takes over and begins to type and key my words directly into the word processing software. It is amazing. It is great especially since I speak much faster than I can type.

This tool combination is certainly a must for anyone doing genealogical transcription of old documents. The configuration of your monitors or the position of the software on your screen is certainly your choice. One further note, I have my two monitors programmed as a continuous screen. That is, I only have to use one mouse and I have the ability of moving my mouse cursor immediately between both monitors. Another word of advice, unless you have super magnification vision ability this process may not work too well on the little bitty monitors of a cell phone or small tablet.

Enjoy,

Jim.

Part 367s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1813 Hester Smith Plus– An Agreement

21 September 2010

Evening,

This search for the origins, ancestry, and genealogy of my ggg-grandfather James Smith is certainly causing me to further sharpen and enhance my technological skills. I thought I was getting to that point in my life where I would be able to start coasting... Hah! Something has bombarded my MS Word 2010. I haven't got a clue, it just keeps crashing. And of course, I have my backup plan, download my Word document into Google Documents, and ta-da, I continue.

My next Indenture in my Transcription Project is An Agreement dated 7 November 1812 and entered 24 January 1814 concerning a number of Smiths. The Smiths included are: Hester (née Dance) Smith, George Smith, Ann Smith, Elizabeth Smith and Frances Diana Smith. A key referenced person is one, Nathaniel Smith, deceased. Hester, I believe, is the widow of Nathaniel Smith.

From what I've discovered Nathaniel and Hester (née Dance) Smith were the parents of Nathaniel, Caroline, George, Hester, Ann, Elizabeth, and Frances Diana. In 1813 the surviving children were possibly Caroline, George, Ann, Elizabeth, and Frances Diana. There is no info regarding the ultimate passing of Caroline, and the four surviving siblings are all mentioned in the following Agreement, along with their surviving mother, Hester (née Dance) Smith.

The inserted portrait of Hester (née Dance) Smith was completed in 1769 by her brother, Sir Nathaniel Dance-Holland.

At present I'm not sure that there is any familial connection or relationship between ggg-grandfather James and the Smiths of this Record. It does not appear to be promising but I am not shutting this door behind me.

Here are the Pages of the Agreement, 478 through and including 483. They are downloaded from the Grenada Registers of Records and Item 2 of the microfilm FHL [1563379].
