Comments on Issue 2--the Insanity Issue

Teri writes (in part):
Thank you so much for the information you addressed in this issue!

My 2nd Great-Grandfather passed while at the Peoria County Poor Farm (despite having numerous family members nearby, many of which were rather prosperous). We know that he was buried at the Poor Farm as well. Plus we have the transcription of the newspaper notice noting that his remains would be moved in the 1980's due to Interstate 74 going through a portion of that cemetery, but that is all the information we have. The questions have always been "Why?" and "How?" You have definitely given me a direction to go to try to obtain more information on his time there to try to answer those questions!

Keep up the great work! Every issue has one thing (if not more) that makes me say "Ah Ha!"

I'm glad to help with some "Aha" moments!

And we're looking at working on getting more on Ira's hospitalization records. There's a family skeleton involving his first wife which we've never really addressed in Casefile Clues and I'm hoping there might be something (even a small clue) in the records about her.

Stay Tuned!

Reviewing an Insanity

I'm reviewing my transcription of a document for the next issue of Casefile Clues.
I've posted part of Ira Sargent's apparent second insanity case here.
There are apparently three words that I just can't quite make out. They have been underlined in red. Unless I get them figured out fairly quickly they are going to have to be left blank in issue 2 as the rest of it is written and it needs to be sent out.
I'm hoping that those three words are not really crucial to the analysis.
Any thoughts on what they are? [note: this is not one of those cases where I really know the answer--I don't].
Subscribe to Casefile Clues today and see the rest of Ira's insanity file and where I'm hoping to progress from there.

What's In Issue 1 Volume 2

Issue 1 of Volume 2 contains some of the problem-solving techniques that I use on my research trips to Salt Lake and Ft. Wayne. And there's some discussion of the problem-solving process in there as well. Interesting stuff and one of my favorite topcs, although we usually don't present it as stand-alone material.

Subscribe now and I'll start you off with issue 1 of volume 2.

Insane in the Census (Ira Sargent)

This is part of Ira Sargent's 1910 census enumeration while he was institutionalized near Peoria, Illinois.

Casefile Clues V2N1 discusses some of Ira's committment information and how it impacted research on him and his family.

Volume 2 Issue 1

Issue 1 from Volume 2 just went out. We're still playing catchup and appreciate everyone's patience.

If you did not get it, please let me know. A few of you requested new email addresses. I'm not certain those changes were processed for the issue 2. Please send me those and I'll get to them for the next issue.

Those who want or need to renew, can do so from the link in your email with the newsletter. I'm not sending out notices until the newsletter is caught up.

Ira Sargent's Insanity Case

Issue 2 will discuss one of Ira Sargent's insanity cases in 1907 in Adams County, Illinois. A search of digital newspapers turned up this result in 1905 which is alluded to in the 1907 case that was located.
We'll discuss the 1907 case, see how it helps circumstantially tia Ira to his daughters (there is no probate for him) and firms up the two names that he used.
I've finally got directions for how to get Ira's mental health records as well and that's also on the agenda. The records discussed in issue 2 are all openly public records.

What's Odd With this 1860 Census Enumeration

This 1860 Census enumeration for Wesley Jones and his household from Macon County, Missouri, is a little bit unusual.
I think I have it figured out and in volume 2, issue 5 or 6, we are taking a closer look at this enumeration. Any explanation of an unusual enumeration of this type has to have reasons grounded in something other than "I think." I'll make my case for what I think happened in issue 3 and outline additional research suggestions.

No Disclosure on Casefile Clues

We don't have a disclosure about advertisers or vendors and our relationship with them at Casefile Clues because there are no relationships. The only thing the Casefile Clues website is selling is subscriptions to the newsletter (grin!).

The newsletter and the website associated with it have no advertisements. I made that decision when I began the newsletter. I also do not accept material for review. There are several reasons.

In the beginning Casefile Clues was too small to really generate any revenue from advertising. To be perfectly frank, we're probably still too small. Other sites may care about their website rankings, how much traffic they get, and how many ad sales they have. I don't. Several years ago I gave up trying to make money on affiliate marketing via genealogy (although my other sites do have advertisements I maintain the sites for fun and I don't spend any time trying to "target" my ads and change them rarely). When I started Casefile Clues I decided to just do whatever I wanted with the newsletter. And now, I simply do not want to "fuss" with advertising--either in the newsletter or on the website. It simply takes too much time.

Any mention of a book, website, database, etc. will only be done because it was used in the course of actual research. Material used for Casefile Clues comes from actual research--I don't just pull neat examples from records to use as illustrations. I'd rather research real families that I know and are related to my children. Even with that limitation, there is still a lot of ground to cover.

I don't want to appear to be pleasing any advertisers or vendors, and frankly I don't review materials because to be perfectly honest, sometimes I can be just a little too blunt. Personally I think real research and real research suggestions helps readers more than material copied and pasted or paraphrased from a press release. The content you see on this website and the newsletter did not originate in some PR office in some company's corporate headquarters. It comes straight from my keyboard, warts and all (the blog is not proofread--so I'm completely responsible for all typos and other errors).

No disclosure is needed, other than occasionally my opinions will come shining through!

Thanks again and don't forget to let your friends know about Casefile Clues.


We're catching up here at Casefile Clues after my summer speaking and travelling. Volume 2 issue 1 is being proofread and issues 2 and 3 are being finalized. Information on emailing of the newsletter will be posted to the blog--so check in here if you think you've missed an issue. We'll be following up on Ira Sargent's insanity and progress on Benjamin Butler in Michigan.

Anyone who needs to renew their subscription to Casefile Clues can do so securely here. Actual renewal notices will be sent out after I get the newsletter caught up.

Daughter Refuses Letter About Ira Sargent

This is a copy of the envelope that contained a letter to Mrs. Ella Shipe regarding her father, William Ira Sargent, in 1911. This is the same William Ira Sargent we've heard about in Casefile Clues before.
Shipe refused the letter and William Ira's second wife couldn't be found by her local post office.

Volume 2--Number 1

Our first issue of the new volume is a general methodological piece, not geared towards anyone location or time period. Subscribe before it goes out and I'll make certain you get that issue.

I've wrapped up my group trip to Fort Wayne and have organized what I found--some interesting things for future columns. It looks like I have a witch accuser in my family tree (or at least an great-great-great....aunt!).

I'm working on catching up, so the only emails I'll be replying to in the near future are ones about missed issues and subscriptions. Other types of questions will have to wait. Thanks.

Allen County Public Library Research Trip 3-7 August 2011

We are headed to the Allen County Public Library in Ft. Wayne in August 2011! Our trip dates are arrive on 3 August (check in to hotel, meet at 6:30 in hotel, and receive library orientation at 7:00). Trip participants will check out of hotel the morning of 7 August 2011-Sunday.

A more detailed brochure will be posted later--this gives you the basic information about our trip.

We have a group rate at the Ft. Wayne Hilton, you can have up to four guests per room ($99). You will need to request the Rootdig.com rate--which we will link to when the website has been set up. The Ft. Wayne Hilton is conveniently located to the library and is where we will have morning meetings from 8:00 a.m. until 8:45 a.m.--the library opens at 9:00 a.m. You can call the hotel to make reservations and we'll have a direct link to our group rate as soon as I can get it up. You do NOT have to stay at the Hilton and can stay at other hotels/motels in the area--that is up to you. The Hilton is convenient if you want to walk back during the time we are in the library.

What we'll do:

  • Michael will make morning presentations Thursday-Saturday.
  • Michael is in library from open to close--except for lunch/dinner
  • Every attendee gets at least one 30 minute consultation with Michael and more as time allows
  • Michael is available for "drop-in" consultations when he's in library and not with another person
  • Trip participants can email Michael questions, etc. before the trip and we'll encourage everyone to get ready as much as possible before the trip actually starts
  • A private trip website where members can post questions about the trip, their research, etc. We'll also post files there to help attendees with their research and with preparation for the trip.
  • Assistance with pre-trip planning (through the website listed above and through email).
  • Trip participants are encouraged to send problems to Michael BEFORE the trip actually starts.
Our trip would start at 7:00 p.m. with an orientation on Wednesday night. Early arrivals could easily go to the library before that or meet with me if I'm able to arrive early. We would have all day Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in the library with a Sunday morning hotel checkout. Participants who were fairly close could check out of the hotel on Saturday if they desired. There would be a Dutch-treal meal Friday night after the library closes.
$125 is the complete registration fee (payment can be made here via PayPal). Those who would like to pay by check can do so by sending me an email to make arrangements. A registration packet will be emailed to those who register. Any questions about the trip can be emailed to me at mjnrootdig@gmail.com.
Trip participants are responsible for:
  • making their own travel arrangements to Ft. Wayne
  • paying for their own meals, etc.
  • making their own hotel arrangements and paying for hotel accomodations
  • paying for their own copies
More later as a few details are ironed out, but this is the essence of it. Registration will be limited to 20.

Benjamin Butler in 1850--maybe

Regular readers have heard of Benjamin Butler before. An earlier issue of Casefile Clues discussed an 1870 and 1880 census enumeration that appear to be for the same individual.

I think I've found an enumeration for a Benjamin Butler in 1850 that could be the same person. The census enumeration clearly shows a last name of Butler, but it was indexed as "Butter."

The person of interest is living in St. Clair County, in Port Huron, with other Butlers on the same census page.

Part of the problem with connecting this entry to the Benjamin I have is that I don't have an 1860 census enumeration and a person with children in 1850 likely has an entirely different set of children twenty years later. That's one of the issues we'll discuss when we get to that point. There are a few other records I'm waiting on first before I get too deep in the records before 1870.

Subscribe now and get in on the research fun.

Reading of Facebook Posts

I am appreciative of the fans Casefile Clues has on Facebook. I try and read the posts, but do not always get to them and sometimes are so far down on my page that I miss them. Consequently, I may miss things. If you are having subscription issues, missing issues, etc. please email me at mjnrootdig@gmail.com to get a quicker answer.

If you are having computer issues, consider posting a query to the Gen-Newbie mailing list at Rootsweb. There are some really helpful people on the list, no question is too basic, and someone there may respond more quickly than I do.

Why the Media Makes a Difference

Sometimes people wonder why the media format in which a record is viewed makes a difference. After all, isn't microfilm the same as the original? I've taken another look at the digital copy I made of my grandfather's 1903 birth certificate. All the writing appears to be the same color, but the handwriting in a couple of places is different. I'm better that the original has slightly different color inks. A color copy would show those colors and make the difference more notable.

The different writing on my grandfather's birth certificate centers on his name. It looks like he was unnamed at birth and at some point in time the last name was written in. His first and middle names are printed (the rest of the information is in script)--I'm betting that was done when he applied for a social security number, but I'm just speculating.

Looking at the original would answer the question about the different handwriting as I bet there are three ink colors on the original.

Something a black and white microfilm image hides.

Benjamin Butler in pre-1870 Census Records

Subscribers know that two census entries for Benjamin Butler were analyzed in isssue 52. I've done some preliminary searching for the same individual in pre-1870 census records, but have been stymied. I have one potential entry for him in Michigan in 1850, but so far no entries in 1860.

For reasons outlined in issue 52, I'm waiting to do any more census work until some 1880 era records arrive that might more concretely tie Benjamin to the child I think is my ancestor. As discussed in 52, there are some questions about the family I'd like to have answered after the 1870 census that might tighten the connections I do have and actually might help me with the family pre-1870. My rationale for how the research is being managed was discussed in issue 52.

Subscribe now and I'll start your subscription with Issue 52.

We'll have updates on Benjamin Butler as research continues. And there'll be other families and their records discussed in Casefile Clues as well. I'm hoping to receive some records in the mail over the next few weeks that might answer these questions.

And anyone with time on their hands is welcome to try and locate Benjamin in 1860!

How much does it take to be consistent?

Issue 52 discusses an 1870 and 1880 census entry where the head of household has a different first name. Part of what is discussed is why I worked from the past to the more recent past and how much it takes to be consistent.

And you have to love this death certificate--at least the parents names are given. The names were a major help in connecting the 1870 and 1880 census entries, even though the death certificate is from 1940.

Not Certain of Her Age

The Civil War pension file of Frederick Price (brother-in-law of the William Ira Sargent we've written about before) contained over 300 pages. I've written about these files recently, so it'll be a while before this one appears in the newsletter.

However the testimony of Minerva Price indicates something that most of us should keep in mind. Her 1886 deposition indicated she was not certain how old she was. Several others in the Price family started their depositions with similar statements.

Since our analysis in Casefile Clues sometimes depends on accurate ages, Minerva's comment should give us case to think--especially when dealing with individuals from this era.

A synopsis of the case will appear in an upcoming issue of Casefile Clues--as it relates to the ancestry of William Ira Sargent. Frederick had three guardians appointed for him and it's quite an interesting story, but unfortunately doesn't provide immediate clues on Frederick's second wife Lucretia Sargent, sister of William Ira Sargent.

Wrapping Up 52 Issues

I'm taking a short break from working on issue 52 and decided to reflect briefly on the first year of Casefile Clues.

For those of you who don't know, I've written genealogy how-to material for some time, including Ancestry's former Ancestry Daily News and Dick Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter. For a variety of reasons, I decided to begin self-distribution of my material in late July of 2009. I really had no idea what the response would be or whether the number of subscribers would warrant the continuation of the newsletter.

I had long been told that there really wasn't a market for lengthy how-to material and that in the "online, web-based world," people wanted short. And a lot of the time I was told that people really didn't want anything close to an "academic" article. While I'm not kidding that Casefile Clues is an academic journal, I do think that we are meeting a need beyond the beginning type of article that is the bulk of what is out there. And so far I haven't gotten any complaints about the newsletter being too long.

We're getting a reasonable rate of renewals so far, which is good. I really don't know what renewal rate to expect, but I know some won't renew for a variety of reasons. The fact that renewals are coming in tells me that some needs are being met. I do thank everyone for their support.

I try and be honest about the content of the newsletter, although a few upcoming articles have been delayed for a variety of reasons. I don't write about anything I haven't researched myself and I don't write on topics with which I am not familiar. I won't tell people to go ahead and subscribe because eventually I'll cover Jewish immigrants to Canada if that's what they are interested in. Chances are that I'm not going to write about it because I have no familiarity with that type of research (along with a variety of other regions). However, I do feel (as others have indicated to me privately) that the methodology and process, which I always try to emphasize, applies to a broad type of research areas and problems.

I do appreciate suggestions from readers and try and incorporate them when I can. There is a good chance I have a similar problem somewhere. Every article revolves around a family I've actually researched. As regular readers know, I've actually broken down one of my own brick walls this year, which resulted in my discovery that one-eighth of my own background is pretty much entirely Colonial New England.

My children's background is fairly diverse. In 1800, my children's ancestors were living in the following regions (with approximate proportions shown first):
  • 1/4 Ostfriesland, Germany
  • 1/16 New England
  • 1/16 Ireland
  • 3/32 Germany
  • 1/32 Switzerland
  • 1/16 Sweden
  • 1/16 Belgium
  • 1/16 England
  • 1/16 Quebec
  • 1/16 Virginia/Kentucky
Many of the 1/16 lines were mid-19th century immigrants. The rest were in a variety of locations, and I'm not going to figure out any more percentages. Some took relatively unusual migration patterns which we'll discuss in future issues as well. These individuals ended up for the most part in Illinois, Iowa, and Missouri, with pitstops in most states east of that location. Over the coming year, we'll look at additional family members who were settlers in KS, NE, OK, TX, and a few other locations as well. There will also be pieces on some of my pre-Revolutionary war Virginia families and residents of Chicago and urban Pennsylvania.

All the while showing method and process, which I believe is very important.

In the last year, we've made the following changes since the first issue of Casefile Clues came out:
  • PDF format
  • proofreader
  • citation of sources in the spirit of Evidence Explained
  • use of illustrations
We're hoping to continue our growth over the next year. I appreciate the support I have received.

Back to work.....

Would Your Society or Library Like to Subscribe to Casefile Clues?

Would your genealogical society or library like to subscribe to Casefile Clues?

In summary, the requirements are that:
  • One copy be printed out for library use--with copyright footer printed on each page (which is how it comes anyway)
  • Electronic copies not be distributed
  • Electronic copies not be placed on any portion of the library website (whether a password si required or not)
I want distribution to be done in such a way that library patrons can read and view the newsletters, but that copyright be respected. I do try and keep subscription prices for the newsletter very reasonable.

Questions about library or society subscriptions can be addressed to me at michael.john.neill@gmail.com.
