Searching online presents many of the most challenging issues when it comes to verifying sources. Primary sources were created at or close to the time of the event by someone with personal knowledge of the event (for example, a birth date provided by the family doctor for the birth certificate).
If the record you are seeing is a photocopy, digital copy, or microfilm copy of the original source, then it is likely to be a valid representation. Compiled records (which include abstracts, transcriptions, indexes, and published family histories) are more likely to have missing information or transcription errors. Today many people visit cemeteries and memorials to remember family by placing flowers on graves, taking a moment to ponder memories, share heartfelt feelings, bow in reference for family, friends, and acquaintances who have been laid to rest. This journey will lead you to discover, uncover, and recover the one-of-a-kind story of the ancestral lines whose path leads directly to yours. Do not underestimate the value of your ancestors' story or the story you are currently living. Before I say anymore, I'd like to share with you a personal experience about how I began my journey as a genealogist.
Following Mom's passing and funeral, my brother, sister, and I met for one last time in Mom's front room. As soon as she left, my brother and I knelt in prayer and gave thanks to our Father in Heaven for our mother and asked a blessing that relationships with our sister would heal in time. Throughout the night, I went from room to room, having the same experience of knowing where to look in each room. As the morning progressed, I became grateful that I had heeded the promptings of the night before, as my sister made it clear that my brother and I were no longer welcome in what was now her home and that we would never receive any of moms pictures or records.
Three weeks to the day after Mom's passing, I had a dream where I heard a knock at the front door. I pondered the dream until it was time to rise to get ready for work, trying to make some sense of what I had experienced. In the year that followed, I was able to meet with and record oral histories with each of the ten individuals. In the beginning, interviewing Mom's friends and family was the limit of my intended participation in fulfilling the solemn promise I had given my mother in my dream. Since August 3, 1998, I have had countless experiences that have forged my path as a genealogist. As the keeper of the record, I seek to fulfill my role by carefully using the time I have available to record, manage, organize, extend, and expand my family tree.

It has emerged that Government officials have been discussing possibility of banning gazumping in an attempt to save £270 million a year. Gazumping is when the seller verbally accepts an offer from a prospective buyer, but then accepts a higher offer from another buyer. Managing Director at the National Association of Estate Agents, Mark Hayward, told the Telegraph a€?The English system for buying and selling property dates back to the 1920s and has not been updated for nearly 100 years. The Department for Business, Innovation & Skills policy makers have met with the Conveyancing Association and several other organisations to address the issue and look at solutions.
Our experienced specialist team of 'Law Society Conveyancing Quality Scheme' accredited conveyancing lawyers in Sheffield and Doncaster have expert local knowledge to help you with your property purchase or sale. If you require advice about buying or selling property, contact Vicky Woodhouse in Sheffield on 0114 272 1884. Taylor Bracewell operates from offices in Thorne Road and Ten Pound Walk in Doncaster and Fountain Precinct in Sheffield. When a person passes away without a valid Will, their estate must be shared following the rules of intestacy.
Furthermore, the number of enquiries relating to people who have died without making a Will has doubled over the past 5 years according to the Citizens Advice Bureau; an increase of 2,225 from 1,522 in 2011 to 3,747 in 2015.
The persona€™s estate will be allocated following the Intestacy rules, which may not follow the deceased persona€™s wishes. Partners who are not married or in a registered civil partnership cannot inherit from each other unless there is a valid Will.
You will be able to discuss any changes with a Solicitor who is experienced in issues relating to Wills and will be offered the best advice for your own circumstances. Business tycoon, Ken Jordan, was in his 70s when he started a relationship with his wifea€™s cousin, 65 year old Bernice Elliot.
Mr Jordan passed away in 2012 on his 75th birthday, only months after removing his 58 year old daughter, Ruth Simmonds, from his Will and leaving all his money to Bernice Elliot. During the case at the High Court, Mrs Simmonds described her father as a€?confuseda€™ and not of sound mind at the time he signed the Will in the nursing home where he passed away.
Judge Edward Murray ruled that Mr Jordan showed no signs of being a€?insanea€™ or a€?delusionala€™ at the time. Mrs Simmonds would have been entitled to £100,000 under an earlier Will, if Mr Jordan had not disinherited her. She used to provide transport and visit him at the Sunrise Care Home, where he spent the last year of his life following the diagnosis of terminal cancer.
According to an article in the Telegraph, Richard Mumford, Mr Jordana€™s brother in law and solicitor who drafted the Will, described him a€?as sharp as a pina€? at the time.
Mrs Simmonds lawyers claimed that there were a€?real doubtsa€? over the mental capacity of Mr Jordan and his ability to make a valid Will in the months before he died. Lauren Smith, Head of Wills, Trusts and Probate in our Sheffield office, explains a€?This case highlights how important it is that Wills are professionally drafted.
Peoplea€™s circumstances often change throughout life so it is vitally important to ensure that you have a Will and that it is up to date, reflecting your wishes at all times. Our team can advise you about your Will, the considerations you should make, whether you have any Inheritance Tax issues to take into account and how best to protect your assets.
The Mental Health Charity, Mental Health Foundation, have noted that mental health problems are the leading cause of sickness absence at work. As a HR professional, I have worked with organisations and fellow HR Managers to effectively manage numerous absences, including those reported to be due to mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety, bi-polar, mania and obsessive compulsive disorder. The Taylor Bracewell HR & Employment Team is passionate about raising awareness of and supporting effective responses to mental health awareness. The importance of effectively managing our mental wellbeing and its direct impact on productivity cannot be overemphasised.
The ISAs are per person rather than per house, which means if two people are buying a house together they can benefit from opening two Government ISAs. The Help to Buy ISA was introduced in December 2015 and enables savers to top up their deposit with a 25% bonus from the Government. Anyone aged 16 and above can set up a Help to Buy ISA as long as they fit the eligibility criteria.
It is possible to withdraw money from the Help to Buy ISA at any time, should the saver wish to do so. When closing the account to purchase a house, the bonus must be claimed by the conveyancer. Our experienced specialist team of 'Law Society Conveyancing Quality Scheme' accredited conveyancing lawyers in Sheffield and Doncaster have expert local knowledge to help you buy or sell a property. Wea€™d like to thank Taylor Bracewell and all the people who made their will during Will Aid month last November. Will Aid also gives people the opportunity to leave legacy gifts, and we are extremely grateful to everyone who chose to include the Red Cross in their will, making a promise that help will always be there when someone needs it in future.
Solicitorsa€™ firm Taylor Bracewell, with offices in Doncaster and Sheffield, have raised an amazing £12,890 for charity by taking part in the Will Aid scheme where they wrote Wills for local people and asked them only to consider making a donation to charity. John Coulthurst from British Red Cross paid the firm a visit last week to present them with a certificate to show their fantastic achievement and to let them know how the money they raised will be spent. Lauren Smith, Head of Wills, Trusts and Probate at Taylor Bracewella€™s Sheffield office, wrote nearly 160 Wills during the month of November, generously giving her time for free for the whole month. As well as raising funds for the Will Aid charities, the scheme helps to ensure that people in this area have a professionally drawn up Will.
Wea€™re already used to having to prove our identity when purchasing property, opening bank accounts etc, under tight anti money laundering regulations. In order to further tackle corruption, money laundering and terrorist financing, the government has introduced legislation coming into effect in June this year, which will make the UK the first G20 country to have a central registry, accessible to the public, showing who really owns and controls UK companies.
Following the a€?Panama Papersa€™ debacle, it is now proposed that foreign companies should declare the details of beneficial owners before they are able to buy property in the UK. The high values of property in London in particular, presents an opportunity for criminals to launder considerable sums of money in one transaction. The proposals were welcomed at yesterdaya€™s Anti-Corruption Summit, though critics say the proposals do not go far enough and there are no clear indications of how these regulations would be enforced or what the penalties would be for non-compliance. JCI is a young professionals networking and personal development organisation targeted at individuals between the ages of 18 and 40.

In November last year, building societies and mortgage providers reviewed the maximum age limit to take out a mortgage.
A company called Hodge Lifetime are piloting a 55+ mortgage scheme, specifically designed for older borrowers. It is an interest-only residential mortgage a€“ this means you will only pay interest on the loan on a monthly basis until the term has ended.
You can apply for the mortgage up to the age of 85 and the maximum term is up to the age of 95..
The amount you can borrow is determined by your income and expenditure, and interest rates depend on the length of the mortgage term. The scheme is currently only available through selected mortgage providers; it is, however, expected to become more widely available over the next few months.

There are often may reasons for making a loan or gift to family members and it is essential to ensure that you take professional advice on this before making any decisions.


As a parent or grandparent you have to be very careful to make sure that your interests are also protected. New research has revealed that parents will lend their children over £5 billion this year to help them climb onto the property ladder.
The survey, sponsored by the Centre for Economics and Business Research and the Legal & General Financial services group, shows that parents finance 25% of all property purchases in the UK. The average contribution from parents is £17,500, which is equivalent to 7% of the average purchase price. If you have surplus money a gift to a child can be a great way of reducing your estate for Inheritance Tax purposes but there are certain rules which must be followed to ensure the gift if made in the most effective way.
Our Solicitors are experts in advising you on the various advantages and disadvantages of making any gifts or loans to ensure that everyonea€™s interests are protected, and to try and prevent any conflict in the future. Since the mid 1990a€™s the number of unmarried couples has doubled to almost 3 million and cohabitation has become much more socially acceptable.
This is a common misconception, when the reality is that in England and Wales there are no specific laws to protect the financial interests of couples living together.
If you are living with your partner and are seeking financial protection, then a cohabitation agreement could be the right option for you.
A cohabitation agreement can set out in writing who owns the assets and what will happen to them if the couple should separate. Our dealings with Taylor Bracewell and in particular Lauren Smith was a very smooth & informative process. All these factors make the idea of sorting out other legal tasks much less daunting, and I will definitely use Taylor Bracewell for those too.
This year, Taylor Bracewell were once again proud to sponsor Doncastera€™s flagship annual Business Conference, held on Friday 22nd April at The Legacy Centre. Continued partnership working between public and private sector, raising aspirations, and promoting all that is great about Doncaster to the outside world were the key messages at this yeara€™s Conference. Taylor Bracewell was well represented in the audience, with members of all departments attending, including some of our Apprentices a€“ the future of business in Doncaster. Sophie Abson, also an Apprentice based within our Business Law team, added a€?The experience was very informative. In an interview with the Doncaster Free Press early in the day, Ed Milliband, MP, highlighted some of the exciting developments, such as the National College for High Speed Rail. In his conference speech, Dan Fell said a€?Sometimes, in order to fix internal issues, we must look outwards firsta€¦I would urge us first to concentrate on better promoting ourselves outwardly.
The devolution of the Sheffield City Region, giving its leaders more decision-making powers over transport, skills and jobs growth, as well as access to £30m a year of government money over 30 years, was also discussed during the conference. I have had little experience with solicitors over the years but you all handled my questions with patience and the task was comlpeted very efficiently.

We came to sheffield only 6 months ago and so it was our very good fortune to find Taylor Bracewell. This ougt to have been recommended by our previous solicitor at the time of our house purchase. In contrast, full-time working mothers earn 11percent less than women who do not have children. A recent study of carried out by the Trades Union Congress (TUC) analysed the pay of 17,000 42-year-olds in full-time work. Working fathers tend to work longer hours after having children, while mothers tend to work shorter hours or go part-time. 77% of new mothers and pregnant women have experienced discrimination in the workplace according to the Equality and Human Rights Commission and Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.
The pay gap applies to those without children too; childless women earn 12% less than childless men working in similar jobs. If you'd like some practical advice and guidance regarding discrimination in the workplace or any other Employment Law or HR matter, please get in touch.
When separated parents cannot agree arrangements about where their children will live or the time they should spend with each parent, they will need to look into the options available to resolve the dispute. Mediation is an option parents are encouraged to consider prior to making an application to the court. In February 2016, Cafcass (Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service) confirmed a 10% increase in the number of cases they dealt with, compared to February 2015. In some circumstances, mediation may not be the best course of action, perhaps because one party refuses to attend or there are allegations of intimidation or harassment. These statistics confirm that despite alternative dispute resolution methods being encouraged, more and more parents are going through the courts. In some instances children find themselves caught in the middle of their parentsa€™ disagreements and this can be worrying for them. Voices in the Middle is their current campaign, encouraging young people to share their stories. We have a specialist team of very experienced family law solicitors at Taylor Bracewell in both Doncaster and Sheffield. Having a formal tenancy agreement in place is not a legal requirement; however it is something that we would strongly advice. Research carried out by Direct Line exposed worrying statistics about the lack of formal tenancy agreements in place. Out of the contracts that are in place, 58% of landlords who do not use an agent used amended tenancy agreements from old contracts, 38% used contracts from other landlords and 20% used an updated template they found online. It is possible to have a verbal tenancy agreement in place, which would be construed as an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement.
Another concerning statistic is that despite the fact ita€™s a legal requirement to do so, 9% of landlords have failed to make their tenants aware that their deposit is held in a government-backed tenancy deposit protection scheme (TDP).
Taylor Bracewell are always very professional in dealing with our personal or business matters. It's not necessary to write the answers to the above questions, but writing your conclusions will help to clarify your thinking and reveal any inconsistencies. If the website or database you are using does not have digital images of the actual source, you can search to find the source references. There is a growing trend of many online databases to provide access to scanned images of original documents.
When you find information that doesn't provide you a source for the database or website, ask yourself what kind of record could have supplied the information.
The exact name of this feature may vary from one program to another, but all the better genealogy programs have the capability to find suspicious data within a database. The steps of the journey toward learning more about our progenitors are guided by the questions we ask.
Your ancestors' path is forged by time, choices, and life's experiences that begin in the home and expand into the lands where they lived. You'll understand how the story is influenced by culture, religion, political endeavors, education, and social and economic status. I had gathered with my brother and sister to discuss with my mother her desires for what we all thought would be several months of life and to help her put her affairs in order. As I went through the drawers, I found them all empty except for a larger drawer that Mom had filled with paperback books she had read. I had no answer, so I discarded the experience as an interesting dream with little or no meaning.
During the night, the same dream I'd had three weeks earlier began to unfold exactly as it had played out before.
My mind began to fill with names, with the instruction that I should talk to and record my interview with each person. Each one of them was able to reveal a unique chapter of my mother's life that spanned the sixty-five years she had lived. From conducting oral histories to searching the lands of my ancestors, I have become the keeper of the record.
I have come to understand what Mother meant when she asked me to "tell the children" about her. Soon you're surrounded with papers, documents, names, dates, and locations and are left with a head full of swirling questions. Once you have focused a specific area to research, create a log to help you develop a big picture of what you have and where you want to go. If you would like to review your Will to ensure it meets your needs, or discuss any changes that may be required, please contact Lauren Smith on 0114 272 1884.
She was adamant that her father had no reason to remove her inheritance and insists that he cannot have been in his right mind when he did so.
Mr Mumford was able to testify to as to Mr Jordana€™s wishes and his mental capacity when he made the Will. This corroborates the findings of a 2015 CIPD Absence Management survey, which found that 2 out of 5 employers cited an increase in mental health problems in their workforces.
I currently advise and support managers and businesses on how to respond to employees who are experiencing mental health difficulties. In February 2016, experienced Employment Lawyer and Head of Department, Sara Ellison and I ran a Meet the Experts event in Sheffield focussed on Employee Wellbeing. Here are a few tips on how best to manage your mental wellbeing, your colleagues, and employees within your organisation.
To assist, there are two ISAa€™s aimed specifically at first time buyers; the Help to Buy ISA and the Lifetime ISA. For any withdrawals after this, the saver will lose the Government bonus and interest, and will be subject to a 5% charge. The time donated by solicitors and the generous donations from everyone who made a will are already helping to save and transform lives around the world. Their achievement ranks them as the top donating Will Aid firm in the whole of the North of Britain. Will Aid, now in its 27th year, is a charity scheme that raises money for nine charities: ActionAid, British Red Cross, Christian Aid, NSPCC, Save The Children, Sightsavers, Age UK, SCIAF (Scotland) and Trocaire (Northern Ireland). Peter de Vena Franks, Campaign Director, is delighted with how solicitors and will makers have responded to the scheme. A recent study found that a quarter of solicitors firms surveyed had experienced clients attempting to use property transactions to launder money or commit fraud.


Between 2004-2014, over £180m worth of property in the UK has been investigated by UK law enforcement as suspected proceeds of corruption. As an organisation, they focus on five areas: Personal Development, Community, Business, International and Social. Statistics carried out in 2013 recorded a 36% increase from the previous two years in the number of people aged 55+ taking out a mortgage.
Concerns have been raised by the FCA, who estimates that many interest-only borrowers will have insufficient funds to cover the remaining loan capital at the end of their term in 2020.
Their testimonial said a€?To make out a Will when we did not know how to prepare it, it was a great relief to see Lauren Smith.
It is expected that parents will provide deposits for over 300,000 mortgages to buy homes in excess of £77 billion. Collectively, this makes the a€?Bank of Mum and Dada€™ the equivalent to a top ten mortgage lender.
Grandparents are also common contributors, providing financial support into 1 in 10 parental loan purchases.
For example if they are buying a property with their spouse or partner and that relationship comes to an end, would your money be reflected in your childa€™s share of the property? What if your child was to be come bankrupt or ended up getting divorced, is your interest still protected?
On average, one in four people assume that unmarried couples have the same rights as married couples.
In addition and in a case involving property, a Declaration of Trust can specify the percentage share each party would receive from a property. We were very pleasantly surprised by how little time and paperwork we had to do, as well as how down to earth and honest the staff were. He explained that he felt the day was about showcasing Doncastera€™s great talent and learning from each other and outlined his focus on skills, raising aspirations for young people and using our resources to give our young people the best opportunities for the future.
This is because doing so will bring in investments, training, tourism, wealth and jobs.a€? He added a€?Meaningful and lasting partnerships between the private and public sector are key. I am proud to be Partner in a growing legal firm that is solidly rooted in South Yorkshire and am excited about what the future holdsa€?, says Alison Kitchman, Partner and Collaborative Family Lawyer at Taylor Bracewell. We are proud, but not at all surprised, to say that Robert Clarke, Solicitor in our Dispute Resolution team, was featured. At certain points in life the majority of us would benefit from expert help with complex issues such as pension planning, securing a mortgage or for advice on a legal issue. Those who have their first child after reaching 33 earn 12% more than those without children. The mediation process enables parents to meet in a neutral location in the presence of a mediator to discuss the situation and attempt to come to an agreement.
They also noted a 6% overall increase over the past six months, compared to the previous year. The next stage after mediation, if an agreement has not been reached, would be court proceedings.
As members of Resolution, and with trained Collaborative Family Lawyers in our team, the Taylor Bracewell Family Law Team in Sheffield and Doncaster will work with you to work towards achieving your desired outcome.
Our Family team have been recommended for the second year running in the 'Legal 500 UK' - one of only two legal firms based in Doncaster and Sheffield whose family departments have been recommended.
Having a document in place protects the interests of both the landlord and the tenant, setting out clear expectations for each party. These agreements can, however, be unreliable and can make things more difficult, should a dispute arise. Landlords should provide their tenant with the name and contact details of the TDP and its dispute resolution service within 30 days of taking the deposit. 3:12-cv-06074-RBL alleging copyright infringement, unfair trade practices, tortious interference, and unjust enrichment (the "Litigation"). As I reviewed the information, I found one line that ended in the late 1700s in North Carolina. Whenever you find a record on the web that relates you to your family, look for a source of the data. For example, if the source of the information is a genealogy or history book, look for a library in the area you are searching that has a copy and is willing to provide photocopies. The vast majority of Internet resources have been copied, abstracted, transcribed, or summarized from previously existing, original sources. For example, if it's an exact date of birth, then the source is most likely a birth certificate or tombstone inscription. These built-in quality checks help you quickly identify questionable data, such as very young girls or elderly women giving birth.
It's about the people known, the places visited, the decisions made, the opportunities lost or gained; it's about the spiritual, physical, and mental exuberance and folly. You'll gain a front-row seat to the historical events that surrounded members of your family, from war and migration to famine and struggles for civil rights. There were three events in the ensuing six weeks that inspired me to begin a life focused on family history, sharing knowledge, and helping others.
While at her side, I saw the manifestation of God's intervention and love for one of his children. Whatever is left when you leave is mine." My sister pointed to a pile of things that were in the middle of the floor and instructed my brother and I that we could take what we wanted.
I pulled out half the books, became frustrated, and put the books back in the drawer, thinking that there was nothing there.
In addition to the oral history, I received memorabilia that represented their relationship, such as cards, letters, photographs, documents, and more.
The cut-off date to open an account is 30th November 2019, but you can continue to contribute funds into your ISA until 2029.
Not only does it ensure that a persona€™s money and possessions are distributed as they wish but it means that they have a say in who looks after any children they may have if something should happen to them before those children reach 18. This new membersa€™ event looks to summarise all 5 of these aspects to give both new and non-members alike an idea of what they can gain through joining our organisation. This trend is expected to continue, encouraging mortgage providers to introduce new schemes. She talked through all the steps and really we came away feeling as though a great worry had been lifted off us.
It is thought that these rights are automatically accrued after the couple have lived together for a period of time. Listing professionals alongside verified reviews from their existing clients makes it easy to find a respected and trusted expert like Robert to help. She recommended a change in the type of joint ownership of our property to avoid problems later on.
The mediator is unable to give legal advice; they remain neutral and ensure all options are being considered. Taylor Bracewell is a founding member of this fantastic charity and keen supporters of the work they do for young people. MyGenShare denied the allegations by Cyndi's List and any "wrongdoing" and brought a counterclaim for defamation, tortious interference, and violation of the Washington Consumer Protection Act. I began the process of becoming familiar with the line and finally decided that I would like to see if I could extend the line.
Understanding the difference between these different types of sources will help you best assess how to verify the information that you find. If it is an approximate year of birth, then it may have come from a census record or marriage record.
With experience and focused persistence, the journey became easier, increasingly successful, and more rewarding. At that point, I thought, well, if I am going to talk to these people, I should also talk to . Often you find that when you focus on top priority research, many other items on your list are completed also. We cannot speak highly enough of Lauren and would like to say a very big thank you to her for being so efficient.
We would like to congratulate Robert on being one of the Top 175 - ita€™s a great endorsement of the service Robert provides. Within a few weeks of research, I cracked the puzzle and was able to start extending the line.
You could also send an email to the author or contributor and politely ask for source citations.
If the source is a microfilm record, you will most likely be able to secure the original from your local family history center, where the film can be borrowed and viewed.
She knew everything about what Mom wanted and needed, yet the only opinion and decision that mattered to her was her own. Even as we sought to help Mom write her last will and testament, all that could be heard was "That's mine." It became an argument over things. At the bottom of the drawer was a sack filled with Mom's important papers, such as her birth certificate, marriage license, photographs, and other documents. I was next guided to a drawer in the kitchen where I found, in a plastic bag, key photos of Mom's life. Now here I was, standing in the middle of her front room, feeling lost and in need of direction regarding where to begin. As you are conducting your focused research, you will always come up with ideas for research you want to conduct that is outside the focus of your current line of inquiry.
I immediately erased what I had added to the list and then knelt in prayer, asking for forgiveness and requesting that the stream of thought return. After about twenty minutes of prayer, the first five names reappeared in my mind, followed by five new names. You can then go through the file at a later date, organize your notes, and start the next task. My instructions were to contact each person and conduct oral histories in regards to their relationship with my mother.
While focused research will help keep your genealogy work organized and streamlined, it's important not to get so focused on finding a single individual or piece of information that we don't look at extended family, neighbors, and the migration patterns of the entire community. Often the missing person (or piece of information) will pop up in someone else's family in a completely different geographic location.
You can go to almost any Internet search engine today and within a few minutes find hundreds of questionable "facts." I've seen the same birth recorded as happening in Florida in the 1600s and in Utah in the early 1800s. I've seen records of mothers who supposedly gave birth to children at the age of five, as well as twenty-two-year-old grandfathers.
