Use your computer to organize genealogy finds
» 0 Comments | Post a Comment

A successful research endeavor results in the accumulation of reams of paper. Failure to organize the documents, however, can stunt the growth of what otherwise might have become a healthy family tree.

In last week's column I suggested that following a seven-step research process could train family historians to be methodical and approach research in an organized process.

This whole topic began when a reader asked for a resource to help her organize. There are plenty of commercial software products that guarantee to help you organize anything. But the truth is that every computer comes equipped with most of what you need to organize your documents.

I do recommend that you purchase genealogy software (FamilyTreeMaker, Roots Magic, Legacy, Reunion, etc.) to help you organize your information. More about that later.

Every computer has a folder called "Documents" or "My Documents." Picture that folder as a virtual filing cabinet, and we're going to put individual file folders into various drawers.

Under "Documents" create a subfolder and label it "Genealogy." Inside that folder create a separate folder for each surname you are researching. Exactly how you organize and label from this point can vary depending on personal preferences.

Under each surname, there will be various folders. Here are some of the folders I create for each surname:

Background: This is where I drop materials I find from a variety of sources This folder is filled with anything that explains or helps me understand my ancestor and the times and places in which he lived and worked. I might copy and drop snippets from websites or pages I scan from books at a library. Don't forget to record the source information onto the copies or scans!

Cemeteries: Sometimes we find surveys that record all the graves in a cemetery where our ancestors are buried. I copy and drop them into this file — the website might disappear so I don't want to assume it will be there when I need it again.

Emails: Under this folder are many other subfolders, each with the name of the relative writing to me. I give each email a new title that will be meaningful to me. For example, Mary Dawsey sends several emails about an old letter she discovered. I create a folder labeled "Mary Dawsey" and within that her emails would be "Michael Dawsey Letter 1" and "Michael Dawsey Letter 2," etc.

Family Folders: Keep in mind that the main folder in which we're working carries the family surname. Now I create a folder for each individual person I discover. As I collect documents and materials about that person, I can quickly and easily drop them into this file. With each document is the transcript that I discussed in last week's column. If a person is a key figure in research, I likely will collect many and varied documents about him. It keeps me organized to create additional subfolders for him to include things like "Censuses," "Land," "Military" and "Probate."

Photographs: If a photograph is of a single person, I place it in his individual person file of the family folders. But if the photograph is of a group of people, I place it in this separate file. If people have different surnames, I might label it as "Family and Friends of Michael Dawsey."

Research Plans: Last week, I explained the important role planning plays in keeping research organized. Those plans deserve their own folder — it also makes it easy to quickly access them when an opportunity for a research trip unexpectedly presents itself.

To Be Processed: This is sort of a dump folder. Rather than have loose paper piles all around, scan what isn't already digitized and drop it into this folder where it can safely sit until you have time to process it. Used properly, this file will keep you organized. Abuse it and it becomes just a hodgepodge of things you never get around to — leading to that state of disorganization we're trying to avoid.

Experience has taught me that genealogy software is not the center of the universe. I don't try to use all the bells and whistles it provides. I use it simply to organize the individuals and how they relate to one another.

By entering the key events and dates (such as birth, marriage, military service, appearance in censuses, migration routes and dates, etc.), I can use this software to give me a quick overview of the key times in each person's life and see his parents and his children.

The system I describe here works well for me. An identical system won't work for everyone, but I can pretty much guarantee you that if you faithfully use this or a similar system you'll stay organized.

http://www2.tbo.com/lifestyles/life/2011/jun/26/BANEWSO8-use-your-computer-to-organize-genealogy-f-ar-239752/

So get all your documents out of boxes and notebooks. Transcribe, analyze, scan and plan. You'll be so glad you did.

 WHY WE GET OLD

Cellular aging, or senescence, is the process by which a cell becomes old and dies. It is due to the shortening of chromosomal telomeres to the point that the chromosome reaches a critical length. Cellular aging is analogous to a wind up clock. If the clock stays wound, a cell becomes immortal and constantly produces new cells. If the clock winds down, the cell stops producing new cells and dies. Our cells are constantly aging. Being able to make the body's cells live forever certainly creates some exciting possibilities. Telomerase research could therefore yield important discoveries related to the aging process.

  http://www4.utsouthwestern.edu/cellbio/shay-wright/intro/facts/sw_facts.html

 The way we respond to stress has a bigger impact on our health than we previously thought. In 2009, the Nobel Prize in Medicine went to Elizabeth Blackburn, Carol Greider and Jack Szostak, who discovered a link between chronic emotional stress and telomerase (an enzyme responsible for repairing telomeres - the protective caps at the ends of chromosomes in cells that control aging).

 

#1 Tip: Sauna and steam-baths

Sauna and steam-baths cleanse the body and relax the mind by generating abundant sweat. This is achieved with a 10-20 minute session in a room warmed to 180+ degrees Fahrenheit.

However, relaxation and contentment are not the only health benefits sauna is offering. The heat releases poisons so that your body is able to get rid of them via perspiration. During a sauna session, we go through artificial fever state, which stimulates the immune system and supports the body's natural healing process. Plus, the increased blood flow to subcutaneous and surface tissue gradually improves the quality of the skin.

#2 Tip: Deep breathing

In modern society, the impact of breathing on our health goes largely unnoticed. It's a shame because when you breathe correctly, your body reacts in many positive ways.

Deep breathing reduces high blood pressure, raises our energy levels, relaxes muscles and improves athletic performance. It also helps us release tension and reverse the body's fight & flight reaction to stressful situations - no health club membership required.

#3 Tip: Massage therapy

Many people view massages as luxury splurges with no real health benefit. That is, however, far from the truth. This hands-on healing is terrific for removing blockages as well as for dealing with stress, migraines and neck pain. Another wonderful side benefit of massage is improved quality of sleep.

Both everyday experience and scientific research suggest that there are few things you can do to impact your life more powerfully and profoundly than learning how to cope with everyday stress. All you need to do is take the first step by taking enough time to slow down and relax.

Angels

Angels are messengers of God in the Hebrew and Christian Bibles along with the Quran. The English word angel is derived from the Greek γγελος, a translation of  (mal'akh) in the Hebrew Bible (Tanakh); a similar term,  (Mal� Ä«kah), is used in the Qur'an. The Hebrew and Greek words originally mean messenger, and depending on the context may refer either to a human messenger (possibly a prophet or priest, such as Malachi, "my messenger", but also for more mundane characters, as in the Greek superscription that the Book of Malachi was written "by the hand of his messenger" (€γγήλου)) or to a supernatural messenger,[1] such as the "Mal'akh YHWH," who (depending on interpretation) is either a messenger from God,[2] an aspect of God (such as the Logos),[3] or God Himself as the messenger (the "theophanic angel.")[1][4]

 The term "angel" has also been expanded to various notions of spiritual beings found in many other religious traditions. Other roles of angels include protecting and guiding human beings, and carrying out God's tasks.

Mothman (Movie made largely in Pittsburgh/Oakland area/Avalon, PA)



The state of West Virginia has played home to one of the most bizarre "pseudo-cryptids" ever reported, the unusual - but by no means, unique - Mothman.

The first sighting came in the early 1960s. A woman was driving along Route 2, near the Ohio River, with her father. As she neared the Chief Cornstalk Hunting Grounds, a large man-shaped figure walked out onto the road. As the woman slowed her car, the figure spread two large wings and took off. Ironically, the witness did not report the incident - "Who would believe us, anyway?"

The first sighting which received publicity, though, was one in 1965. A woman living near the Ohio River related how her son had told her one day of seeing "an angel" outside. She thought nothing more of it until about a year later.

In the summer of 1966, a doctor's wife in the same general area said that she had seen a six-foot long thing resembling a "giant butterfly". On November 12, five gravediggers (how appropriate a profession!) saw something which looked like a "brown human being" fly out of the trees near Clendenin. One of the witnesses, Kenneth Duncan, said that they watched the creature for almost a minute.

On the 14th of the month, Salem resident Newell Partridge saw two red objects hovering above a field. His German Shepherd, Bandit, took off into the field and was never seen by Partridge again.

The next night, Mr. and Mrs. Roger Scarberry and Mr. and Mrs. Steve Mallette were driving near the "TNT Area", near the town of Point Pleasant. A tall figure stood by the side of the road. "It was shaped like a man, but bigger," said Mr. Scarberry. "Maybe six and a half or seven feet tall. And it had big wings folded against its back." His wife commented on its huge red eyes, "like automobile reflectors."

Mr. Scarberry, who was driving, took off in his car at "better than a hundred miles per hour," the figure spread its wings and flew after the car. It didn't seem to flap its wings at all, and its wingspan was over ten feet. Mrs. Mallette said that it made a squeaking sound, "like a big mouse." The four also noted that a dead dog had been lying by the side of the road, but was gone when they returned.

They went to the offices of the Mason County sheriff and reported their sighting. Deputy Millard Halstead returned to the TNT Area with the four, and said that as he passed the spot where they had initially seen the figure, his police radio made a sound similar to a speeded-up record.

The TNT Area, which seemed to be a sort of home for the "Mothman," as it was quickly dubbed by the press, is a large tract of land. Small concrete "igloos" dot the landscape, used during World War II to store ammunition. The TNT Area is adjacent to the 2,500 acre McClintic Wildlife Station. The entire area is covered with dense forest, steep hills, and riddled with tunnels...

http://www.qsl.net/w5www/mothman.html 

Mothman is described as a 7-foot-tall (2.1 m) creature with glowing red eyes and wings; according to eyewitnesses, the creature was not particularly moth-like; rather, the name "Mothman" was coined by a journalist who was inspired by the then-popular television series Batman starring Adam West.[2]

HOW ARE YOU? 

What do you do when you feel sick or unhealthy?

Do you ask, "What can I do to feel better?

Who do you ask?

How do you search the Internet?

What sites do you visit to get the answer? 

 

FOLLOW ME!

When I was in the service the first command was, "Follow me!"

If you are a leader, you need the respect of your company, and they need to be able to follow you whenever you ask them.

If you do research, you need to read up on the topic. To master your subject, you need to find the "authority" on the subject, and see what they say about your problem.

 

For Example

If you have a headache, you need to see what type of headache it is. You need to know what others do to become better. The latest Migraine treatment is taking am asprin, a tylenol  and a cup of coffee or two tablets of the migraine formula. 

I would find out what Dr John Christopher would do.

I would see what the curezone.com says.

I would see what the best health sites say.

Qigong

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This article contains Chinesetext. Without proper rendering support, you may see question marks, boxes, or other symbolsinstead of Chinese characters.

Qigong[1] or chi kung[2] (气功) is the Chinesephilosophy and practice of aligning breath, physical activity and awareness for mental, spiritual and corporeal health, as well as the development of human potential.[3] It includes aspects of Chinese martial arts[4] and purportedly the spiritual awakening to one's true nature.[5]

Contents

 [hide]

[edit]Etymology

Qigong or Chi kung is an English form for two Chinese characters:  (æ°£) and gōng (功). Dictionary definitions of qi (or chi) usually involve "breath", "air", "gas" and "vapor" but it can also be used when describing the relationship between matter, energy and spirit.[6] Qi (often in the form chi, especially in the West) is also known as a focus point for energy in Chinese (and Chinese-influenced) martial arts such as kung fu, and often seen as an intrinsic life energy or vital force within living things. Definitions of the word gong (or kung) usually involve "force" or "power", with success implications like "achievement" and "results".

The two words are combined to describe systems and methods of cultivation and manipulation of this life energy, especially for health.[7]

[edit]Forms

Different segments within Chinese society have derived a variety of forms of qigong.[8]

The traditional Chinese medicine community uses qigong for preventive and curative functions.[9] The Chinese martial arts community considered qigong training an important component in enhancing martial abilities.[10] The religious community, including both Taoistand Buddhist traditions, uses qigong as part of their meditative practice.[5] Confucian scholars practice qigong to improve their moral character.[7]

In the 1940s and the 1950s, the Chinese government tried to integrate those disparate approaches into one coherent system with the intention of establishing firmer scientific bases for those practices and as part of the political philosophy of the Cultural Revolution. This attempt is considered by some sinologists as the start of the modern or scientific interpretation of qigong.[11][12] Mainstream science does not recognize the existence of qi or life force, and thus does not consider qigong scientific.

Through the forces of migration of the Chinese diasporatourism in China and globalization, the practice of qigong has spread from the Chinese community to the world.

The practices of qigong are differentiated by four types of training: dynamic, static, meditative and activities requiring external aids. Dynamic training involves choreographed movement and applies to physical/mental disciplines such as Tai chi chuanBaguazhangand Xing yi. Static training requires the practitioner to maintain the body in a particular posture.[13] Meditative training utilizes visualization, mantra, philosophical concepts such as qi circulation and breath awareness.[14]There are also training methods that involve an external agent such as the ingestion of herbs, massages, physical manipulation or interactions with other living organisms.[5] A qigong system can be composed of one or more types of training.[8]

Qigong is sometimes considered to be part of alternative medicine,[15][16] with positive effects on various ailments according to some sources.[17]

Some researchers are skeptical of qigong and label the subject matter a pseudoscience.[18]In addition, the origin and nature of qigong practice has led to misconceptions and misuses,[19] including psychiatric problems[12] and the formation of cults[20]

[edit]History

The ancient history of qigong are identified with the segment within Chinese society where the training is cultivated. Over time, the concept and practice of different types of qigong acquired similar philosophical bases. Within the last three decades, those exercises were explained from a scientific basis. The common thread throughout history is the increasing popularity of this system of mindful practice, which has spread throughout China and now across the world.

According to the traditional Chinese medical community, the origin of qigong is commonly attributed to the legendary Yellow Emperor and the classic Book of Internal Medicine.[21][22][23]

Archeological evidence may suggest that the first forms of qigong can be linked to ancient shamanic meditative practice and gymnastic exercises. The Mawangdui Silk Texts (168BCE) shows a series of Tao Yin (導引) exercises that bears physical resemblance to some of the health exercises being practiced today.[24][25] Shamanic rituals and ideas eventually evolved and formalized into Taoist beliefs and eventually incorporated into the field of traditional Chinese medicine.[26][27]

In the Taoist tradition, the writings of LÇŽozǐ ("Lao Tzu", ca. 400 BCE) and Zhuāngzǐ; ("Chuang Tzu", ca. 300 BCE) both describe meditative cultivation and physical exercises to extend one's lifespan and as means of accessing higher realms of existence.[28][29][30][31][32]The Taoist inner alchemical cultivation around the Song Dynasty (Chinese宋朝pinyin:Sòng CháoWade-Giles: Sung Ch'ao; IPA: [ sÊŠÌ‚Å‹ tʂʰɑ̌ʊ̯ ]) between 960 and 1279, continued those Taoist traditions.

Buddhism, originating in India and having its source in the Hindu culture, has an extensive system of meditation and physical cultivation similar to yoga to help the practitioner achieve enlightenment. When Buddhism was transmitted to China, some of those practices were assimilated and eventually modified by the indigenous culture.[33] The resulting transformation was the start of the Chinese Buddhist qigong tradition. Chinese Buddhist practice reaches a climax with the emergence of Chán (禪) Buddhism in the 7th century AD. Meditative practice was emphasized and a series of qigong exercises known as the Yijin Jing ("Muscle/Tendon Change Classic") was attributed to Bodhidharma. The Chinese martial arts community eventually identify this Yijing Jing as one of the secret training methods in Shaolin martial arts.[34]

Chinese scholars acknowledged KÇ’ngzǐ ("Confucius", 551–479 BCE) and Mèngzǐ("Mencius", 385–302 BCE) as the founders of the Scholar qigong tradition. In their writings, they alluded to the concepts of qi training as methods of moral training.[35]

Chinese martial arts influenced by all the different elements within Chinese society adapted and modified qigong theory with the goal of improving their fighting abilities.[5] Many Chinese martial arts paid homage to Taoism or Buddhism by claiming them as their original source. For example, Tai chi chuan is often described as being Taoist in origin.[36] Shaolin martial arts is named after the famous Buddhist Shaolin temple.[37]

The exchange of ideas between those different segments within Chinese society created rich, complex and sometimes contradictory theory and methods of training. The difficulty in determining the correct training method, the traditional “Master-student” method of transmission and the belief that qigong represents a special and valuable knowledge limited the research and development of qigong to small but elite elements within Chinese society. Specialized text were available but were secretive and cryptic and therefore limited to a selective few.[38] For the general population, qigong practice was a component of traditional Chinese medicine. This medical system was developed based on experience, along with religious, demononological and magical practices.[39]

The nature and values of Chinese society changed radically with the arrival and dissemination of Western ideas, technology and culture starting from the 16th century.[40] In the declining period of the Qing dynasty (1644–1912), the entire Chinese philosophy and culture was re-examined. Chinese medicine, as part of the Chinese tradition, was re-evaluated in response to the effectiveness of Western medicine.[41] The conflict between the Eastern and Western approaches reached a crisis point at the beginning of the Republican period. Larger segments within Chinese society begin to openly challenge traditional Chinese philosophies such as Confucianism and Taoism and advocated the wholesale adoption of Western principles. In response, many nationalists counter by pointing out the limitation of Western society and the success of Chinese ideas such as TCM and qigong. The result was a great deal of publications and writings promoting Chinese cultural practice such as qigong and introduce those ideas to the general population.[42] These conflicting worldviews will shape the development of qigong.

During the turmoil of the fall of the Qing Dynasty and through to the Republican Period(1912–49), Chinese society was fighting for its own survival and there was very little thought on the development of qigong.

Concerted efforts to re-establish Chinese culture under a new ideology begin after the creation of the People’s Republic of China in 1945. The new ruling government under the leadership of Mao Zedong rejected all ties to traditional Chinese philosophies such as Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism. Instead, the Chinese government promoted a socialist view. Through a series of government directed programs that lasted for nearly three decades (1949–1976), the entire fabric of Chinese society was torn apart and reorganized. It is in this environment that the current attitude to qigong in the Mainland was born.

Mao Zedong himself recognized the conflicting aims between the rejection of feudalisticideas of the past and the benefits derived from those ideas. Traditional Chinese medicine was a clear example of this conflict. His solution can be summarized by his famous phrase “Chinese medicine is a great treasure house! We must make efforts to uncover it and raise its standards!” which legitimized the practice of Traditional Chinese medicine and created an impetus to develop a scientific base for traditional Chinese medicine.[39] The subject of qigong under went a similar process of transformation. The historical elements of qigong were stripped to create a more scientific bases for the practice.[43]

In the early 1950s, Liu Guizhen (劉貴珍) (1920–83), a doctor by training, used his family’s method of body cultivation to successfully cure himself of various aliments.[44] He then promoted his method to his patients and eventually published a book, Qi Gong liaofa shiyan (氣功療法實驗) to promote his successes. His efforts to re-define qigong without a religious or philosophical context proved to be acceptable to the ruling government.[45] The popularity and success of Liu’s book and the government’s strong support for Traditional Chinese medicine resulted in the formation of Qigong department within Universities and hospitals that practiced Traditional Chinese medicine. As a result, the first institutional support for qigong was established across China but this practice remained under tight control and had limited access to the general public.[43]

In the late 1970s, with the fall of the Gang of Four and the start Era of Reconstruction, there was a new openness in Chinese society. The practice of qigong has spread from a institutional setting to a popular movement based on charismatic promoters. Guo Lin (郭林), a Beijing artist who claimed to have cured herself of uterine cancer in the 1960s, was one of the first qigong masters to teach qigong openly to the general public outside an institutional setting.[20] Scientists, free from the repression of the Cultural Revolution was able to seek new challenges. Among some of the new subjects they studied was the effect of qigong in order to provide a scientific base for this practice. In 1979, Gu Hansen of the Shanghai Institute of Atomic Research first reported on the external measurement of qi. This research proved to be critical in promoting the notion of a science bases for qigong. Other reports of external evidence of qi quickly followed. Other forms of measurements, personal testimonies on the effectiveness of qigong treatment and demonstration of the uses of qigong found in the martial arts were used to illustrate the practical realities of the qigong.[20][43]

In the early 1980s, the enthusiasm for this new external qi paradigm eventually leads to the use of qi as an explanation for paranormal abilities such as Extrasensory perception (ESP) and psychokinesis.[46] The increasingly exaggerated claims of qigong practice prompted some elements within the Chinese government to warn of the dangers of this paranormal craze and the prevalence of pseudo scientific beliefs.[47] Leading public figures Qian Xuesen (钱学森), eminent scientist and founder of Chinese Rocketry and Zhang Zhenhuan(张震寰) a former general, rushed to defend qigong practice. They champion the view of qigong as being a new science of the mind. A compromise on the support of qigong activities was eventually reached by various fractions within the Chinese government. Qigong activity was to be regulated with the establishment of the China Qigong Scientific Research Association was formed under the leadership of Zhang Zhenhuan and overt criticism of the paranormal research was to be muted.[20]

By the middle of the 1980s, there were already 2000 qigong organizations and between 60 and 200 million practitioners across China. This represented almost one fifth of the Chinese population. This growth was fueled by the tacit support of small elements within the Chinese government, the reduced criticism of qigong practice, the pent-up demand within Chinese society for alternative belief systems and the improved methods of communication resulted in mass adaptation of qigong practice.[48] By the end of the 1980s, the qigong practices could be found within all segments of Chinese society.[49]

By the end of the 1990s, the explosive growth in the number of qigong practitioners had led to the revival of the old traditions that accompanied qigong development. Qigong organizations such as the Falun Gong re-introduced moral and religious elements associated with their training methods. Such practices eventually led to a direct conflict with the central authorities. By 1999, there was a systematic crackdown on qigong organizations that were perceived to be challenging the State’s control over Chinese society.[50] Since the crackdown, qigong research and practice are officially supported only in the context of health functions and as a field of study within traditional Chinese medicine.[51][52]

Migration, travel and exploration were the first reasons for the spread of qigong practice beyond the Chinese community. Occidental societies first encounter qigong concepts through exposure to traditional Chinese medicine, Chinese philosophy or the Chinese martial arts.[53]

It was not until the opening of China with the visit of President Nixon in 1972 and the subsequent exchanges between China and the West that Western society became aware of the promise of qigong practice. The ideas of qigong was quickly embraced by alternative health care practitioners[54]The idea of qi as a form of living energy also found a receptive audience within the New Age movement.[55] When the Chinese qigong community started to report cases of paranormal activity, Western researchers in the field were also excited by those findings. Chinese findings were reviewed [56] and some qigong practitioners were invited to the West to demonstrate those results.[46]

The American public’s first exposure the qigong was in the PBS series Healing and the Mind with Bill Moyers in 1993.[57] In the documentary, Moyers provided an in-depth look at healing alternatives to Western medicine and introduced the audience to the success of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture and qigong. As a result, qigong practice spread to the general public.[58]

Today, millions of people around the world practice qigong and believe in the potential benefits of qigong in varying degrees. Similar to its historical origin, those interested in qigong come from diverse backgrounds and practise it for different reasons.
