UGH GENERAL OVERVIEW TUTORIAL VIDEO Basic information on the layout of the Ustica Genealogy Homepage and how to read and effectively use the Family Charts
In a nutshell, simply:
Select a surname
Click on a letter from the alphabetic list to bring up a list
of surnames for that letter. Behind each surname, in parenthesis, will
be a count of the individuals with that surname. Clicking on a surname
will retrieve the family chart for that surname. By default only common Usticesi surnames are retrieved but there are also options for expanding the surname search available from the drop-down menus above the alphabaetic list.
Find your ancestors
Each family chart is ordered first alphabetically by the
given names of the "roots of the trees" and secondly within each "tree"
by birth date. Children are indented below the line for their
parents. Different colored icons are used as bullets before each line in a family chart to further help delineate different generations. Click on a spouse's last name to get to the spouse's family chart.
Links from a spouses last name will place that person within the viewable region of the new page.
Often that will be the first line of the new page.
Review the source
Documentation is retrieved by clicking on an individual's
first name. Usually only the pertinent information is copied but
some records contain great detail. There are no links to the actual
images of these records.
For your records:
Print a copy
You can print any page from this website
from the print function of your browser. Please note that the family
charts do not wrap to fit the size of your screen or paper. This
is done to preserve the clarity of the data. Try setting your paper
orientation to landscape (in your printer property settings) to capture
information that is scrolling off the page.
Get the original
It is a worthwhile effort to get copies of the actual records,
from which these charts are derived. In addition to the information
provided in the family charts, you will often find occupations, ages, street
addresses and actual signatures. Most of this information has
not been copied to this website. You can also verify that no mistakes
were made in the translation and recording of the record. The Ustica State
Civil records are available from your nearest Family
History Center. The New Orleans Civil records are available from
Orleans Public Library. Also review the Favorite Links page of Ustica.org for more useful resources.
