Birth Certificate - William Archibald Ranson

Yesterday I posted Archie's obituary. Today, lets take a look at his birth certificate.
Source: Rich County, Utah, Birth Certificates, 1909; Rich, Jan-Jun, Box 21, Folder 29, image 19, William Archibald Ranson, 21 March 1909; digital images, Utah Office of Vital Records, Utah State Archives (archives.utah.gov : downloaded 9 June 2011).

Archie's Birth Certificate also includes a Supplemental Report of Birth. According to the Utah State Archives website:
Included are Supplemental Report of Birth forms, which are used to certify that a name has been given to a child who was unnamed at the time the original birth certificate was filed, and Affidavit to Amend a Record forms, which are used to correct erroneous information or provide information missing from the original record. In some cases, these documents may be supplemented by correspondence or a copy of church records.
I wish I had the date when the Supplement was filed. It would be nice to know how long it took Joseph and Valate to name him.

Death Notice - Archie W. Ranson

As part of my recent scanning adventures at the in-laws house, I came across an awesome scrapbooks my mother-in-law put together. It included lots of pictures I haven't seen. Even my husband hadn't seen most of these! I scanned a few pages - really only the one's with any documents - knowing I would have to go back and scan all of it. I'll also need to sit down with my mother-in-law and get names for everyone in the pictures.

Here is one page for Troy's grandfather - Archie W. Ranson. He always went by "Archie" but his given name was William Archibald Ranson.
Page: Source: Midge Lund's private scrapbooks.
Obit. Source: clipped from Standard Examiner.

I spoke with Troy's mom to verify dates for all the pictures. Here's what we know.
Top Picture: Ervie Joseph, William Archibald "Archie", and Zentha Martha. I guessed taken about 1909-10, and Midge verified the image was dated 1910. Babies (boys as well as girls) wore dresses until about 2 years old...plus Archie doesn't look to be much older than 1 year. I assume this was taken in Randolph, as that is where Archie was born and raised until he was 12 years old.
Bottom Left Picture: Dated 1935.
Bottom Right Picture: Dated 1927. The L on his jersey is for Lewis Junior High School where he played on the team.
Obit Picture: Taken 1976. It is half of a picture of him and his wife Margaret.

His obituary was written by his wife Margaret Warner Ranson.

SNGF - "Heritage Pie Chart" - Troy's side

A few weeks ago Randy Seaver posted a Saturday Night Geneaology Fun Challenge. It's taken me this long to get to it!

Your mission tonight, should you decide to accept it, is to:
     1. List your 16 great-great-grandparents with their birth, death and marriage data (dates and places).  [Hint - you might use an Ancestral Name List from your software for this.]
     2. Determine the countries (or states) that these ancestors lived in at their birth and at their death.
     3. For extra credit, go make a "Heritage Pie" chart for the country of origin (birth place) for these 16 ancestors. [Hint: you could use the  chart generator from Kid Zone for this.] [Note: Thank you to Sheri Fenley for the "Heritage Pie" chart idea.]
     4. Tell us about it in your own blog post, in a comment to this post, or in a post on Facebook or google+.

I decided to split this up into two posts, one for Troy and one for me. Today, I'll share Troy's chart:


As you can see, this was the immigrating generation! Take a look at the raw data:

While most were born outside of the United States (9 out of 14), all died in the United States, and of those, all but one in Utah. Troy is from LDS Pioneer stock on both sides.

Here's the details on everyone. 
I just used the "narrative report" option in Roots Magic to get all this information. It's pretty long to read through, but this may help someone who's doing a google search on these same ancestors - I'd love to meet new cousins! You can really tell who I've done the most research on!
