    1. [Shanklin] RE ALFRED F SHANKLIN 1870-1897 AUSTRALIA/USA
    2. Carolyn Chalmers
    3. Hi Listers I am writing to see if anyone is able to solve a mystery. I am doing research into the RONALDS family, from Australia, England, Scotland, USA and New Zealand. I have a member Alfred Francis Ronalds Shanklin born 1870 in Victoria, Australia and died in October 1897 in the USA. His sister Margaret and brother-in-law Arthur Turpin and their two sons lived in the USA and died in New York, Queens Co. All I have is a death notice in the Gippsland Times dated December 1897, stating Alfred Shanklin died in the USA on October 3rd 1897. If anyone can assist me, I would appreciate it. Regards Carolyn Canberra Australia

    1. [Shanklin] [ADMIN] The most frequently asked question of subscribers is:
    2. Manaia Alofa
    3. Rootsweb mailing lists are automatic and are managed by list robots. These robots take care of subscription requests and bouncing (rejected) emails. The most frequently asked question of subscribers is: ***************** "Why have I been unsubscribed?" Answer: If your list mail cannot be delivered for any reason, the list robot unsubscribes you after a certain number of failed attempts. (For the SHANKLIN list the maximum member bounce score is: 3) This can happen for a number of reasons - some of the more common reasons are that your mailbox is full, your spam filter is blocking the list mail, your ISP is blocking list mail from Rootsweb, you have put an automatic responder on your email.... If you were unsubscribed and did not wish to be taken off the mailing list, simply subscribe again. However be forewarned that if whatever caused the list robot to unsubscribe you the first time is still happening, it will simply remove you again after a specific number of bounces--3--(rejected list mail to your email address). But as a courtesy to all SHANKLIN listers, I can re-subscribe you manually. Just let me know. ****************** Other questions asked are: "How do I unsubscribe?" Answer: Simply follow the instructions at the bottom of every list mail message. ****************** "Why is my mail not getting to the mailing list?" Answer: Make sure that you are sending from the same email you are subscribed under. The list robot does not recognize names. It only recognizes email addresses. If your sending email address is not on the subscriber list, your email will be rejected. ****************** "Why am I not getting list mail?" Answer: Check the HelpDesk notices in the yellow box for announcements about any technical problems with Rootsweb mail. http://helpdesk.rootsweb.com/ If you don't find the answer to your problem on the HelpDesk page you need to check if you are still subscribed to the list. You can get a list of all your subscribed to mailing lists from Password Central: http://passwordcentral.rootsweb.com/ If Password Central doesn't include all lists to which you should be subscribed, re-subscribe to any lists that are missing from your subscribed lists by sending a new e-mail to: LISTNAME-request@rootsweb.com (replacing the word LISTNAME with the actual list name). Put only the word SUBSCRIBE in the subject and message body of your e-mail. ****************** Should anyone need further elaboration then you may give me--Yours Truly--a contact. GRIN --Manaia [List-Admin] SHANKLIN-admin@rootsweb.com My gratitudes to Lorine McGinnis Schulze for sharing.

    3. Online Genealogy Dictionaries and Lists I have been collecting URLs (Web addresses) of various online dictionaries and lists that are useful to genealogists.

We need to get this information out to the public. This was posted on Ancestry Daily News. You can find it online at www.ancestry.com/dailynews Issue: October 7, 2004 Thanks, Sharon Pike Sharon@MeriwetherSociety.org Immediate Action Requested Legislation in Congress Seeks to Restrict Access to Birth Records; FGS Recommends Writing to Your Congressional Representatives The U.S. House of Representatives is considering a bill, House Resolution 10 (H.R. 10), which seeks to restrict access to birth certificates. This bill, which purpose is to respond to the threat of terrorism, is on a fast track to passage and has been voted on by several committees already. Your help is needed now. David Rencher, Chairman of the Record Access and Preservation Committee, a joint committee of the National Genealogical Society and Federation of Genealogical Societies, has sent a letter to the bill's sponsor, Congressman Dennis Hastert, recommending an amendment to the bill as follows: "However, nothing in this Chapter 2 shall be construed to require a State to change its law with respect to public access to (A) non-certified copies of birth certificates, or to (B) birth certificates or birth records once a period of 100 years has elapsed from the date of creation of the certificate or record." A copy of the letter is available on the FGS site at www.fgs.org/rpa/formalactions.htm. To view this bill, go to http://thomas.loc.gov. Enter HR 10 in the search box for "Bill Number." Action Is Needed Now Because this bill is moving toward passage so quickly, it is urged that the genealogical community take action immediately and let their representatives know that they are in support of David Rencher's amendment and the FGS position in this important matter. To find your state representative's contact information, go to www.house.gov/writerep/. How Should I Word My Letter? While you should word the letter in any way that is comfortable for you, it is recommended that you include the following as a portion of the letter: "While I support the intention to increase security to protect the U.S. from terrorists and those who wish to improperly take U.S. identities, I am concerned that those researching their family's history continue to have access to non-certified birth records. Therefore, in order to support HR-10 I ask that you amend HR-10 Section 3063(d)(2) by adding the following wording to the existing paragraph: 'However, nothing in this Chapter 2 shall be construed to require a State to change its law with respect to public access to (A) non-certified copies of birth certificates or to (B) birth certificates or birth records once a period of 100 years has elapsed from the date of creation of the certificate or record.' I believe that this additional language is imperative so that the states do not react by restricting all certificates to comply with the law, rather than dealing with certified as opposed to non-certified birth certificates. This proposed amendatory language would remind them that they can and should be treated differently."

    1. Derivation
    2. Shankland(Train)
    3. Hello, My name is John Shankland. Shankland is a Scottish name and has held together over time with the occasional misspellings of Shanklin. The exception to this is the Scots-Irish Shankland that was "brought" over to Ireland by the Scottish Earl of Annandale. Over time this family apparently became Shanklins. I am in touch with a researcher from that family and surprisingly we have found we are related via DNA. Looking on Ancestor.com I find that there are approximately 5 times as many Shanklins as Shanklands. My question is where did they all come from? What is the derivation of the name? It seems impossible that they all come from this one Irish family. Thanks, John

    1. Re: Still searching for parents of Nero, Martha, Jacob and Abraham
    2. This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Surnames: Shanklin Classification: Query Message Board URL: http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec/msg/rw/WGHBAIB/108.1.2.1 Message Board Post: While this sounds, at least on the surface, to be a plausible theory, I have some doubt. My first question is whether the original information was obtained from an interview directly from Muriel Johnson or was it passed through other generations? The main flaw that I can see is that my data shows d.o.b of Martha as 6 Apr 1821 and Jacob is older (abt 1820). IF this is correct and Elizabeth is (according to death cert.) born in 1808, that would be 12 years between her and Jacob. Not likely, I think, since there were only a span of 7 years for the 4 'known' children. Another point is that I show the 4 children as being born in Tennessee. This is possible since the last child (Nero) was born 6 dec 1827. This means that the father could have passed in Tennessee and the widow Shanklin moved north (possibly to join relatives), thereby putting her in Lawrence County Indiana by 1830. This is a terribly interesting puzzle that I'm following with great interest. Let's keep working this problem... the answer is out there!
