My Research Progress: Immigration Information

The next research area we will explore in the My Research Progress view is Immigration Statistics. If you click on the Immigration Statistics link, the center area of the screen in My Research Progress view will appear. Immigration information is highly customizable in GenDetective by using My Personal Research Goals.  Due to this flexibility you may not see as many of the research areas listed in your bar chart as discussed here, or if you do not research immigration, the link for immigration statistics may be disabled.  In the top 2/3 of the screen you will see a bar chart and below the chart a series of links that echo or repeat the information that is graphically displayed in the bar chart.

Immigration Statistics

Each bar in the chart displays a series of statistic labels and up to 3 colored bars:

  1. Located research: people with an identified date or location
  2. Partial research: people with approximate date (about 1783, circa 1850, between 1850-1850) or a generic location (Germany, England, California).
  3. Missing research: people without the date (dates in report are guesstimated by GenDetective) or people without any location for the event (born 15 Jan 1783, no country identified, information left blank)

Clicking on any single bar or link below the chart will display the names of the people who meet the selected criteria. For example: people with a full immigration date, or people with an approximate immigration date or people with an estimated immigration date. To get a list of people who have estimated immigration dates (maybe they disappeared between census years), click on the colored bar or link for people with partial immigration dates! Once you click on a colored bar, below the graph a list of the people who meet the criteria will appear. It is really is that easy, your research opportunities with a click of the mouse!

Below the bar chart, look to the left of the text that says “414 Direct Relatives”. Do you see the hyperlink “Print this list”? Anytime that you want a list of the people listed in the lower section of the screen, click this link and press print!
