So Far Behind

Well it has been a slow week for everything. I have been trying to learn RootsMagic. I'm confident enough, and like the program enough to delete FTM. Of course I haven't gotten much else done in the past 2 weeks though. I must change that!
I just have one thing I have to figure out. About sources, of course. I have several entries of each source in my source list. Like 1860 Census. Click on each and it will show the citation. I would have thought that the Source List would list each census(or other) entry once, then offer the citations by name. I think it's messed up but I can't figure out how to fix it. I can't even figure out if it needs fixing. Now that's bad.
Well, I am no longer feeling my way slowly through the program. I'll figure it all out eventually.
