A Little Work

I updated my RootsMagic from version 4 to 6.  I haven't really had a chance, really haven't felt up to going over it all at once to see the differences.  I have been putting my 4 files together into one big one.  I had gotten 3 of them imported using RM4.  As I imported each one I would do the merging so that it would be a smaller job than if I left them to do when all the files were together.  I got RM6 right before doing the last file so I worked in it.  I tried to get it to do a duplicate search merge, and a pop-up briefly says I have 120 possible duplicates and then an empty Merge Duplicate Records box comes up.  I'm sure I've done something wrong.  I saw somewhere that there are learning videos online, so I will have to find them.  I did try the Search FamilySearch.  Works even for dummies!  Awesome feature!

I work on WikiTree as much as I can, though lately that is not much.  I try to get a dozen or so individuals on and then go back and add sources, photos and notes to them.  In the process I find mistakes and can make notes for each person of additional sources I need to find.  It's really a great way of going over old material and correcting mistakes.





November 2018 Will Be The 100th Anniversary of WWI

This year, in November, we will celebrate the 100th anniversary of World War I., though, celebrate is not really the word I think of when...
