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.
