This is something entirely different from Randy for Saturday Night Genealogy Fun!
Whatever genealogy fun you want to do — please spend an hour and do it! Then tell us about it in your own blog post, and leave a comment here which I will add to the Comments after moderation.
Okay, here's mine!
I recently was able to install the current version of Family Tree Maker (version 2019), after being mired in Reunion for the past couple of years after a hard drive crash. (Sorry, Reunion fans.) I decided to enter a lot of information that I've been holding aside because I didn't want to put it in Reunion. It was actually a lot of fun, and I spent more than an hour doing it! And I was able to share the updated family tree information with a cousin I had promised it to.
That doesn't really sound as though I did a lot, but I felt a real sense of accomplishment, because I have gotten so far behind on data entry. I don't know if I'll be able to talk myself into doing this on a regular basis, but it's a great start!
It's great to get new data entered in our software programs, isn't it? I love seeing the family units grow and give a fuller picture of their lives.ReplyDelete
Yes! And while I was entering data, I found a couple of gaps in information, so I had to look them up and enter them also. The more info, the more we know about them and the more "real" they become.Delete
Congratulations. What you should do is put aside an hour once a week to keep up the good work.ReplyDelete
I agree! Unfortunately, I'm not very good at following through on that. Oh, well, hope springs eteranl, right?Delete
Glad you got caught up on data entry! I'm falling behind while concentrating on writing up family history projects.ReplyDelete
Oh, but that's such an important thing to do also! And I know I won't do that part, because I so dislike writing.Delete
