I haven’t been posting as much as I wanted to lately, things started to catch up with me I guess. However for the remainder of 2011 and the start of 2012 I have some exciting things happening.
I took the plunge last week and purchased The Next Generation (TNG) and uploaded/installed it onto Walking with Ancestors. This means I am in the process of moving my tree from Tribal Pages to this domain. I learned a lot while installing it as it was the first time I used FTP (file transfer protocol) for anything other than deleting unnecessary files. I plan to write my own little ‘how to’ in the near future. Transferring to TNG hasn’t been plain sailing as the GEDCOM from Tribal Pages did something a little screwy and missed out dates of birth, deaths and marriages from many of my relatives so now I’m adding them as I go along one branch at a time. It’s time consuming and tedious (if I’m being honest).
I’ve also taken on another challenge and volunteered to help with Family Tree Forum’s Places of Worship project. I’ve received a lot of help from the folks on the forum and they are fabulous. It’s easy for me to help them out with a 6 year old who loves Churches, Chapels and Graveyards.
So I may well be missing in action for a while but please don’t forget about me.. My family tree can now be viewed here. Now, back to work…. I have at least 100 families to add.
Chow for now.
