July 2014 Updates
Well another month has passed. I have gotten some research done this past month but not as much as I hoped. I always seem to think I can get more done than I actually seem to accomplish. I am trying to become better at planning my time but that is an ongoing struggle for me!
My surface pro that I got a few weeks ago is helping me a lot. It is good to always have all my computer stuff with me whereever I might be. I don’t have to worry if it is on my home computer or my tablet or my phone – now it is just on my surface! Some of the stuff is also on my phone due to cloud sharing but everything I have been using is on my computer. It doesn’t have the 4G capabilities that my tablet had but then again I can use my phone for a wifi connection if I need one. But with everything on my computer from when I last used it I don’t have to worry about something not being synced because this is the same computer I was using the last time I used a computer!
A few months ago I switched back to Family Tree Maker 2014 and although I have reviewed other software again for a weekend or so I am finding that it works best for me and I am sticking to it for the ability to merge my findings from Ancestry directly into my tree without spending all my time doing data entry! Even with the programs having shared events, it is still easier to do a merge from Ancestry Family Trees and then sync with my Family Tree Program.
I have done some work on my website this past month. I finished up the pages for my great-grandparents. Not to say that I won’t be adding more stuff to their pages later on as I get the rest of the photos and documents added to their information in family tree maker but at least I have a page for them.
During August, I am going to try to get a page created for all 16 of my 2nd Great-Grandparents. I am also going to get in the August Book of Me Prompts as well as catching up on at least 4 of the previous Book of Me posts. I will be lucky to get all this done so that is my goal for the month!
