Research Update

kst1969   March 9, 2011   Comments Off on Research Update

I haven’t been doing much research lately but I have been working on my photos and getting them organized.  I took the size of my photos directories from over 350GB to about 30GB!   I used the program Visipics to help me delete all of my duplicate photos.  I have also been organizing all of my other digital files and I have set most of my old files to be backed up to DVDs. 

For my genealogy files and my current documents and stuff, I am using the Dropbox service to automatically maintain a current backup on their servers.  By deleting all my duplicate photos and moving all my old documents and other files to my external drive and backing them up to DVD, I can now use the 50GB Dropbox account to keep current backups of all the files I am currently using! 

I am working on going through all of my old email files and getting the duplicates removed from them as well so that within a few weeks all of my good emails will be on my Google account as well as on my Dropbox account. 

When I finally get finished, I won’t have to worry about computer crashes loosing my stuff!   Two or three different computers in different locations would have to crash at the same time before I would loose stuff!!

I am getting back in the spirit of researching now though.  I reformatted my computer a couple of weeks ago in the midst of all my reorganizing of files and I now have all my genealogy software reinstalled and I am making use of Gensmarts to create a research plan! 

I hope to make a genealogy research trip over to Madison County before the end of the month so hopefully I will have lots of new information on my Keck, Stout, and Reynolds lines when I come back.

I also did a redesign of the blog theme and genealogy presentation.  Hope you like the Tiger Photo!   The photo is one of my photographs from the Little Rock Zoo in 2009.
