Well I have changed my genealogy software again! I just can’t seem to stick to one lately. I know those who read my blog are really surprised by this!
I am going back to Family Tree Maker 2012 for my genealogy data and I have changed my genealogy research methods. I am going to use Family Tree Maker for my genealogy data and to research using my Ancestry.com subscription. However, instead of trying to add in all my photos and personal anecdote information, I am going to make some scrapbooks of my photos using a digital scrapbooking software.
I am making good progress in getting everything transferred to FTM2012 and getting my photos sorted!
Since I have switched software I am switching how I do my website again. I am keeping the blog but I am not going to have my full genealogy data on my website. By not maintaining the huge amount of data and the time-consuming tasks of creating the pages and uploading them, I will be able to get more research done and to add more blog posts about that research. Also, not to be taken lightly, I think I will once again regain the fun in my genealogy research! Genealogy should be fun and by going to back to spending my available time on finding new things and solving new puzzles, I will regain my fun!
Also, the change gets me back to the Paperless Genealogist project I wanted to work on. I have to get my genealogy organized and the way for that to happen for me is to get rid of the piles and piles of paper that I have accumulated over the years! I am getting back to that and getting slowly but surely organized!
More to come soon,
