AYWalton: I am still combing through 1940 looking for my grandparents and my dad. they have not surfaced yet.
Daviss: Lol I was but I was trying to walk through a process for someone new to chat.. I had actually forgot about Tues chat lol
AYWalton: I deleted 580 pages off my hard drive though, since I am now using Ancestry. those Archives.com photos piled up fast! lol, that was over 2 GB of space.
vkn: I bet they did AYW
Daviss: lol AYWalton I need to do that also..I also need to get one of those hard drives
AYWalton: the portable ones? They are handy.

AYWalton: I have to move some video files over. Once I have edited them and uploaded them, I can move them off my hard drive.
vkn: or find a free cloud AYW and Daviss
