Selma: Not me
alt: hehehehehehe @ Selma
vkn: Well Selma you and alt might consider classing the rest of we
trisha: Haven't done any research.... Wayyyy out of the loop Lol vkn
vkn: Alt does your research application take you automatically to source sites? Trish do you use the Reunion application
alt: vkn & Selma... poster on the FPOC AfriGeneas Forum.... said she couldn't find anything on her great-grandfather & mother.... about a 5 min search on FamilySearch and I found their marriage record, death certificates and census records from 1900-1930. If you mean my genealogy software package vkn, yes it does
vkn: OK so does mine
trisha: No Vkn, actually haven,t used any app in awhile. I have often thought about getting it. Very few things geared for the mac
alt: I was just pointing out that folks ask for help and say they've looked and you can see they really haven't done anything
vkn: People be singing duh duh duh
alt: vkn, Roots Magic is the software that FamilySearch uses and that program 'hooks' into the FamilySearch collections.
vkn: Guess it is hard to know where to begin. Do we need a how to begin webinar Alt what response did you get from the person you helped?
alt: I would think that there are so many "how-to-begin" webinar's/blogs, etc. that it might be easier to just point folks to those that already exist (URL's)
trisha: Thanks...gonna be one of those day :smile:
vkn: okies. How interactive are they?
alt: not sure who you are referring to vkn, but most will give a courtesy thanks and be done with it.
