vkn: kutoja we are here every Mon thru Fri. Would suggest you read the boards and post a query to the surnames boards

kutoja: Going to try an make a pot of collard greens for the first time wish me luck lol

karoshi: I hope it is for you guys too alt!

vkn: hmmmmm

alt: have you started a 'family tree' with a genealogy software package to 'organize' your findings kutoja

kutoja: I will post a query today Thank You all for all your help love & light No I will do that

alt: it is a must kutoja, if you want to resolve and document your findings

kutoja: do you recommend any particular genealogy software

karoshi: alt how often do you update your tribal pages?

alt: and please be patient, you aren't going to find all of the answers in a week, month, year, decade even.... some of us have been at it for better than 20+ years and we're still seeking answers to our questions

vkn: I was on your TP yesterday alt following your SLAUGHTER response

alt: karoshi. i update once a month... March update is due sometime this week.

kutoja: can someone post a link to alts Tribal Page

karoshi: Cool. I need to do mine. I've gotten lazy.


kutoja: Thanks

alt: URL for Art's Families & Other Folk

vkn: There you go karoshi

karoshi: Hmm vkn?

vkn: oops I meant kutoja sorry 'bout that karoshi karoshi

karoshi: Lol. No problem

alt: karoshi, I update with photos & other stuff thru the month, but I upload an updated GEDCOM file monthly.

karoshi: What do you use for your GEDCOM?

kutoja: what is gedcom ?

vkn: Well will talk with all tomorrow. I will be testing a new GEDCOM today following your pattern and procedure alt

alt: the GEDCOM feature of my Roots Magic software package karoshi

karoshi: Ok. I need to get Roots Magic. I used my ancestry account initially.

alt: A gedcom file file is what you create from your family tree research kutoja

vkn: Bye for now

Selma: kutoja..if you are just beginning I suggest you get a piece of paper and pencil and fill in an Ancestry chart..

kutoja: ok Thank You

alt: karoshi, I personally think it is better to have a 'database' that is stand alone and not associated with Ancestry or those other online Family Tree programs

kutoja: Thats what I will do

karoshi: That's what I've been told too alt. I just haven't made the switch yet.

kutoja: If anyone has a blank ancestry chart please email me Thanks Michael Stiggle

alt: you can always put your 'stuff' up on an online site karoshi and with an offline package you can better control what the public can see of your work. kutoja, just google blank genealogy forms

Selma: Have to run folks..have a great day..STAY WARM and stay near the air conditioner Bye

karoshi: By Selma

alt: laters

karoshi: I have my tp pages and ancestry. I'm kinda using the tp as my database.

alt: must be quittin time, folks are skedaddlin' outa here LOL

karoshi: Must be!!

alt: that's good karoshi and when you get a Roots Magic package you can download what you have on TP into that package for starters.... keeps you from re-inputting your data into Roots Magic

karoshi: Ok. I've been told to get it before. And I do have a lot of instances where the same person connects to many different people.

alt: that why I recommend only one (1) tree in a "universal" database.... the connections of many people to many family lines

karoshi: I understand that completely.

alt: the packages will assist you in separating out the families in any combinations that you may chose.

karoshi: Guess that will be my next project after I update tribal pages.

alt: similar to how TP allows you to color codes lines of Ancestry

karoshi: Oh cool! One more question before I go. Is the court house always the last stop for records?

alt: I have nine (9) major family ancestral lines color coded on TP for records that are generated for government use I would have to say yes .... court house & health dept.

karoshi: Ok. I'm at several dead ends.

alt: and don’t forget Newspapers

karoshi: I've looked at the newspapers too. Those are my favorites! Thanks for all the help!

alt: okay, gotta run y'all ... take care

karoshi: Have a good day! Stay warm.
