Look what we found today!!


Meg...the chocolate lab...was driving me nuts the other day when we were outside. There is a hole with a screen window covering it in the foundation of our house and she kept going over to it and carrying on...I thought she was NUTS! Then today Jason went to take the dogs out and something caught his eye...a kitten (the white and brown 0ne) was sitting by the screen. So he calls me outside and tells me to leave Meg in the house...what the heck. He tells me to go over to the screen and get my damn kitten! Whe I went over there were two there....one of the dark ones and the white one. So...he takes the screen away and of course they ran away to hide. He goes in the house and comes out with cat food and milk! He sits the stuff by the hole and we wait...about ten minuets or so...mommy kitty comes and eats and wants us to pet her. Then the babies come out one by one. Jason says I hope that is all there are...at this point there were two and then we saw another dark one...so there are three...hopefully that is all. They were out there playing most of the afternoon and all I saw was three of them. So now I need kitty names. I think we will probably try to get rid of one or two of them...Jason really likes the white and brown one. We have not been able to get close enough to them to pet them yet. Hunter is on vacation with his dad so I cannot wait until he gets home and sees them!

The Great Genealogy Shape Up of 2018!

For most of 2017, I spent my genealogy time cleaning up my database in Legacy Family Tree.  I'm still working on cleaning up messes from when I first started my family tree.  For 2018, I plan to continue cleaning up my database.  I would also like to finish adding all Find A Grave information to my database as well.  
Find A Grave is a great place to find leads to research.  Legacy makes it very easy to find everyone in your database who do not have Find A Grave memorials.  

Click the drop-down arrow on the Find A Grave icon and it gives you the following options:



I selected create a list of people without a Find A Grave Memorial and I got a nice LONG list of people.  From this list, I have been able to find more ancestors to research and add to my database.
My other goal for 2018 is to find the people in my database who do not have a source {yes, I said without a source.  Gasp!} Legacy also makes it very easy to find these people.  You want to click on Search {in the image of the…

Goodbye Evernote, Hello OneNote

What?  I'm leaving Evernote behind!
As most of you know I have been a huge Evernote supporter from the beginning and I have had a paid membership from the beginning {until October 1st}.There has been a lot of talk about Evernote not lasting much longer because they have been making a lot of changes and letting people go.That got me thinking about what I would do if they did cease to exist.I started looking at all of my options and the best option, for me, is OneNote.I already have it on my computer and it is free.I can use OneNote on my desktop, laptop, phone, and table all for free.I can still use tags {a bit different than what I am use to but it works and I am finding that I really don't need that many tags}.I can still search for things and actually find what I am looking for.I can still clip stuff from the web using the OneNote clipper.I'm currently working on moving notes from Evernote to OneNote.It can be a bit tedious but the process has forced me to look at my note…
