X is for {e}xcluding information in a potential problems report.


To get to the Potential Problems Report I go to My Toolbar > Report Menu > Other > Potential Problems.

The first tab, Records, allows you to choose what you want to search.  All records, records with previous errors along with new records, etc. and you can also check records with a certain tag# and tag all problems records with a certain tag#.  Tagging your records with potential problems is beneficial because it makes it easier to work with the records to make corrections.

 On the warnings tab you can select when Legacy will warn you of potential problems in you database.  You can adjust the warnings to fit your needs.

Under the problems tab you can select what problems you want to be notified of.

 The warnings und the standardization tab help keep your database consistent. 


Under the gaps tab you are able to adjust the gaps that you get a warning for a potential problem.

I have a note in Evernote in my Best Practices notebook that lists all of the database maintenance that I perform on my Legacy database.  I also have an individual note in my To Do notebook with a reminder set.  Once the task is completed I reset the reminder for the specified amount of time.

These time frames came from a LVUG Hangout done by Tessa Keough at Legacy Virtual Users Group on Google+

Above you can see my list of reminders and where the database maintenance actions are.  {Potential Problems report is due tomorrow.}  I try to do them on their due dates but I don't freak out if I am a few days late.  One the task is completed I will reset the reminder date for the desired amount of time.


Look out for letter Y next!

Stitching Update…Lots of pics

LHN Family Sampler (excuse my crooked house…not sure why it looks like that)American Flag Quilt Sampler by Rosewood Manor.  I love stitching on this; I did however run out of the Brethren Blue.  I decided to put this down for a little while and have picked up the family sampler again.A close up!HAED Natures Mourning.  I have not worked on this in a while.  I plan to stitch on LHN Family Sampler until Friday and then work on this next.Last but not least is a little freebie that I did before Christmas.

Family Sampler Update

I was hoping to get more done on this this past week but another trip to the ER on Wednesday night did not leave much time for stitching.  I was very dehydrated and my potassium was low and I found out that I have a UTI.  I was really surprised about the UTI because I did not have the normal symptoms.  The antibiotic has really been helping.  I was not feeling well and just laying on the couch but then I got dizzy and fell so Jason had to come home from work and take me to the ER.  Yesterday was the first that I really spent any time stitching but I did get a lot done. 
I switched to my HAED Nature’s Mourning for this week.  So far today I have gotten a lot done.  Hopefully this week I will stay healthy and want to cross stitch.
Enjoy your week!
Happy Stitching!!

How I Use Evernote for My Genealogy.

Today I did a Google+ hangout on air about Evernote for Genealogy.   Once I watched the video I saw that I was not a very good cameraman!

Hopefully this will clear up any questions you may have.





How I use Evernote for my genealogy.

I use Evernote to store everything including my genealogy research.
You want to use Evernote in a way that makes sense to you.  Tags, notebooks, no tags or no notebooks; do whatever works the best for you.
Notebooks (the blue box)
Notebooks are sorted alphabetically so if there are notebooks you want at the top of your list you can use ! or @ or ~ in front of your notebook title.  In my image, for example, I have my INBOX notebook with an ! in front to keep this notebook at the top of the list.  I use a ~ to keep my GENEALOGY notebook stacks together.  I have an ARCHIVE notebook and in front of that I put an x to keep it at the bottom of …
