Saturday Night Genealogy Fun on Monday -- How Many Trees Are In Your Database??

I was catching up on some blog reading and saw that Randy Seaver recently posted  Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- How Many Trees in Your Database? I thought I would check my Legacy Family Tree Database. To do this go to View and then select Trees.  This will bring up the Tree Finder window.  {The image below shows the Tree Finder window.} A few surprises here.  First, I have 52 total trees.  The largest has 3,191 people and the smallest have 1 person and there are 42 of them.  What!?  {The trees with only one person may have come from a GEDCOM import I did a long time ago.} I see some pruning of some bushes in my future.  Second, there are five trees with the Rutan surname.  I believe these are trees that I started when I was researching a brick wall and trying to see if there were any connections. {I will keep never know when these will come in handy.} There are a few things you can do in this window to make clean up easier.  I am going to select all of the tree

I'm still here!

Hello everyone! I'm sorry I have been absent for a little while.  We went on vacation to Florida for 11 days. Some pictures of my happy place! Then I had emergency surgery to remove my gallbladder.  With some time to recover I have finally found some time for a post. I'm hoping to get back to genealogy and some regular posts. I recently got Legacy 9 so I will be posting about that and some new features that I am loving.
