You took the Legacy Family Tree cruise 10 weeks after we did.  I look forward to seeing your photos!  Not many of mine turned out well.

Excellent examples of being evidence based and recording everything you found.  FTM seems to be the most flexible program as far as inputting and publishing notes.

And how long did NASA have to design and test parts, establish and test systems, develop crew, and basically beta everything safely before they felt that they were ready to set a date.  Years....  No legislative requirement to launch as of.... a few months from now.  I think they are doing pretty darn well, with what they had to accomplish....

I'm very happy to see progress with this app! I did play with it a little by searching a local cemetery that has my family. I found that when scrolling through the names, the screen would darken and then jump backwards into an area I had already scrolled through. It seems to be worse when I tried to scroll quickly, although, it still happened when I was scrolling painfully slow. There's always a few tweaks that are needed with new apps. A work in progress!

Mocavo is working on handwriting text recognition and transcription - is this the Holy Grail of genealogy?  Maybe! http://www.geneamusings.com/2013/11/mocavo-has-been-working-on-handwriting.html

It's a dream....  From what I have seen, even fairly clear printed text in older books that are then  text-recced contain a fairly large percentage of total garbles.  Handwriting?

Introduction

I am a native San Diegan, a graduate of San Diego State University, a retired aerospace engineer, a genealogist and a family guy. 

Angel Linda and I love to travel to visit friends and relatives, to sightsee, to cruise or to do genealogy. Our travels have taken us all over the USA, to England and Scandinavia.
 
Did I mention that I do genealogy?  Just a bit...almost every day, every week, all year long.
