Mac crashing ... not a good thing.

Myrt is working on the calendar.

Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Of course. Not to worry.

I am really struggling to understand this program.  It seems to me it is a lot like CLOOZ; a way to keep all your documentation listed in one place.  You still have to put all of the information into your genealogy software program.  So what is the purpose of putting it in both places?  I put all the information in my program already and now, trying to use Evidentia, I find myself repeating the same thing!  Am I missing something here??

Mastering Gen. Proof  - 
 
I just wanted to share a spreadsheet system that I found a few years ago - back when it was free!    http://www.censustools.com  I put the Research Log at the front of every name I search in my research binder.  Yes, at this time, I still have paper files, but then that is another subject all-together!!!

I purchased it many years ago and have added spreadsheets as I have needed them.  He does a great job and very helpful if you have a question.

I'm sorry this is so late, for some reason, every time I would try to post, it changed everything into gobble-gook!  I had to wait for my son to return home and fix it!  But it's all good and here is my homework link:  http://nounturnedstone.blogspot.com/2014/03/mastering-genealogical-proof-study.html

OMG!  One of my grandchildren was standing behind a few minutes ago and saw her name with a leaf.  She wanted to touch the shaky leaf!  I told her "absolutely not!  No touching leaves!!!  That's what got me in trouble for the last two days."  After she left, I checked the hint and it was exactly what I thought it was - Texas Birth Index record.  

You have great ideas, Russ and I really appreciate you taking the time to blog about FTM 2014.

I've been a user of FTM forever, but there is always something more to learn.  So, add me to the list of people who would be happy to attend!
Office Hours  Since I started the  +Cousin Russ Genealogy Community, on Google Plus, I have had an idea of holding, informal "Office Hours", where I would host a Hangout On Air and talk about how to use Family Tree Maker. A...

I'll try to schedule these office hours in the +Cousin Russ Genealogy Community so that others may attend.

Thank you,

I think you need to start with your end goal in mind. If you want information decide what fits for you and disregard the rest. From you comments I think you are at the stage of Genealogy confliction. You want to do a better job to be more organized and a more complete researcher. I found the more I learned confused me until I DID IT. I took one concept, applied it to MY working style and it accomplished my goal... more complete citations, analysis and something if asked I could possibly submit for an article. So jump in and JUST DO IT!
 I also couldn't locate your post on listening to Monday's with Myrt...Here is my fix.
If you have access to a laptop and a second monitor that is the easiest to watch and comment.

Getting To Know You  - 
 
I have just started using Legacy.  I've been an FTM user for years but thought I would check out another program.  I have been a family tree webinar viewer for the past several months so have heard a lot about Legacy.

It is always helpful to get a window into how others work with their genealogy program. While we don't all do it the same way, we can always get great tips and things to try out. +Geoff Rasmussen - the syllabus and presentation were a good walk through.

And we have had two deaths in a nine month period. My mother, Shirley passed away on November 20, 2013. & Jackie`s adoptive father, Edward F. Collins passed away recently, on June 20, 2014. Both died of cancer. My mother colon cancer, and Edward, had brain stem cancer. I thought you like to put this information in your genealogy time line.
