Have you had issues with your software, I have, I used RootsMagic up to V7 then I started getting issues, freezing and continually sending messages about errors back to the vendor. On talking to S & N and by experimentation I find that if one edits a record in V7 then loads V6 the edit shows up. Now here's my question
 
If I use V6 and upgrade step by step to V7 rather than the V7 that I downloaded will I avoid the problems I've been having with V7?
 
I tried using Legacy 7 but found it a very steep learning curve.
 
I having been trying out Family Historian impressed but find very user unfriendly.
 
So am tempted to return to RootsMagic - At least I can talk with Bruce Buzbee and S & N.
 
I'd welcome your views. 
 
Of course it could be my SAMSUNG I've other problems, mostly since I upgraded from WIN7 to WIN10 but will post them in a separate mail

John, RM6 and RM7 use the same file format, so they each just open the same file (they don't do any "conversion").  I would try uninstalling RM7, then download and reinstall the current RM7 from our website.  It should be more stable than RM6.

DearREADERS, YAY! Our oft-requested and long-awaited GenTools Study Group begins Wednesday. Somehow we managed to squeeze in 9 sessions before RootsTech 2016. We'll probably have some follow-on discussions based on our visits with innovators while at that annual conference.

MONDAYS WITH MYRT
Spotted this slightly Germanic surname on my blog and like anything you go look at in detail the facts crumble in your fingers and you wish you had left alone.

I had Ronald Edgar Coggan SHUTTER married Helena Emily Sarah LAWES married 14 Apr 1931 

I found his birth at Chard and baptism 6 May 1896 Crewkerne Somerset with the surname SHUTLER 

I also found on Find My Past his death at Weymouth and subsequent burial 2 Mar 1973 West Lulworth 

and that's where the mystery begins I found Helena's death 1964 Weymouth but when I looked at a transcript of West Lulworth burials http://www.eastlulworth.org.uk/burials_1921_1991.html no burials are recorded for this or any similar surname and no burials in 1973

regards John

i've nothing to add to what Billy and Audrey have said (in they appear to know far more than I on the subject)
DearREADERS, Ol' Myrt here is going to need help understanding this record collection from the UK Poll Books and Electoral Registers, specifically the entry for my step-mother's probable 2nd-great grandfather. It's in a printed book, now scanned and available at Ancestry.com.

More of these type of records are being added to the websites. It is important to understand the record and why it was made if you want to make good use of the information it contains. +Audrey Collins gives a great explanation of voters lists. We still have voters lists but as not everyone registers and you can opt out of the publicly available register they may be less useful in the future.
In many ways we are much more privacy aware than our ancestors were, maybe because we are also more aware of the problems caused by identity theft.
