To My Alabamakinchaser Genealogy Office on the web.
March 2005 - I have decided since I am redoing my web pages that I have been trying to move from AOL, after 8 years on AOL that the office needed a face lift too. I wish my own office looked this neat. LOL It has been a job trying to redo over 100 pages and adding some more.
I use to use Netscape composer but found not all browsers are compatible with it. After some looking around and trying several different programs I finally settled on Webpage Maker see my links page coming soon. Right now the link will take you to their web site.I find it an easy program to use. There are some draw backs that I would like to do but over all it is the best program out there for the money. I use to use html to make a page but since 2003 my Fibromyalgia Syndrome and Fibro Frog seems to have taken that power from me. If you want to know more about Fibromyalgia Syndrome go to my Gentle Hugs web site.I have been doing genealogy for 30+ years and have quite a lot data on some lines. Of course there is a brick wall for several lines too. I have made some break throughs that I am quite proud of.
In 1999 my husband of 39 yrs 2dys passed away. I put up genealogy for a while. Then I moved from Nebraska to Alabama and have not had the room to put out all my files. I hope to go through them and put them all on CD-ROMS. Isn't computing a boom to genealogy? Think of all the trees we will save and the room in the filing system! When I started, we had to put everything in pencil, so we could erase until documented.
Now speaking of documentation, I have a lot of documents information not entered into the computer at this time. I have been trying to correct this. When I first started on the computer my husband was worried about the space all this was taking up! Come to find out, it wasn't the text files taking up all the space. Oh well, it keeps me busy now. Now that I had to retire.
I use RootsMagic put out by the same people who put out Family Origins several years ago. FO was my first genealogy program. I like these two programs much better then the rest on the market and I have tried most of them.
I have tried not to put up any living people on my pages. If you find anyone that is there and living. Please let me know and I will remove them immediately!
I am so glad you stopped by!
When ever you see 'Home' on any of my pages the link will bring you back here.
I have several pages and site for you to visit.
This will take you to my Library where you will find some stories and genealogy helps. I have writen some of the stories and some are from family members. The genealogy helps are written by Sandy Gorin, who gave me permission to use them.
May 7th 2005 - I have been so busy with this site. I now have 116 surnames up, 20 pages of stories and genealogy helps, a site map page, links page. That makes an average of 5 to 6 links at least per page. If you click on a link and get this (click here) then I have missed a link. Please let me know so I can correct it.
