This that and the other

There is so little I can think of to say about our Christmas ornaments, I thought I'd skip the Advent Calendar for today and instead keep up the blogging momentum with a quick update on my genealogy activities.
  • I've had some really good correspondence with other researchers on various branches of my tree lately. As a result I have quite a bit of new data to add.
  • The DNA kit from 23andMe has shipped. Now I have to wait for it to make it's way across the sea. I wonder how long it will take? 
  • I am seriously considering changing genealogy software, which is not a move I take lightly. I love my current software, but unfortunately, I have noticed a glitch that I can't live with. It's not likely to be corrected any time soon as the developer is concentrating on the next version. I know I will have to do a big clean-up and lots of checking in the new software, which will probably be TMG. It's frustrating when I have so much momentum up in my research right now, but it has to be done.

  1. Shelley, I would encourage you to go with TMG. Although I am a longtime user I have only scratched the surface with this package. I am amazed at what some of the users in the Sydney TMG users group have done with it. There is so much scope to customise etc.
    Additionally the data transfer to TNG is a breeze.

    Hooroo, Geniaus

  2. Geniaus: Thanks for the recommendation.

    Since posting I asked the developer of my current software to have a look at my file, and he is, so fingers crossed something can be done to correct the problems I'm seeing.
