Topics I've Started

Notation Convention

08 November 2018 - 11:50 AM


I searched this site to see if my question has been addressed before, but could not find what I was looking for.

While making REPORTS of LISTS, MILITARY, I discovered all of my entries concerning military affiliation were anything but consistent.


example: for Confederate Army; CSA, Confederate Army 

: INF, Infantry, INFTY

: Navy, NAVY, US NAVY,

: Tenn Calv, TENN CAV, 


I hope you get the picture! I found some 'approved' abbreviations on the site linked below:




But they have United States Navy as USN; United States Marine Corp. as USMC, but nothing for United States Army.

Infantry is Inf., nothing for Cavalry.


Any sources for conventions??



Photo Organizer...Wish I hadn't done that..

New computer...Thousands of images..PhotoOrganizer! Great idea? Wrong.


PhotoOrganizer sucked up all images on my harddrive and sorted them by YEAR - MONTH - DATE - LOCATION.


Removed all media from my nice organized RootsMagic folders that I made for each family (4). Nothing left but red x's. Has taken a week to relocate and still some hidden somewhere.



Disappointed today

I put RootsMagic7 Togo on a stick and took the road to the Library. Went to the computer lab desk and asked for computer time. Thoughts in my head of accessing Ancestry and other sources and brick-walls crashing as RM vacuumed valuable nuggets and deposited them in the tree.


I hinted at what I was expecting to the lady and she stopped and said 'you cannot load a program on our hard-drives.' I explained how Togo works, but the malleable had hardened and cooled and the opinion was set.


My question: How do others handle this and how do you explain it to them as to coax their agree-ability? 

2 NAME CLEAN problems

Domenick Bellino married cousin, Antonette Bellino. Name clean hates this! How to reconcile?


Joseph Jenkins Jr. DDS wants to be changed to Dds

Ralph Jenkins DDS has the same problem.





Adding Stories

29 January 2018 - 03:44 PM

When I create a BOOK, I cannot find the way to include Word documents. For instance, Creating a book of Indiana Family I include several reports but for a particular individual, a Civil War gunboat commander for instance, with letters home and medical reports, etc..


My thought is to print the book, then print the Word documents and collate them in, but the page number feature and indexing would not be correct.


Any workaround or features unknown to me?
