"I have encountered much the same problem with several people. I just enter the parents on the marriage screen with the note that they never married. Often, the children were never adopted by later step parents, but the surname does not change with…"

"I would still be related to her children. They would be my half ancestors (is there such a thing). What I found interesting was that her son was blind as my son is. Another thing is that in Ancestry I found someone's family tree that had her…"

"Surely if the Mother is on the family tree line then any of her children, even with different unknown fathers, would still be family? And aren't we told to record everything significant. Carolyn"

"The more that I work with Legacy, the more questions that I have. One of my ancestors was going to marry someone but he died before she could. Would you still put him under spouse. They did have a son, but her second husband has him as his son. She…"

"Margi, When you open Legacy 8, you will see the icon for charting on your toolbar.  You don't need to open Legacy 7 for charting.  Hope this helps."

Margi Peoples commented on Geoff Rasmussen's group Legacy Family Tree fans
"Thank you for your help. I do have the new icon for 8, but I still have an old icon for Legacy Charting 7 plus the Icon for ver. 7. Do you still use the Charting 7?"

Sarah Coles commented on Geoff Rasmussen's group Legacy Family Tree fans
"Margi, You should have a blue circle with an "L" on it for your icon.  Do not use the old one for Legacy.  The new icon should be on your desktop."

Margi Peoples commented on Geoff Rasmussen's group Legacy Family Tree fans
"After much work (with the help of a co-worker), I was able to install ver.8. I noticed that from ver 7.0, I have an incon for Legacy Charting 7. Do I still use that or is there one for ver.8? What also made it hard for me was that I needed a new…"

Technology Tip: restoring old photographs

With today's technology, not much really surprises me anymore. However, as I am writing this, I am nearly stunned at what I am looking at.

I have a brittle, old photograph of my 3rd great-grandfather, David Brown (there I go again talking about my Browns...). Time has faded and cracked the photo. Many years ago I scanned/digitized the photo to preserve its current state. I really did not think there was much hope in ever restoring the photo to my…

Hi Geoff,

Great Webinar yesterday on the 1940 Cenus and also your book, "The Official Unofficial Guide to Legacy arrived just yesterday so I began reading that last night.  I am enjoying it thoroughly and love your sense of humor and little comments you make.  As advertised, it is not the run-of-the-mill manual that we all hate "reading."  You sure are a busy guy!  Keep up all the good work and as my grandfather used to say, "It's always a great day for genealogy but you have to make the time for it."

Good idea. I don't want to publish anything "official", just want to give non-LDS users some further understanding which your comments have accomplished.

Hey, Geoff, I got thinking about it some more, and if / when you re-publish my comments about Legacy & FamilySearch, you might want to add a disclaimer that I am not speaking officially for FamilySearch and/or the LDS Church. I would hope that's obvious, but I certainly don't want to over-step my bounds anywhere...

Thanks again for the invite to test Legacy FS. I'm looking forward to it!

Geoff,
Feel free to re-publish my comments as you feel is appropriate. (I don't know that all of it would make sense away from the context of the original comments.) You can especially add the part about "Please hurry with 7.5!" :)
By the way, is there any way to get included in the "special group of testers" that got to help with the final testing of 7.4? In case you can't tell, I'm chomping at the bit! :)
Thanks for a great product! --RayDean

Dear Mr, Rasmussen,
Glad to join your group and willing to help others of what I know of Legacy.
BUT I would appreciate help on how to load pictures into Legacy - I am going round in circles.........
You must be busy - kindly direct me to someone. After a couple emails I would like to phone and go over the step by steo instructions.
Adding pictures to my, Manitoulin Family Trees database is very imporation to me.

Many thanks,

Everybody has received this scam makemoneywith--on GenWise. We don't need this scam. I sent in a complaint by clicking on "report issues" you find at the bottom of the page. There's lots of information on the Internet about this scam. This is just one link:
http://www.prosperly.com/2009/make-money-posting-links-on-google-is-a-scam/

We don't need this nonsense on GenWise. Put in a complaint when you get a chance.

Hi Russ,

I see all my friends are getting this makemoneywith-google also. Who can we complain to? I do not want any soliciations like this on my page.

I'll try to get it done by the weekend, OK.

I am an avid fan of Legacy having used it for a number of years now. I'm based in Scotland and am impressed with the amount of UK content you have given your software. There are some things which people are commenting about at the moment, especially sync'ing. I would like to try to write a full article explaining this aspect as it really is relatively easy. Would you be interested in proofing it if I did so?
