We sold our House!!! Which is great. But I didn’t realize how much genealogy stuff I had accumulated until I started boxing it up to move. Wow! And I have some big decisions to make. So here is the deal.
We have decided that, at least for now, we are not going to get internet or cable at our house in the woods. Currently my office houses the business office, the homeschool, personal office, and genealogy stuff. I am moving the business office and homeschool to the little house we own right next to our donut shop in town which does have internet. We built a small office at our house in the woods and I planned to move my genealogy stuff there and decorate it the way I want for Family History. But that will mean keeping my current research on my laptop so I can access the internet when I am in town. I know many people still do this – they don’t have internet at home so they use the library – but I haven’t had to research this way since dial up days. Some days I think maybe I should just keep all of my genealogy stuff in town.
The other thing that must be done but which frustrates me into giving up every time I work with it is that I must re-install family tree maker on my laptop and sync with ancestry so I can work with my research at home. My tree is so large and has so much media that it locks up my computer every time I try to sync so I may have to, heaven forbid, start over – or lose the pictures which took me months to upload.
I am looking forward to having more time to work on genealogy after the move and I am open to suggestions and advice during this transition.
