Well, we had a wonderful Christmas. All of the children and grandchildren were home for Christmas day. I had a 2-week break from the Family History Center, but I am back again today. A surprise was on New Year's Day, when my brother Lloyd showed up with an LCD monitor. He had switched to a 19 inch model, and gave me his nearly new 17 inch model. He also helped me as I installed a new 160 GB hard drive and installed my software on it. It took most of the day. But it solved my connectivity problem. I can now use dial-up Internet access without crashing Windows. Yahoo! We visited my mother and Aunt Vi on December 29th. I was able to copy William John Hatherley's funeral program. And they provided me with other Ing family information. Yesterday and today I did some more research on Will's Hatherley ancestry in Devon, England.
