Last week at the Family History Center, scanning microfilms took most of my time. Unfortunately, the Minolta and Dell equipment seemed to be working at cross purposes. After about 30 scans the computer would need to be rebooted. This happened three times, while I had a line-up of people waiting to have their microfilms scanned. I think their patience was starting to wear thin towards the end. Today again, I had trouble with the film scanner. It has been exciting to see the new partnerships announced by It should attract additional people to the Family History Centers. It has been as busy week. The townhouse next door to Evelyn and Ed caught fire, and their unit received extensive smoke damage. They hope to be able to move into a different unit this weekend. Rob's car needed engine work, so yesterday I drove to his house (about an hour and a half away), and helped him to return the rental car and pick up his car. Earlier in the day Judy and I planted our potatoes.
