Computerizing Family HistoryA few days ago I had a phone call from a friend. A mutual friend of ours had two family history books that she wanted entered into the computer. Actually she wanted them put into http://www.new.familysearch.org/, which she and I both have access to. I agreed to help.

So far, in 3 days I have 215 records computerized. This is a somewhat pitiful rate, but I have spent time consulting the census and vital record sites to fill-in missing details. Tomorrow I may finish the first book. The second book is in German, and may be beyond my skills. I took a German course over 40 years ago, and not much of it remains. We shall see.
