« on: Thursday 06 August 20 13:03 BST (UK)  »
I have been using the above for a long time but i am discovering that some more modern programmes do not like to import old technology, I am thinking of going to a more modern version of storing my tree and info, pics etc on my computer. any thoughts on how i should proceed, I have my tree on Roots Magic (free version) if i go for their bells & whistle version will i be able to transfer reasonably easily my existing info, any thoughts and ideas welcome to an 83 yr old steam wizard with some electronic savvy.Or am i thinking of taking the wrong move ?. bodger

« on: Monday 01 June 20 07:46 BST (UK)  »
I was at that concert and a press photo appeared in a Manchester edition of a daily paper the next day
showing myself sat in the front row, i am a white male, crew cut hair and tugging my top lip with my left hand  , I did obtain a copy from their office in Manchester, cannot recall their name or location, but the office had a display window showing the latest pictures that they  had published. Our daughters have never seen the photo, i have tried myself on line to find it with no success, i wonder if anyone else could point me in the right direction to search.      Thank You, bodger

The only difference from my end is that last year i was Windows 7 "firefox" , this year i am Windows 10, Google, would this make a difference ?
