  • GedStar Pro Version 2.0 Released

GHCS Software has released V2.0 of its "GedStar Pro" application for PDA devices running the PalmOS operating system. GedStar Pro V2.0 is available as a free update for existing registered users of GedStar Pro V1.

GedStar Pro extracts almost all of the data directly from a PC-based genealogy program and formats it for quick and easy viewing on the user's handheld device. This design allows GedStar Pro to operate without the need to export a GEDCOM file, making it very easy to use. Currently supported genealogy programs includes Legacy Family Tree, and other popular genealogy programs.

"With V2.0 we have added a number of often asked-for features to the handheld program," says Doug Gordon, developer of the GedStar line of products. "This includes a more powerful name-search feature with Soundex support, several new lists of resources, a data export function, and even an "On-This-Day" feature that shows events that occurred on a particular day of the year."

Registered users of GedStar Pro V1 can download the Version 2.0 update by visiting:

  • February Is Black History Month

In February of each year, we celebrate Black History Month by reflecting on the contributions made to the world by those of African descent.

This tradition was started by Carter G. Woodson. Born in 1875, Woodson was a son of former slaves in New Canton, Virginia. Coming into the world just ten years after the ratification of the 13th amendment -- abolishing slavery -- he became a celebrated Black scholar and historian. Woodson founded an association for the study of black history and life in 1915, and 11 years later -- on February 12, 1926 -- he inaugurated the first Black history week.

Woodson decided on the second week of February to coincide with birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass, renowned men who made a huge impact on black history. Up to 1976, the second week in February was celebrated by African Americans.

During the U.S. Bicentennial Celebration in 1976, the special week was expanded into Black History Month and is now widely observed each year by Americans.

Carter G. Woodson died on April 3, 1950, leaving behind a great legacy.

TIPS FROM THE EXPERTS

  • Multiple Lines of Descent Report in Legacy 5.0 Deluxe

    The book report style called Multiple Lines of Descent  is similar to a register-style descendant narrative book but you can select two or more ends of lines to include in the report. When the report is generated, the first line is printed as a normal Descendant report would be. Then the next line is started on the next page, and if it intersects with the first line, a message is printed indicating where to look in the first line for the remainder of the descendant line. Here is a PDF file showing a sample report.

    The Multiple Lines of Descent Report is a feature of Legacy Family Tree 5.0 Deluxe Edition only and is not available in the Standard Edition. To purchase the deluxe edition, please point your browser at: www.LegacyFamilyTree.com/

  • Backing Up and Restoring Family Files

    The saddest tale heard at the Support Desk is, “My hard drive crashed and I never made a backup. How can I get my file back? I had thousands of names, years of hard work and a great deal of money and travel invested.” As you can see, there are some very good reasons for having a current backup “safety net.” All kinds of problems can occur:

    • The need to go back to an earlier file version because of a mistake made when deleting or merging records.
    • A user deletes a family file by mistake.
    • A computer virus or worm corrupts/destroys files.
    • Hard drive failures
    • Theft or loss of equipment
    • Fires, water damage, sudden power loss, power surges, brown outs....

A word to the wise is sufficient.

Tips and Tricks:

• Backing up and restoring is an excellent way of moving your family file to a second PC or laptop. Just backup on the first PC and restore on the second. It makes a perfect copy -- nothing lost! Just make certain the same version of Legacy is installed on both machines.
• Family file backups do not include multimedia (picture, sound and AVI files). These must be backed up separately by clicking File on the menu bar and selecting Backup Multimedia Files from the file menu. See http://www.legacyfamilytree.com/tipsBackups.asp for more information.
• You can view a video demonstration of backing up family files on our training CD 'Your 12-Step Checklist to Using Legacy Family Tree' for sale in our Online Store (please Click Here).

Backup Basics (Legacy 5.0)

If not already done, we recommend that you set your Legacy options to automatically prompt for backups each time you exit the program. Here’s how:

  1. Click Options on the menu bar and select Customize from the options menu.

  2. At the Customize screen, click on the Other tab.

  3. Next check mark the box to Automatically Prompt for Backup and then click the Save button.

Now each time you quit the Legacy program, you will see a message asking if you want to backup the family file(s) you had open. Just click the Backup button and the process will start. Here are the steps for Legacy 5.0:

When the Backup window appears, make the following changes:

  1. Save in = 3½ Floppy (A:) - Make certain a diskette is in the drive first. Optionally choose a tape, a second hard drive or zip drive for the backup.*

  2. File name = Enter a name - A file name can contain up to 255 characters, including spaces. It cannot contain the following characters:
    / : * ? " < > |

  3. Save as Type = Make no changes - Leave this as is.

  4. Click the Save button.

  5. If you have a previous backup file of the same name on the drive, a message box will ask you if you want to overwrite it. Click the Yes button.

  6. A message box will ask, “Would you like to Delete any existing files on the disks as we go?” Click the Yes button.

  7. If you have a large family file, the backup will be spanned over two or more diskettes. The program will ask you to insert as many diskettes as needed to complete the backup.

  8. After the Legacy program has shut down, remove the disk, tape or last diskette.

  9. You can also backup at any time while the program is running by clicking File on the menu bar, selecting Backup Family File from the file menu, and following Steps 1 through 6 above.

    * When backing up to a CD-RW, in most instances you will need to first backup to the hard drive and then use the software that came with your CD-RW drive to burn a copy to the CD.

Check Your Backup

If the above steps are followed, your backup should be good.

One of the most common problems with backups is that the user neglects to change the Save in location and backup is inadvertently created on the same drive where the family file resides. When the urgent need to restore the family file from the backup arrives, alas, there is no backup on the expected disk or other medium! This is an unrecoverable mistake if the hard drive has failed because both original family file and backup file are lost in the same catastrophe.

Another common user problem is that frequent backs are not made. Sometimes Technical Support must help a Legacy user restore a family file from a backup copy that is several months out of date. A great many changes and additions can be made within short time, so backup regularly.

You can search for a Legacy backup file on your hard drive by clicking the Start button on your computer Desktop and selecting Find / Files or Folders on the start menu (newer Windows versions use the word Search). The Find: All Files window will open. Please type *.zip in the Named: box, then change the Look in: box to My Computer and click the Find Now button. The computer will search itself for any files ending with .zip and create a list. Make note of where any backed up Legacy files exist and restore your backed up family file from the indicated location.

Restoring Your Family File from Your Backup

  1. Put the disk or tape containing the backup file in its drive.

  2. Click File on the menu bar and select Restore Family File from the file menu.

  3. If any family files are open, you will see a message box prompting you to close them. Click the OK button.

  4. When the Select a Backed up Family File to Restore window appears, make the following changes:

  1. Look in = Choose the floppy, tape, second hard drive or zip drive where the backup resides.

  2. The name of the backed up family file will appear in the large box. You can recognize it because it has a .zip extension. Click once on the filename to highlight it.

  3. File name = Should be the same as the filename in the large box described above.

  1. Click the Open button and the Restore Location window will appear.

  2. Check the drive in the small box at the bottom of the screen. It should be your hard drive (not the drive that the backup is on).

  3. The default or normal location for Legacy family files is the C:\Legacy\Data folder.

  4. Starting with the top folder (the drive) double-click on the folders in the large box until you come down to the subfolder where you keep your family files.

  5. Click the OK button.

  6. If you get message boxes warning that a family file or file ending with .FG already exist, click the OK buttons and proceed.

  7. Next a progress bar will move across your screen as the program restores your backed up family file. When done you will see a message box asking, “Would you like to Open the Restored Family File?” Click the Yes button.

Note, if you are restoring a family file from a backup spanned across multiple disks, the program needs to see the last disk first, then you will be prompted to insert disk one of the set.

OUR FAVORITE WEB SITES

  • Irish Freeholders' Records Database

Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) Freeholders' Records Database. PRONI's freeholders project entailed the digitization of approximately 5,500 sheets from pre-1840 Registers and Poll Books, and the provision of an index of names linked to the high-quality digitized images.

Freeholders' records are lists of people entitled to vote, or of people who voted, at elections. A freeholder was a man who owned his land outright (in fee) or who held it by lease which could be for one or more lives (for example, his own life or for the lives of other people named in the lease). From 1727 to 1793 only Protestants with a freehold worth at least 40 shillings a year were legally permitted to vote. Between 1793 and 1829 both Protestants and Catholics with 40 shilling freeholds could vote, but in 1829 the franchise level was increased to 10 pounds, so 40 shilling freeholders were no longer allowed to vote. This last measure increased the influence of landlords by effectively confining membership of Parliament to the propertied or monied classes.

Before the 1872 Ballot Act introduced the secret ballot, voters were required to stand up and declare publicly their electoral allegiance. Their fear of going against the landlords' wishes resulted in a substantial number of candidates returned being either landlords or their relations or supporters.
