I have spent part of the morning playing on the new RootsMagic version 5. What I see I like a lot. It appears that a few items (some citations) did not make the conversion and will need to be updated with the new software. I really like the new timeline, the new screen for adding media and citations, the whole thing seems easier to read. I can't wait to start working on the research log. It is about time someone incorporated one for use with our software! I am looking forward to the RootsMagic webinar What's New In RootsMagic 5 at 5 pm MST to see all the latest bells and whistles.
This weekend has been very enlightening. I located some additional relatives on Gary's side of the tree thanks to a few Wisconsin sites. I found quite a few clues at the Wisconsin Historical Society website at http://www.wisconsinhistory.org/genealogy/. The information is free but they do charge for a fee of $15 per copy for birth, death and marriage certificates. I need to check and see just how much the state and counties charge. The other site that I use quite a bit in Wisconsin for Gary's Polish and Slavic relatives is the Archdiocese of Milwaukee Catholic Cemeteries website at http://www.cemeteries.org/genealogy.asp. This site offers age and date of death, last known address, marital status, date of burial, Funeral home, and allows you to search nearby burials.
