I am so proud of myself. It, evidently, is never too late to teach an old dog new tricks.Anyone who has had computer troubles knows what I am talking about. I had to buy a new computer recently which had Windows 11. And, my genealogy program Family Tree Maker was not compatible!!!!
I have spent the last 35 years gathering documents to build our family trees. I had tons of personal family stories, too. And, all of a sudden I couldn't even access my program. I did download the files as they told me to but no personal notes were there, most of the females were missing. I had so little left of what I had gathered over the years. I was devastated.
But... ta da... last Friday I spent 4 1/2 hours on the phone with a Family Tree Maker tech guy and I now have almost everything restored. I'll make a call tomorrow to see if we can retrieve the rest of it. First time ever to use an online tech!It was so fascinating watching him control the actions on my computer. The cursor running around here and there, clicking on this and that and I just sat there watching.
So thankful I now have all my years of hard work back again. I love technology.. and the people who know how to help you use it.
