Today we would like to salute HM Royal Marines in their 350th year.

In 2014 the Corps of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines celebrate their 350th anniversary.  To commemorate this date, Royal Marines Commandos ski,'d, sailed, cycled, canoed and ran 6656km (circa 4136 miles). The aim was to encapsulate the Commando spirit and Corps values in a significant physical and mental challenge.


Today, we'd also like to salute

One of the hottest topics hitting the genealogy circuit for the last few days has been the idea of doing a complete "Do Over".  If other researchers are like me, the amount of information that I gleaned from my first documents decades ago was far from complete.  It can be difficult to go back, find the documents, review them, and update an existing file. I am told that 'Clooz' offers users an indexed and easily searched repository 
As an extra bonus, for Legacy users who also use Clooz, a do-over is a far less labor intensive process.  
Every document that has been processed in Clooz can be transferred into Legacy, into all of the proper fields, tc.,virtually with one click per document.   

So if I join the "Do-Over" (which I really need to do, but have no time), I will start with a clean new Legacy file and then re-examine every document image or text file to be sure I have captured everything that could possibly help in the future.  Then, document by document, I will build my "Do-Over" file with virtually no actual typed data input required in Legacy itself.  If the Legacy marketers would think about it, this capability could be a huge boost for users of other family tree programs looking for a new home.
