Sep 29 progress report

This week was just a lot of sitting and getting used to being out of bed in a recliner again. So, we had lots of time to chisel away at the email goals, but as quickly as I could get an email handled and archived, another new email replaced it, and I would up statistically as accomplishing nothing! I just moved behind another week on my goals! But I do have to agree that what we did get done was a nothing but phenomenal!

NOTE–This is just a report on the work we are doing behind the scenes. It will not become public until the end of the month if all goes well.

Software Updates

We have updated the website software for the family tree to the latest version, 10.3. This includes a several mods that were updated as well, and all mods were reset. Among the updates of the modifications were:

  1. Headstone photo mod
  2. Family Indicators mod
  3. Photo/Document form mod
  4. Life Dates mod

The family group worksheet entry system was also updated. It has not been used by our users since the reinstall, so it may have had problems. Hopefully these have been fixed and our users will find it helpful.

The software allows us to concentrate on data input and not programming, so we are thankful for all the efforts that have gone into fixing this version and the upgrades to the mods!

If we can conquer our email problem, we hope to revisit our directory system and upgrade it next. But only God knows if we can keep up!
