Busy afternoon yesterday!

The six computers that the Wednesday Family History Group use were (once again) out of order! No connection to the Internet. We had use of the four other computers but 7 of us turned up, not including me (Angie). Maybe we should phone the Library 9561 1110 half an hour before 2pm. 
Would you believe they are all working today!

The Family History Centre at Merriwa, 30, Hughie Edwards Drive ph: 9304 3488 is open Tuesday 10am-4pm, Wednesday 6.30pm-9.30pm and Thursday 10am-2pm. Worth a call just to make sure they are there.

Roots Magic

A Family Search web site.
What is RootsMagic?
RootsMagic is a Windows® based computer program you can use to record, organize, print and share genealogical information. It allows you to create a computerized family tree (known as a database or a family records data file) beginning with yourself and continuing back through your parents, grandparents, and as many generations back as you are able to find. This is separate from any other program (FamilySearch Family Tree, PAF, etc.) and can only be accessed by you (unless you share your information).
