Question: I don't know much about computers. I use them mostly for emailing, shopping, downloading pics off of my digital camera and burning the on dvd's, and downloading some songs. My oldest daughter uses them for school papers, downloading music, chatting, and burning cd's, my 2nd daughter downloads music, burns cd's, and plays games and webkins, my youngest daughter does webkins and some kind of barbie innernet toy, and my husband mostly surfs and plays solitaire. I don't want an expensive computer, but I do want one that would work for all of us. The las 3 we had just quite...took forever to get on, shut off in the middle of using, all kinds of stuff. Any suggestions on a brand, what all we need to have on it, and what we're doing wrong to all of the "dead ones" we have????

I would suggest getting an IMac from Apple. It has amazing speed, never crashes and you never get a virus. They go for about $1099 and up. It is quality!

You don't seem to use the computer for much really, only general stuff, and with the rate you go through computers, I'd suggest you get only a middle of the range one at max. If you used the computer for online gaming, thats the geeky ones not barbie btw, or you downloaded loads and loads of songs or movies I'd suggest something bigger and more expensive, but I feel from your description that a basic model would suffice. I don't know what you are doing wrong with your computers, all I can suggest is that you keep your computer up to date with its update downloads, get some decent computer security software (firewalls and antivirus), and make sure you physically look after your computer, ie, no drinks around it, turn it off properely and all the other basics I am sure you already do. Maybe your computers arent actually dead, get a tech to look at them for you, computers are modular, that means that parts are easy to change and it would prob save you a couple of hundred pounds to fix it instead of buying a new one, also it would give you a better idea as to what you are maybe doing wrong with them.

Hey Buttermilk, You are very lucky to receive such a gift! Many of us spend years looking for what was give to you. Use it wisely. Organize the files by family surname. If you can afford to get some computer software, check the list below, get some to help organize. Scan all of the documents into the computer, and store them by surname. Enter all the information into your entry first. Your parents, your birth date, location, time, place, etc. Then attach in the place that the software lets you, all the scanned documents about you. Now go to your Mother, or your Father's entry. Fill in all the information about Him (going with your father). Attach all the scanned files. You have his parents, enter them. And their data. And you do this until you exhause the data, information, pictures, certificates, stories, you have. In Genealogy, every answer (parent found), leads to 2 more questions (who were their 2 parents). So, you see, your work will never be done. But what a legacy to leave to your kids - fully computerized Ancestry. To continue the check, get more certificates, check GENFORUM, check Family Search, check Ellis Island, trace each person from a known person, don't skip over any one because you think you know the parents. Prove the ancestors closest to you, then get the parents of that ancestor. Here are some useful sites. When you get stuck, try Cindi's list, which is a list of lists of lists of places to check - fantastic. Also, post questions here.

If whoever did thr original research was competent, he/she will have cited sources - wills, tax records, census records, obituaries, cemetery records, newspaper articles that are not obituaries ("Baptist minister runs off to Argentina with Choir director, building fund" - South Fork Herald, Aug 01, 1894) ("Paige Turner marries Don Breaks in garden ceremony" - Springville Times, 6/12/1912) How you check is to look up those sources and make sure the researcher copied them right; the marriage really was 1912, not 1921, it was June 12, not Dec 6, the minister did run off to Argentina, not Brazil, and he did scrawl "So long, suckers" across the church door with a tar brush. If there are no sources, then you have a long, tough row to hoe. You can check general things with the US, UK or Canadian census, if you can get access to it. It will show people living together who are probably related. (Usually. Once in a while a family adopts a stranger, or a cousin, and the census enumerator lumps the child in with the rest of the children. Sometimes a "wife" is really a widowed sister-in-law and her three kids.) You can look up birth, death and marriage records, obituaries, cemetery records. Some are on-line; many are not. If the original research has a citation for every fact (rare, but I've seen it, in professional journals, as an example of how to do it 100% correctly), you can probably just believe it. If the original research has no citations and mentions more than one of the following, it is probably less than trustworthy: 1) Three brothers came to the US; one went south, one west, one north. 2) A Cherokee Princess. 3) The younger son of a noble family. 4) A man who was exiled for poaching the king's game. (Why would anyone parboil the Royal Scrabble set?) If it is somewhere in between, you'll have to decide how much time and effort you want to put into checking it. Genealogy isn't particularly difficult, compared to rocket science or brain surgery, so if you got a "B" on at least one history term paper when you were in high school (no matter how long ago) you can do it, but it does take time. You could check just one generation, as a test. Start at either end - the oldest generation or the youngest. Usually the further back you go the less reliable a family history becomes; the mists of time and the fact not all of our ancestors could read and write obscure many a family tree. Either way you will get a feel for the accuracy of the original research.
