Revisiting Speed and Balding - Blog comment by lkessler - 8 Apr 2018

Barry: You said: "for the handful of weak matches for whom we have traced a MRCA, the generational difference has usually been larger than had been predicted by the model". I would expect that is because the one MRCA you identified is one of many MRCA's that you and your match have. Neither of you has ...

Some Rogue Program on GenSoftReviews - Blog entry by lkessler - 1 Apr 2018

I’m not sure exactly how it happened, but a genealogy program named appeared on GenSoftReviews this morning: I’ve never heard of this program before. Have you? The program even had two reviews, one good one, and one not so good one. Overall, the two ratings ...

Where is Genealogy Software Headed? - Blog entry by lkessler - 25 Mar 2018

This was the topic of a recent Dick Eastman article. The article is from Dick’s plus edition, so you need to subscribe to see it in full and the comments.

Day 4 – #RootsTech –The Final Day (Sob!) - Blog entry by lkessler - 3 Mar 2018

Saturday is the most difficult day to have a #NotAtRootsTech day for me, because all of the family is home and I have to excuse myself upstairs to the office and mostly ignore them. But let’s continue. First I tried to catch up on the #RootsTech twitter feeds and blogs which I found impossible to ...

Day 3 – #RootsTech – #NotAtRootsTech – #Genchat - Blog entry by lkessler - 2 Mar 2018

Friday. Caught up on my Twitter feed from last night. One tweet from Nicole Dyer led me to her blog post about Diana’s classes on Source Citations and Getting Organized. They made the presentation slides available so I took a look and also downloaded their great handouts from the RootsTech App. ...
