Genealogy Trails 2015

httpToday I begin working on the family history, photos, and genealogy.  My goald for 2015 is to get all my scrapbooking done (Good luck with that!) and a big hit on the family history and genealogy.

Let me take a moment to reflect on photographs.  There is just too much disorganization!  I use the Legacy program so the photos have to be located on the computer so they can be accessed.  I also store all my photos in Aperture.  So, somehow, I have to find a way to keep track of what pictures are where.  I finally hit on a tagging solution today.  In aperture, I tag them with a yellow tag that means "this picture is in the legacy file and attached to the person there."  Then I tag then in the Legacy folder with a yellow tag that means “this picture is in aperture.”

Pretty simple, right?

Well, it would be if I had done this for the past 4 years!  So now I get to go through everything and double-check it.  Oh well, at least I will do this work-flow from now on!  Moral of the story - find an organization work-flow early on and stick to it!

I have found some cool pictures for the family as well as lots of information.  Been working in a hap-hazard fashion with the holidays but am now back at it in a strong way.  Here are some of the interesting picutres I have found:

Ha!  Thought you would like that!

One of the best things is the resemblance between family members.  Here are pictures of my Great-Grandmother, Anna Haessig, her son (my grandfather), Louis Betler, his daughter (my mom), Joan Carol Betler, and my son, Brian Bailey.  Guess the Haessig gene’s skipped my generation!
