About Season 2 of Predecessor Pro

Hi. I hope that you are all having a wonderful Independence Day celebration today.

I wanted to write you a quick paragraph about Season 2 of Predecessor Pro. I had intended for it to start on a formal schedule this month. However, due to life getting in the way with a new house, changes at work, and medical issues, I will be unable to provide you with a constant stream of history and genealogy content for the foreseeable future.  I do have a few posts that I intend to put up from time to time, but I cannot guarantee a timeframe for when those will be able to be completed.

I hope that you can understand. Predecessor Pro will still provide you with interesting facts and information, it just may take me longer to get it to you. Thank you for your time.

I would like to discuss the handwritten letter, by writing it down for you.

Part 2 on Adding Video Games to your Genealogical Research.  Adding digital hobbies, like video games, to your Genealogy can be a challenge. With physical hobbies, you have tangible objects that have been left by your ancestors. Afghan blankets, baseball bats and pieces of furniture all leave behind things that you can pick up and examine with your hands. Even books and written materials have the physical presence of being ink or graphite on paper. However, the challenge with video games and other digital assets is that they only exist in the virtual world. If you wanted to preserve that information, this is how you would do that. Part 2 of 2.

Byte-Size Your Genealogy

Byte-Size Your Genealogy

Trying to complete a family history is, quite frankly, an impossible task. You will never finish it. There is too much there and you are just one person. However, if you pick out one task, and then break that down into even smaller tasks, you will be surprised at how quickly that can add up over time. This is what I would call Byte Size Genealogy.
