Lori, the videos are still there. You're right. They probably blocked the videos from work.
I know how you feel about group projects. When I started the extractions on the Calabria Exchage
I thought I got in over my head. I wished I had someone to help me. Then I realized I would probably just end up doing most of the work on my own anyway and between the forum, Surname Datebase
, my one name site Angilletta.info
and the Gente
website, I never have time for much.
Along the way though I managed to pick up a few "shortcuts" and I only go tot he FHC once a week now. I spend only one day updating the surname database (usually first thing on Saturday or Sunday morning unless I have more than 50 to enter) and I make sure I find the time to do the things I need to do around here with my family. It took a lot of balancing though. I had to stop spending so much time on other people's websites too. I still help out here and there when someone needs me but by this point everyone knows (or should more or less know) what they are doing so they don't need me as much. The fact that I was off for two months helped too. I was able to get back on track again. Using my own records that I extracted for Ardore I was able to locate several of my own ancestors and that made it worth it.
Now stay tuned because there is something else coming.....
