The Editor's Corner

The Newsletter frequency has been converted to 'semi annual' this year, for 2014 and the future,

with an updated masthead above, and we will try to produce 'spring' and 'fall' issues next year ,

and for the foreseeable future, as long as there is enough new McAninch material to publish.

Although we know that our genealogy is never really done, the early McAninch immigrant lines

have been traced back to early Pennsylvania (and eastern Canada) (and all Ulster Scots, from

northern Ireland), and there is a lot of genealogy work to do on many of my other family lines.

Computer System and Software Changes in 2014

Two new Windows 8.1 computers this year (one for me, and one for my wife's business), and

wrangling lots of new software installations, have seriously changed the production 'tool chain'

used to write and publish this Newsletter. Both of our old Windows XP systems are history

(one hard-drive boot sector failure, and the other has old software that could not be updated),

and we are now running new LibreOffice database, word-processing, and spreadsheet software,

along with the old Dreamweaver MX website software installed in a 'compatibility box' mode.

Fortunately, we did not lose any data (USB drives, off-site backup, Google Drive in the cloud),

And, just to add to the complexity of everything this year, my genealogy database program

TMG (The Master Genealogist) has been discontinued, frozen at its current TMG 9.04 version.

Most of us TMG users are currently planning to continue using it as long as possible, while

keeping a 'weather eye' open for possible alternatives in the near future.
