Online room schedule reminder

SignUp GeniusPatrick is emailing the printable room schedule for us, but only once a week. He sent the coming week’s schedule yesterday. A couple of members have since volunteered to monitor. You can always find the online calendar by going to the club website and clicking on the link at the top of the right-hand column. Or you can click here to go directly to SignUp Genius and add that page to your bookmarks or favorites. The online schedule always has the most up-to-date information.

Browser survey results

BrowsersAbout a third (55) of our members responded to our little survey on web browsers. Thanks for taking the time.

The results are not surprising though I expected Firefox to be second:

  • 36% – Internet Explorer;
  • 27% – Chrome;
  • 16% – Firefox;
  • 15% – Safari;
  •  5% – None or more than one;
  •  0% – Opera.

So Internet Explorer is still in the lead though not used by a majority. I think we’ll leave well enough alone with the browsers on the lab computers.

Which web browser do you usually use?

BrowsersOnce upon a time most PCs were desktops running Windows, and most people used Internet Explorer. Now we have laptops, tablets, and smart phones, with Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Safari. Internet Explorer has been knocked off its perch.

Which browser do you usually use? Please click here to answer a one-question survey, to help the Board decide how best to set up the lab computers.

There’s a German Research webinar next week.

Legacyfamilytree.com/ has announced a FREE webinar next Wednesday, the 11th. The speaker is James M. Beidler and as a frequent listener to many Legacy webinars I am sure that this episode will not disappoint anyone who is searching for those elusive Germanic relatives.  Having just returned from the Landeskirchliches Archiv in Schwerin, Germany I hope to find more websites without all the traveling involved.  If you have never listened to any webinar before and are unsure of how it works, send me an email at: the.thorntons@comcast.net or phone me at 638-7024.  I’ll be happy to talk with you about it.
