Both printers now available to club PCs

Printing is one of the more common problems in our club rooms so I made a minor change. The small black HP printer remains the default for all five PCs. But they can now also print to the big white Canon printer which we use mainly as a copier. If you have trouble with one, please try the other.

HOW TO TRACE YOUR FAMILY TREE

Henry Louis Gates Jr. (You may remember the White House “Beergate” incident) is kicking off Season 2 of Finding your Roots. The show starts on Tuesday, Sept. 23, PBS. time not known. The previews look very interesting with such people as Sally Fields, Ken Burns, Anderson Cooper, Ben Affleck, Tina Fey, Alan Dershowitz and a number of others.

A very different show from Who Do You . . . It should be a great way to get yourself back into researching.
