Last Saturday, April 9th, was to be a meeting of the Genealogy Computing Group at the library. I even made sure The Breeze had a notice. And I was a no show. My apologies to all. Last week was a bit brutal, if that is an excuse. It started with an unscheduled funeral (aren’t they all?) of my brother-in-law, and I was to give a eulogy. Which changed my business trip plans to Houston, at least the starting day. Then there were days in Houston and more days in Baton Rouge. I finally got home late Friday evening. And plumb forgot the Saturday meeting. I trust that it took place anyway and that members made it. Lately, I have been working on the extraction of family events from a deceased cousin’s sets of videos, stored on DVD disks. You can’t just copy files onto a computer as the file format is incompatible. So I have been having fun exploiting a freeware tool called “Handbrake”, which does the trick. If I remember, it would be a neat topic for our next gathering. Also, we should test out the new overhead book scanner that the AFHS library has acquired.
