Re: Monitor

I'm balking at one screen and now I have to select two?!? Just kidding. I really appreciate your feedback. Real life experience is very helpful. I'm sure I'd end up happy with a 24" screen in the long run. I did use a 22" Dell on my last job, and I didn't like it as much as my 17" for...

Re: Monitor

I forgot to mention. I have a microphone but no webcam (little desire for one). I've never hosted a Zoom meeting though I've attended some. Now, that's low tech.

Monitor

This section reads “off-topic”, so here goes. I need to buy a new computer monitor to replace my old, 17” NEC which has served me well. I’m low tech and can use some advice. My main issue is accepting change from the squarer screen (4:3 aspect ratio) to a widescreen (16:9 aspect ratio). I know most ...

Re: Shared Ancestors

I stressed the surname line due to the subjective factor - we identify with that line, having that surname - even though it's only one of 64 (62) surnames we have at that generation.

Again, in my case, that's also the duplicate couple.

Re: Shared Ancestors

I think I made a math error. It should be 30, not 16 4th great-grandparents on the paternal side. Only one couple is shared. The principle is the same. I was asking about "expected" not "actual" inheritance. By the way, In my case, they are paternal cousins so the surname is shar...

Shared Ancestors

You have 64 4th great-grandparents, including 32 from your paternal side and 32 from your maternal side. If your paternal grandparents were 3rd cousins to each other then, starting at your 4th great-grandparents, half of your 32 paternal 4th great-grandparents are shared, resulting in only 16 unique...

Re: Help Interpreting Birth Certificate For Ignazia Campagna

The left side records the birth and the right side records the baptism which occurred on September 10th in the parish of Trabia.

The record continues on the next page which you didn't post.
