1) On First Look at Legacy Family Tree Version 8.0 - Post 11: Migration Mapping Chart (posted 18 December 2013):
a. Geolover asked: "The timeline mapping is a nice feature. Can the pins be moved to the right places? In your first screenshot with pins it looks like all of them are a bit south of actual locations."
b. Geoff answered: "As you zoom in, the pins appear to be in the correct places. Legacy does attempt to automatically resolve the locations so there's not much that you manually have to do."
c. bgwiehle commented: "It would be an interesting option if the places were linked with lines (ideally the most likely or actual routes taken) and if the intervals in the animation had some kind of count showing length of residence at each location."
My comment: My observation is that the round pin head is centered on the correct place, and the pin point is not. I always expect the pin point to be on the location. bgwiehle's suggestion is interesting - some sort of popup showing a path (even if it's a straight line) and the length of time in one place would be useful.
2) On "What good is it to access a newspaper image on Ancestry.com, and not be able to see it after my subscription runs out?" (posted 16 December 2013):
a. Rorey Cathcart noted: "While I realize this a response to an Ancestry.com specific question it applies to all subscription services. I learned the hard way to always 'capture' an image of the resource, i.e. census, article, vitals. This way you'll be able to access it whether your subscription lapses or the site is down or you just don't have an internet connection that day.
"Having a desktop program to which you can attach those images is helpful for organization but not essential. The biggest problems are space and naming conventions so you can find the image again. The first is easily solved with a large external hard drive, relatively cheap these days. The second is a little more tricky because it is often more personalized. If you use a photo program such as Windows Photo Gallery with the ability to add tags, it makes the naming less complicated and finding the images again much easier via tags for surname, location, etc."
