My Husband's Family



These families settled in Northern Indiana (Pulaski, Marshall, Miami and Fulton Counties) during the mid 1800's. Most started in New England and came through Ohio on the way.

The Wunder family came to Colorado by way of Iowa.

Software that I have found extremely useful

- DeskPin Pin Window to top - Free! No Limitations! DeskPins can be used to make any application topmost, that is, to keep it above all other windows. Just grab a pin from the DeskPins icon in the system notification area (a.k.a. taskbar tray) and click on any window. This functionality is identical to the "Always on Top" setting found in some programs. With DeskPins you can add this feature to any program! If you need to see something under the "pinned" window, you can easily drag it out of the way.

- FastStone Capture - Screen Capture.
This link is to a Free version. Upgrades after this version require a payment but this one does a fantastic job of capturing Full Web pages, Parts of Pages, Images, screen shots and snippets of information from not only the web but any screen on your computer. It will save files in a variety of formats including Jpg. You can easily add captions or other annotations to your document.
For more recent versions FastStone Software 

- Transcript - Makes it easier to transcribe data from electronic sources such as a photo of an obituary or scanned image of a County History, The top part of the screen displays the image and just below it is a basic word processor window that allows you to type what you see in the image. It will save the transcribed file or you can copy and paste the data into your genealogy program. Saves a lot of neck strain. This is a Free download for individuals but the designer does accept donations.

- FotoAlbum 6 Digital Image Organizer.
The first time you install this program it gives you a chance to register the free version or upgrade to a paid version. You will receive the Registration Key in an email even for the Free Version which works just fine for me. You can sort, display, and organize your image files. It will even read and write ITPC codes that become imbedded data to identify or add keywords to your images. Never again forget where an image came from. This software has more features than any other Free photo organization software I have tried before.
