The Life From The Roots blog topics have changed several times since I began this blog. In 2009, with my first posts, I wrote only about the family history I had been working on for 20 years. Many ancestors lived in New England so it was easy to visit gravesites and towns where they lived. I shared many photo. Years later, I was into visiting gardens, historical homes, churches, libraries that had genealogical collections, historical societies, war memorials, in general, anything to do with history. I enjoy posting autographs and photos of famous people I met or saw.

My New England roots are in Connecticut and Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire). Other areas include New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada.

Please check out the labels on the right side for topics. Below the labels and pageviews is a listing of my top nine posts, according to Google. Four of them pertain to Lowell, MA, three are memorials, one about a surname and one about a discovery I made. These posts change often because they are based on what people are reading.

Monday Madness -- Asking for Help#1

I have so many difficulties when it comes to computer related issues.  Nothing has been easy.  The computer is ok, it is doing the little fun things pertaining to blogs.  For example, it took an hour to try to get the March birthdays report posted, but it still isn't right.  I did it with a version of FTM and then RM4. After all that time, I've decided to beg for help.  This isn't my first attempt with the below project, I tried it last month too.  The report is now saved in pdf format on the desktop and in my documents folder.  But there was no way to get it on to the blog.

So, what you are seeing is a printed copy which I scanned.  There must be an easier way.

I am hoping somebody takes pity on a much older person, and offers help.  I hate to warn you, but if I get help, I may use this tactic again in the future!  Like really soon.  I've already made a new label for Instructions.
In the past, one person offered help without me asking.  So I would like to publically  thank Apple.  There are others that I asked; they are Dru, Gini and Cheryl.  Last thing, I plan on doing this report every month, and possibly for will be so tired of seeing it.  Thank you for any help.
