About Me

My name is Anne Mamiya. I have been researching my ancestors for the last 5 or so years. This started as a hobby and has grown into much more. I am becoming more interested in the study of genealogy and the more I learn, the more I want to know.

I am also interested in new technology that supports genealogy and research. I can’t imagine doing all this research without the tools that are now available to us and how much we can do at home before heading to a physical location for research.

My hope for this blog is to not only document my findings on my own ancestor research, but to share helpful tips and technology I discover. I am also finding that I need to keep an organized list of the resources I use and I might as well make that public for others to use as well.

The genealogy community is a great group and I am glad to be a part of it.

One thought on “About Me

  1. I watched your converting existing census information in Legacy to your custom works. Very nice.
    Census information in genealogy software has always been an almost impossible endeavor to me. My frustrations with The Master Genealogist, Ancestral Quest and Clooz are perfect examples of my brick walls. I even made a custom census program using Excel. That was so time consuming, it was a disaster.

    So, I have to ask you.
    What is your philosophy for inputting census info. into Legacy?
    What information do you enter where and how?
    Are the reports from this custom made or out of the Legacy box?
    Do you get what you want out of your reports?

    I hope I am not stepping on your toes asking your procedures and information.
    Please forgive me if I am.

    I thank you in advance for any particles of wisdom you could pass on to me.
    Don Versluys
