Stanczyk likes genealogy and Stanczyk loves technology. Hence why I had to go to RootsTech 2012. You are reading a blog article that I have created in ScribeFire 4.1 . Actually, I have been dabbling with ScribeFire, since I saw it mentioned by WordPress.
It gives me a greater control over my fonts — somthing I have been missing, without getting my hands dirty with CSS/Styles. I have resisted doing too much HTML coding of my blog — I just want to muse and not have to do a lot of bit-fiddling to get my thoughts down on … uh CRT glass (or whatever glass you have on your mobile device).
Besides fonts and font sizes, superscripts, subscripts, it also gives me a convenient table tool and it will also seek out related links for my article too (using Zemanata — see below) !

So I recommend adding this extension to your browser if you use Chrome. I have gone back forth. I write some in ScribeFire and perhaps finish the article in WordPress (or vice versa). ScribeFire and WordPress, both play well together and I get the best of both worlds. If you need these features, then get ScribeFire from the Chrome Store

Stanczyk is happy once again !
The folks at Ancestry.com fixed my GEDCOM Export. It was about 10-14 days, but at least the job got done and my ability to export my research is back to normal.
The timing of the infinitely spinning icon could not have been worse. I had just imported a great deal of photos and I continued to do so even with the export problem. But all is well that ends well. So I did one more export (and it worked) to get myself to a valid checkpoint of my work.
Whew! What a relief. I did not want to have to once again re-enter my multimedia. Nor was I previously aware that I would also have lost my valued contributors too. Who knows if their emails have changed since I invited them???
At any rate, thank you Ancestry.com for fixing my GEDCOM Export!
