How to Copy/Paste text

As promised here is a link to a short column describing several ways to copy/paste text from one place (such as an Ancestry message board) to another place (such as notes in your ancestor's file of your genealogy program.

From last fall's article we read "Because of this delightfully useful COPY/PASTE facility, YOU CAN EVEN copy notes from one individual to another individual's notes in your genealogy program. This is particularly useful when it comes to a census extraction, which should be cross-posted to notes for each member of the family enumerated in the original census record. You won't have to type the info for the spouse and each child. WHAT A TIME SAVER!"

For detailed directions see:

Happy family tree climbing!
