Tuesday's Tip - Remove Text Formatting When Copying-and-Pasting - Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter

Today's tip reflects what genealogists do frequently - cut, paste and save after scouring the Internet for anything that will advance their family history research.  These actions also bring formating that you don't want or your computer program doesn't recognize.  I read how to Remove Text Formatting When Copying-and-Pasting - Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter and thought some Root Cellar blog readers may find it helpful.  Commenters on Dick's article also suggested "Paste Special-Unformatted Text" or "Keep Text Only" in some Office programs.

Based on another article I read last year on Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter, I started using Notepad to cleanse content before posting it on the Sacramento mailing list on Rootsweb.  The pesky question marks magically disappeared!

Dick has a free and premium newsletter.  Take a look.
