AARGHHH!! Rebooted, apparently without saving changes in profile!

+5 votes
Worked on a profile for a total of about 10 hours, At least two wives, only one with sources - but she had several previous names, so LNAB uncertain, children in censuses with different surnames. Had extensive notes regarding problems and future research possibilities.

I would have sworn I saved changes and left the edit screen before doing a computer reboot. But I guess I didn't. Now, I'm just swearing!

I suppose I can recreate the data in about half the time, but somebody should whack me on the head and tell me to be more careful!

Well, you asked for the head whack, and Steve obliged. Can’t get any better than this!

Feel for you, Jim. Been there, done that.
What others have said ... I save early and save often ... I'll add one source and hit save and then move on for more sources.  Who knows when the power is going to go off?  Grin ...

You should really be more careful. yes

I reckon this is one of them mistakes you only do 1 time

Well as requested. devil

As a tip I always endeavor to save at-least every 20 minutes on editing of a profile. I never know when I gonna have a long cat nap on the keyboard.

Thanks for Best Answer Pip, However wasn't really an answer but I couldn't resist with the Gibbs smack since NCIS is one of my favorite TV Shows.
Hahaha! It was the best video answer. You made me, and my wife, laugh out loud.
Thanks, Steve, I needed that! Save early, and save often!
