Watch on your TV!

This made me curious. If you've purchased a TV over the last few years, you may have noticed that you can connect all sorts of goodies to them, so I decided to check whether I could hook up a wireless laptop to a TV. Sure enough! Here's my husband, Brian, watching on one of our TVs!

It took me about 30 seconds to hook it up -- just connected a cable to the laptop and the TV and clicked the "input" button on my remote until appeared. That was it! If you're not sure how, here are some easy-to-follow instructions:
How to use a TV as a monitor for a laptop

So now you can watch free, genealogical videos on your TV whenever you want!"

***This is super! So much better than squinting at the little monitor version! Yeah!!! - cbh***
