At last a really good public domain family history
program that will produce Personal Histories, Pedigree Charts and Family
Groupings or Descendant listings. The program can keep track of about
500 files on up to ten data disks and is able to cope with up to two
thousand relatives! Vital statistics can be entered for any person in
free format so that you can record, for Instance, birthplace and
marriage details or additional notes. Children and parents can be
inserted at any time and the program keeps track of all related files
enabling Pedigree charts to be produced. Good documentation is included
and there are example files provided by the author. The author uses the
system himself and has twenty two generations of his family and
seventeen generations of his wife's family stored away on disk! Try it,
if you are into family histories. Even if you can only go back a couple
of generations, it might inspire you to delve even further!
