RE: [TexasCzechs] Re: Corey Barton
I recently bought a program called Family Tree Maker. Although I have not had a chance to read the BOOK that came with, I am muddling through and getting the hang of it. I have to say that I am pretty slow at it though, mostly because it is hard to find the time to sit down and work with it. I, however, like it a lot. When I get enough entered and get to the point of sharing, it is nice to know I can get some help.

I have found that compiling information is very time consuming, however,To unsubscribe from this group, send an email to:
Ancestry.com offers free software that makes data collection easy. I
used to enter the information manually (over 500 pages!) until I found
this software. Now, it takes a few seconds and I have entered several
generations and hundreds of pages of information in the blink of an eye.
To make the sharing of information easier, try to save your information
in GEDCOM format. There are several programs available that do this, but
Ancestry.com is free. When someone asks for information of a particular
surname, you simply e-mail the gedcom file, and it can be merged, or
combined with what information you already have.
By using this software, I was able to increase my family database from
500 individuals to over 1,300 in a matter of days. The information age
is truly a blessing, the sharing of genealogical information is much
faster and much easier than even a few years ago.
If there are any questions regarding gedcom files, please feel free to
