Found a few relatives in 1910 or 1920 USA census in a link posted to a new
FTM discussion list. "Here is a site that is free (for about a year). To
access the census click on Heritage Quest Online. You can download the
actual census page."
New ADSL modem purchased June 25 and new router are faster but lost some of
the 2500 messages that piled up when I had no Internet service at all. "Just
plug it in" turned into an UNPLANNED reformat of the C drive on the main
computer to get the new modem working after nearly two weeks of experiments.
Other than brief holidays, I've hardly ever missed reading daily messages
about genealogy software since 1992 on Fidonet and 1995 on Internet.
The main FTM TECH mailing list has been off completely since May 22.
Frequent participants are having problems posting to some of the RootsWeb
mailing lists this week so the overall volume in my inbox is down except for
There is a new Acrobat 6 for PDF files (haven't tried it myself) and

Advice to computer genealogists:
Learn to backup up family data and restore files on a different computer to
be prepared for the day that a hard drive fails or requires an UNPLANNED
reformat (see above.) If you are satisfied to collect names and details,
almost any genealogy software will do. If you plan to print reports and
charts, enter the data in the same program used for printouts. File
transfers are not getting any easier and some genealogy programs are
incomplete without multiple utilities. -- Elizabeth
