Re: [genphoto] Need ideas for photo genealogy cd only oppsion you have at this time
- The big question is What Genealogical Program are you using? I certanly
hope that since you state that you have been doing this for 20 yrs that you
are like some other persons I know, and didn't buy a commercial program &
tried to do it on your own. Because if you did not use a gedcomable program
you are up the proverable creek without a paddle. If you are using a
commercial program then it should be no problem to GEDCOM the whole shebang
to someone by Disks or CD even by E_MAIL MAY THE SOURCE BE WITH YOU
