Yes Marsha, I know what you mean...if you have been at this for any length
of time...the sheer volume of data to transfer is really a deterent. Alas,
I don't have FTM either...I bought Generations...but am using PAF 4.0, free
from the LDS people. It may not be fancy...but it is very easy to use. I
use Office, Word 97 document files...(it takes almost forever to load the
file selection...way too many files!!!)...for everything.
You mention John Langston files...anything you care to share??? Did you
see my John & Leona (TAYLOR) LANGSTON posting a couple of weeks ago? If
you have anything that remotely appears to be him...I'm interested.
