Thanks to Howard Ford for hosting this List.
I, too, am a user who has been thru all versions of FO, including most DOS
and Windows versions. I use FO 5.0. have not yet downloaded FO 5a free
upgrade. My CASEANC.HTM web page ((see my signature) was generated by FO,
then modified a little by me.
A specific area that I think might benefit users would be a listing and
volunteers for any user defined Custom Reports for Family Origins. I
suspect this is an area left unexplored by most users. At this time, I have
not defined any Custom Reports, but have considered generatiing one.
Perhaps E-mail on the subject should use as a Subject: Custom Reports.
Another suggested Subject would be the Parsons Technology Web Pages:
<http://www.parsonstech.com> for FO information. I will try to share any
significant stuff to this List for those unable to access the web page.
