about my family which I could not answer and I came to the realization of how
little I really know about my family..They bought me a compac computer and a
family tree maker program,Version 6 in May as an early birthday present..and
here I am some 7 monyhs later and I am at a "Brick Wall". any help,
assistance or guidance will be greatly appreciated. Thanking one and all in
