I know you are in the process of trying to get a process worked out, but when
someone has time I would like to know is the purpose of this pedigree chart
form: to put it there for others to fill out? I can't seem to get a handle on
the meaning or purose of this page; what it is used for. I don't understand the
"mail-merge form" what that means.

I have now created my pedigree chart mail-merge form, but not the template or
output pages needed to make it work.
I have put the chart on this page, so that you can see it
If the submit button is clicked the "You've attempted to access a page which
does not exist" page comes up, which is not surprising as I have not uploaded
the page that the submit button attempts to access
because the _derived etc. page is the one that makes Front Page extensions
work (or not!)
The problem I am having, at the moment, is that, despite looking through the
HTML codes for this page I cannot find any reference to this "derived" file
so that I can delete it and replace it with the Rootsweb information that I
will need.
Can anybody please tell me where it is?

1) You will not be using Front Page Extensions. The MailMerge CGI script
is used instead.

2) The submit button accesses the template file, which tells the script
what to do with the FORM INPUT.

3) Delete every thing between <.FORM ACTION= and the TABLE tag that
begins your pedigree form.

4) Replace the above with

<.form action="/cgi-bin/mailmerge.cgi/~alwyn/template.tmp"
method="POST" enctype=" application/x-www-form-urlencoded">

5) The address (path) to your output page goes in the template file
referenced in the FORM ACTION tag.
