I am very grateful to those of you who responded so quickly to my
query re Gedcom. I have asked a couple people who wanted to know what
program I use (which happens to be FTW 7.0,) to reply to the List so
others could take advantage of their experience/expertice. I would
like to include this response from "PITTYPAT" whose good answers and
advice we have seen many times before.
