Publishing that book

From: d rogers

Re: [DearMYRTLE] Don't use WordPerfect or Word exclusively

Robert Ragan sent out a newsletter recently about writing your family history. His on-line tutorial fits in with your message here & is very good information, I think, especially for anyone new to doing this on-line or on the computer.

Thanks for pointing out Robert's step-by-step directions (with screen shots) for:

-- find a part of your pedigree online and downloading a GEDCOM file

-- downloading the PAF Personal Ancestral File program

-- importing the GEDCOM file into your PAF database

-- creating a book using PAF

I'll send a copy of this to Robert to let him know how highly we think of his work!
Happy family tree climbing!
