alt: okay karoshi8, I know the surnames, but not too familiar with the those names in those counties.

HistoryBuff: I'm financial with AAGHS and NGS. I'm also financial with ASAALH.

karoshi8: No, I don't daviss.

daviss: I was just going to see if there were anyone in group that is searching Texas looking in all avenues

karoshi8: I suppose I'm just getting tired of typing the same info over and over again. Tree to tree.

alt: karoshi8, that's why I recommend having 1 database with a good genealogy software program.... the software will "sort out" the connecting families and you only have to enter a person's data 1 time.

karoshi8: What do you use?

alt: I use Roots Magic, the full version, karoshi8 and I have over 23,000 individual in the database. and the software keeps the family "inter-connections" in line for me.

karoshi8: I'll have to get that. Thanks!

alt: it is particularly good in the situations of 2nd & 3rd marriages when there are connecting lines between those family lines old family vs new family.

Selma: 23,000..thats a whole lot of folks alt.

alt: step-children & half-siblings, etc.

daviss: I probably shoud upgrade my RootsMagic to the full version

alt: yeah Selma, that's what happens when you input the siblings & their children to the families of your 'direct' ancestors.. then when you add the spouses and the parents of the spouses for these family ties, the databse just "explodes" LOL

daviss: yep lol

HistoryBuff: lol

alt: but you will be amazed at the early family connections you uncover from 100-150-200 years ago.

daviss: alt thank you.. I really need to get more active with inputing my folks I really admire you

HistoryBuff: Same here.

alt: one of those folks you need to input just might lead you to mariah daviss, LOL

daviss: just may be alt I better run now..Alt what time is the game in your state?

alt: 7:45 PM daviss

daviss: ok I will put on my U of A shirt and grab a bowl of chips Go WildCats!!
