We are babysitting at Blaine's house today। I am writing this entry using Safari on Blaine's iMac. When we get home I will try to add a photo of me using Personal Ancestry Writer II, which is a free genealogy program for the Mac from http://lanopalera.net It seems like a very good program. I wish it used more of the computer screen instead of just 25% of it. You can bring up secondary windows, so there is plenty of screen to view the main window as well as a secondary window at the same time. Later today I plan to try running the free Personal Ancestral File 5।2 on Windows 7 at Andrew's house. I have heard that it won't run on Windows 7 but I don't believe it. PAF makes very few demands on Windows. I will let you know what I find out.
