Thanks so much for your help. This has really given me fits. I am so cautious on so many computer things--this was a fine time to be brave and take a chance. I will definitely steer clear of FTW from now on.

I have another question and don't know if you know--you seem very knowledgeable. In the past, when I have downloaded the GEDCOMS that this cousin sends (from her FTM program) into my PAF program, I get lots of errors. Most of them begin one of two ways: WARNING: Custom event_____(various words in blank) added; edit this event to add missing fields. and the other one is: ERROR __(then numbers,) GED, line with number: RIN__: Unexpected tag'_____Individual Record.

I suspect that I am missing various things from her notes. Is there a way to retrieve these missing items or am I just out of luck? I haven't been able to find anything on my PAF program that tells me what any of these errors are.
Thanks for your help,
Michelle
