What a relief it is to know that I do not have to worry about my PAF 5.2 program crashing when I reach 100,000 records. I was in a panic about splitting my files before I reached this number. Now I can relax knowing that there is not a problem.

I like having a single file for this reason. My wife's ancestors lived in Orange Co., NC for more than 250 years and over time the families inter-married until they are all now kissing cousins so to speak. Since the lineages are intersperced with each other you cannot list specific family lines. She has at least 12 Ancestors identified to date in the same county.

Thanks for your help.
