Like many others, I started family research pre-internet. I put my tree in excel in the standard tree shape, using the comments feature to add notes. I have done the four (in my case three actually, my parents are cousins!), family names, in seperate files. I am now thinking of putting them all together somehow and wondered about a proper software program.
I have read through a lot of the boards and got some ideas of free trials to try, but wondered what top tips you would give your earlier self on record keeping, filing and computer programs?
Just a thought!
