ASSIGNMENT
  1. Open your PAF database in Family Insight and run the Edit Rin's/Pedigrees on it and see how many "islands" of data you have.
  2. Run the Merge Option on your database and see if there are duplicate individuals in it.  Did you think you had that many islands?
  3. If you have another old database, run your master database as the Primary one and the old one as the Secondary one and check to see whether there is any data that you need to update into your primary database so you can delete the old one.
  4. Do a New FamilySearch on some name in your database using Family Insight and see what you want to download.
