CONCLUSIONS

ASSIGNMENT
  1. Download and install the evaluation version of GENViewer.
  2. For the List view, change the columns to show the 5 places - birth, christening, marriage, death, and burial, so you can see what cleaning up of place names you need to do in your database.  (Alphabetizing on any of these columns shows where some of the problems are.)
  3. Set up a combination of conditions, e.g. given name is Edward and they were born in [some state] before 1900, and search through all files in a folder for that combination of conditions.
