The FAMILY TIES Genealogy program is designed for the organized compilation of personal genealogical information. All of the names entered in this program are automaticaly linked to each other. Starting with one individual (usually yourself) use the edit mode to enter your information. Then add a person linked to this first individual eg. parents, spouse, other spouse or child and enter their information. You may start with any male person and then ancestors or decendants may be added in any order. You may jump around and add as you please. This program also does a nice job printing out a family tree. This program also has an optional mode which conforms to the preferences of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS) and maintains records according to sealings, baptisms, endowments, and temple dates. Other history of relatives can be entered in the record for every person covered.

UDATING OLD FAMILY TIES DATABASES Use with VER 1.10 through VER 1.14 to update to VER 1.15 [If you are using ver 1.00 to 1.09 then call for instructions.] Overview of what to do: Since changes have been made to all the program files a full re-install is necessary. Use VER 1.15 to create a new database using the same name as was originally used. DELete the 4 new data files and copy in the 4 old data files. NOTE: comments are in square brackets  These are the steps: (for floppy disks) PLACE A WRITE PROTECT TAB ON THE NOTCHES IN THE OLD PROGRAM & DATA DISKS. Use COPYPROG to copy the program files from the master disk to a formatted disk with DOS installed. Format a second blank disk without DOS for data. All these files must be present on the program disk: FT.EXE PRINT.CTR NAMES.DA1 FTINSTAL.EXE COMMAND.COM(optional) FTCOLOR.DAT FGRSH.INS NAMES.NTS FTINSTAL.DAT Enter FTINSTAL<ret> [to create a new database - use same name as old] Enter DEL *.DA?<ret> [delete the 2 new data files from the program disk A:] Remove the new data disk from B: Place the OLD program disk in B: Enter COPY B:*.DA?<ret> [copy the old data from the old program disk] Place the new data disk in A: and the OLD data disk in B: Enter DEL A:*.*<ret> [delete the new empty data files] Enter COPY B:*.*/V<ret> [copy the OLD data files to the new data disk] The NEW program and data disks are now ready.
