Disk No: 2933 Disk Title: KinQuest PC-SIG Version: S1.0 Program Title: KinQuest Author Version: 5.0 Author Registration: $79.00 Special Requirements: 640K RAM, DOS 3.1, and an Epson compatible printer KINQUEST is an industrial strength genealogical research tool that is easy to use yet is a serious research tool for both the amateur and professional genealogist. It was designed to answer a need to correlate large amounts of detailed source information quickly. There are two major research problems which KINQUEST is specially able to handle. The first is the problem of conflicting facts. As a genealogical record grows, it becomes more difficult to validate new facts. KINQUEST can quickly display vital statistics and a list of all documents in the research file that contain any one name on the database. Second is the problem of the indefinite relative. Research turns up many names that cannot be easily related to a family but whose relationship cannot be ruled out. KINQUEST is a place to put that information until such a time as that fact iS needed. This genealogy program allows the entry of 2 billion names without the need to enter relationships or ID numbers. Relationships can be added or changed without the need to re-enter data. Different families and unrelated names can be kept on the same database. Multiple databases are allowed. There are no program limits to numbers of marriages or children. Searching can be done by parts of names or places (e.g. middle name or birth county) or by jumping to any immediate relative or ancestor (by using an ancestor chart). KINQUEST controls document references and displays all documents for a given name, and will produce five reports. The shareware version also comes complete with the ancestry of George Washington. KINQUEST runs on floppy or hard disk and is perfect for laptops used to gather field data. PC-SIG 1030D East Duane Avenue Sunnyvale Ca. 94086 (408) 730-9291 (c) Copyright 1989 PC-SIG, Inc.
