Tree Tracing Revisted
In the June "Letters" column of Gazette, we asked readers to help Roy N. Kelley of Hamilton, Ohio, locate genealogy programs for his 64/128. Dozens of people wrote, and here are some of their suggstions.
Byteware, 906 West 6th Avenue, Monmouth, Illinois 61462, has shareware, FGS and PED C, $21.95, that produces family group sheets and pedigree sheets. I have been using the original for two years, and I like it very much. An improved version is also available.

The following companies provide 64 and 128 genealogy software of various degrees of sophistication and pricing: Traces, P.O. Box 168, Center, Missouri 63436; PFA, 8600 Old Spanish Trail #79, Tucson, Arizona 85710; and Quinsept, P.O. Box 216, Lexington, Massachusetts 02173.
I have used Traces' program for recording census data, and it generally works well. I use Jenny II, the Genealogist, from Basic Fundamentals, 3366 South 2300 East, Salt Lake City, Utah 84109, $19.95, regularly to update my family files.
