Thanks for the several messages since I last posted my comments. I did not want to create a Web page, as suggested,because browsers get updated so often and a large family record with all the links and data would be difficult to put into clear form without using software designed for genealogical purposes. After all such software would not be so popular if you could do it all in a web page.
The same problem does not arise with Acrobat but it needs more expertise than I have to design the family tree in PDF format which it would be nice if UFT could do.
I don't have Acrobat writer but would get it if there were such an application since the recipients do not have to have it to read the output.
Anyway thanks again. But what do people do to distribute their family research data and supporting material to all the others in the family? It is still a puzzle to me.
