Thanks for the kind message. I am excited to be getting back. I am no further along (with my old database), so I think I'm going to have to start anew (if my last effort with PKZip don't work). BUT, I WILL start anew if I must. I can't bear not to be involved in my family history.
By the way, the address.com email address was terrible. So, at least until I move to Florida, I will be using firstname.lastname@example.org
