Richard, The TNG has to be easy if it's comfortable for me to use. Ha! Ha! My husband is the data base programmer and he chose this software because he felt it would be the best and easiest for our needs (we have a large data base consisting of eight family trees and lots of pictures). I find it easy to add new data, pictures and even correct things, but because I am working on 8 different families at any given time it is more time redeemable to reload and update the whole website than enter batches of new family data individually. We usually update this way about once a month. Reloading the whole website is cumbersome for me and Billy usually has to help with that, but otherwise I find TNG friendly. --- About the Harbard Friths. I know for sure my Harbard, age 40 found 1860 in Winn Parish is mine. Whether Harbard 1830 Amite Co, MS is the same would be my assumption. According to records the minimun age difference beween the 1830 Harbard and 1860 Harbard would be 11 years. I just don't know if they are the same. Oral history tells me that my Pa Tom (Thos. Herbert Frith born 1869 in LA the son of Harbard born 1815-1820 VA) had much American Indian descent. Pa Tom was very much a hunter, trapper and fisherman making his living this way while his wife taught school. Indians age well and my Harbard, 1860 Winn Parish could have perferred to pass as age 40 instead of age 51 due to having a 24 year old wife. Who knew and who cared besides Harbard? This too is an assumption. ---- You have given me resources in which to study and I really appreicate that. With time I may be able to find more info and make a determination. Thanks for your time and if you hear of any more info or have any other suggestions, please let me know. Your shared sites have been helpful. --- Rita Jones
