Changes to Your A&D Manuals

Following is a cumulative list of changes to the A&D manuals since they were published.  The list therefore includes changes to the manuals which were announced with the shipment of A&D Versions 1.00 through 1.61.  (We recommend that you print this README.NOW file so that you can cut the following text with scissors and tape it into the manuals on the pages listed.)

Volume 1:  Adventures in Genealogy

  1. Page 20:  Add the following sentence at the bottom of the page:
    "Household records are also used to keep track of cemeteries and major respositories — such as government archives."
  2. Page 31:  Change the text after the fourth bullet to read:
    "Each Source record can link to one Household record."
    Then cross out the parenthetical phrase that begins with:
    "(The reason that Sources should be added prior to ..."
    In the illustration, add a line from "Sources" to "Houseolds".  Add an arrowhead at the "Households" end, and the number "1" at the middle of the line.

  3. Page 68:  Change the text for keys F7 and F8 to read as follows:
    F7  Residences  To view the residences linked to the current individual or relationship.
    F8  Pedigree      To view an on-screen ancestors chart for the current individual.

  4. Page 68:  Key F12 cannot yet be used to block text.  You may want to note this here.

  5. Page 69:  Change the last paragraph to read as follows:
    "Simply press and release the Ctrl key.  If the cursor is resting on a field that contains a record number, you will be instantly taken to that record; in this case the key works as a hyperlink.  At any other place, a small help window will pop up to show you the available control options.  Since it shows your options, you don't have to memorize them."
  6. Page 71:  The } (right brace) ditto copying key works fine on Alias records; however, the } ditto copying does not yet work on the other record types.  You may want to note this here.  The " (double-quote) ditto copying does work exactly as described.

  7. Page 72:  Replace the single paragraph with the following seven new paragraphs:

    "The Home key will help you navigate through the records in a family history.  It works in two alternative ways:

    1. When in a text Note after having pressed F11, touch the Home key to move to position 1 of line 1 of that Note.  That is, pressing Home returns the cursor to the Home position of the Note.  This is very useful when you are in a very long Note.

    2. Otherwise, the Home key functions as a hyperlink to take you back to your last anchor record.  (Setting an "Anchor" is explained below.)  Pressing the Home key instantly returns you back to your most-recent anchor or starting record.

    Thus, the Home key is commonly used to step back from a hyperlink jump initiated by a Ctrl key.  For example, when at a Relationship record, you can use the Ctrl key to hyperlink jump to the husband's Individual record to look at details about him — and then press the Home key to quickly return back to the Relationship record.

    A&D automatically sets and remembers an anchor record for later use when you press the Home key.  An anchor is first set when you go to an Individual, Relationship, Household, or Source record from sub-menu Screen 20, 30, 40, or 50.  The first record you select is the initial anchor for a session.

    The anchor is reset to the current record whenever you press a Ctrl key or enter the father, mother, spouse, husband, or wife word command.

    For example, to set John Smith (Individual 123) as an anchor, go to Individual record 123 and enter one of the five word commands or press Ctrl at Field 28, 29, 33, or 38 through 49.  Then, even if you then visit or change hundreds of other records, the anchor lets you instantly return to Individual 123 at any time by just touching the Home key."

  8. Page 104:  Correct the paragraph after the "Offset Years End Dates" table to read as follows:
    "Ironically, when these countries switched from the Julian Calendar to the Gregorian Calendar, they also returned back to the Julian standard of beginning the year on the 1st of January and ending it on the 31st of December."
  9. Page 104:  Correct the second paragraph from the bottom of the page (the one that begins "Much more") by deleting "Scotland,".

  10. Page 111:  Change "1994" to "1999" in the fourth line.  Also, change "1993" to "1998" in the first line of the third bullet.

  11. Pages 133 through 136:  Over 30 new reports and forms have been added to A&D since Volume 1 was originally printed.  With this shipment of A&D to you, we have included updated reprints of these four pages.  Attach each of these reprints on top of the original four pages.  You can use glue or adhesive tape.

    Note:  More detailed listings are available online.  Go to A&D Screen 97 to view a index to A&D's printed forms, and go to Screen 98 to see an index and guide to 96 of the standard reports available from A&D.

Volume 2:  Getting Started

  1. Page 1:  In the seventh line from the bottom of the page, change "360-kilobyte" to "1.2-megabyte".

  2. Page 3:  In the third line from the bottom of the page, change Windows versions "3.0, 3.1, 3.11, or 95" to "3.x, 95, 98, or NT".

  3. Page 20:  Under the "Windows" heading, change the sentence
      "If you are using Windows 95, do the following:" to read
      "If you are using Windows 95, 98, or NT, do the following:".

  4. Page 21:  Add the following "Note" at the bottom of the page:
    Note:  When you leave Screen I1, some newer Windows computers may display a message that says "Please insert diskette for Drive B:" followed by another message that says "Please insert diskette for Drive A:"  Disregard these messages and press any key to bypass them.
  5. Page 28:  Included with this shipment of A&D is a reprint of page 28.  Attach this reprinted page on top of the original page.  Use glue or adhesive tape.  The new text provides improved instructions for installing A&D when you have Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT.  In the three places where "Windows 95" appears, change it to read "Windows 95 or 98".

  6. Page 38:  Near the bottom of the page, change "1 January 1995" to "1 January 1999".

  7. Page 47:  In the illustration of Screen 4, add the following new line after "Surnames in caps" Field 8:
      "Surnames last     (Y,N) - 9}No"

  8. Page 48:  At Field 2 "Keep error sounds on:", add the following new paragraph or footnote:
    "Hyperlink sounds are also governed by this field.  When set to Y, a mild zoom sound will occur each time you do a hyperlink."

  9. Page 49:  At Field 7 "National currency symb:", add the following new text after "North American edition of A&D.":
    "You may set any of 18 different currency symbols. Enter the letter A for Australia, K for the Scandanavian countries, N for New Zealand, or O for the £ symbol.  Enter X to see an error message that gives the 18 possible entries."
  10. Page 50:  Add the following instructions for new Field 9:
      "- 9}   Surnames last (Y,N):
    Enter Y to reverse the sequence of an individual's name in printed reports and on most screen displays.  (This will not effect how names are entered or filed in Individual or Alias records; it only effects subsequent printouts or displays where full names are shown.)  N is the normal default entry."
  11. Page 55:  Note the following changes to Screen 6:
    1. Field 1 now has six possible entries.  Change "(1-5)" to "(1-6)" both in Screen 6 and in the text following it.
    2. Entries 4 and 5 (for Serial port 1 and 2), however, are not functional and should not be used at this time.
    3. Entry 6 means "Output to file REPORT.A&D".  Enter 6 to send all subsequent A&D reports to a file named "REPORT.A&D" in the root directory of the drive where your family history resides.

      For example, if your current family is on drive C, all reports for that family will be sent to "C:\REPORT.A&D".  Reports will continue to be appended to this file until you come back to Screen 6 and change Field 1 back to a parallel printer port (an entry of 1, 2, or 3).

      The size of file REPORT.A&D is limited only by the available space on your hard disk or diskette.

      When you send your report data to file REPORT.A&D, you probably will not want the data to include the printer control characters normally issued by A&D to control your printer.  You can exclude these characters by pressing ALT at Field 2 of Screen 6 and selecting "Custom" as the current printer (if your word processor can import IBM-standard line-drawing characters).  Use printer "ASCII generic" or "Dataset" if your word processor cannot import IBM-standard line-drawing characters.

      After importing REPORT.A&D into your word processor, you will probably have to (1) widen your left and right margins and (2) select a Courier font such as Courier 12 cpi or Courier 17 cpi.

      A&D will not delete file REPORT.A&D; when you are done using that file, delete it by using the file delete command in your word processor, in DOS, or in Windows.

      Be sure to reset Fields 1 and 2 at Screen 6 back to their normal values when you want to resume normal printing.

  12. Page 57:  Although Screen 6 now contains various fields for setting parameters for serial printers, A&D currently supports only parallel printers (as indicated in our brochures).  Disregard serial port Fields 3 through 6.

  13. Pages 62 and 63:  Field 3 of Screen 9 was revised.  Previously it was titled "CR/LF on each line"; now it is titled "Lines added at TOP".  TOP means "top of page".  The normal entry in this field is 1.  An entry larger than 1 is required for some laser printers to properly align Avery-label or rotary-card stock in those printers.

Volume 3:  Tutorial

  1. Page vi, line 3:  Change "in 1994 and 1995," to read "beginning in 1994,".

  2. Page 14:  In the illustration of Screen 11, "Siz" column, change "1" to "2".

  3. Page 35:  Change "F7" to "F8" in three places (in the heading, on line 3, and in the first line after the screen illustration).

  4. Page 46:  Insert the following new text just before the last sentence on this page:
    Hyperlinking:  When a field contains a record number, you can easily jump to that record to view it in more detail.  The record number is called a hyperlink.  To illustrate, move the cursor up to Field 3.  That field contains the number 3 which is the Individual record for Jacqueline Bouvier.  To jump to Jackie's record, just lightly and briefly press either one of your computer's two Control (Ctrl) keys.  Jackie's record will instantly appear.

    Hyperlinking works at a total of 118 of A&D's data fields.  For example, press the Tab key to go to Jackie's Screen 23b.  Here you can hyperlink from Fields 28, 29, 33, and 38 through 49.  Just move the cursor to any of these fields and then press one of the Control keys."

Volume 4:  Reference Manual

  1. Page 5, Field BUs:  This field is now automatically completed as you move across it.  The meaning of the entries as described on page 5 is still correct.  However, if a "#" symbol appears in this column, it means that the family history is too big to be backed up on the size of diskettes that you defined in Screen 5 for the Backup drive.

  2. Pages 18 and 19:  Change the name of the tenth Record Type on the screen from "Annual Reminder" to "Events Calendar".

  3. Page 33:  At Field 36, change "by Report 75 and Screen 76." to "by Report 76.".

  4. Page 49:  At the top of the page, add a fourth bullet:  "-  Press the Ctrl key and then the letter i.

  5. Page 51:  At the bottom of the page, add a fourth bullet:  "-  Press the Ctrl key and then the letter i.

  6. Page 62:  By the F10 key illustration, add a fourth bullet:  "-  Press the Ctrl key and then the letter i.

  7. Page 72:  At Field 16, change "by Report 75 and Screen 76." to "by Report 76.".

  8. Page 77:  In the fifth paragraph (that begins with "You may, however, enter the children"), delete the last sentence (the one that reads "You can fill in the other names later, and rearrange their order if needed"), and add the following two sentences:  "Fill in Fields 34 and 36 with Alternate entries (as described below).  This is because you must not leave blank child fields prior to a child field that has an Individual Number in it."

  9. Page 78:  By the F10 key illustration, add the sentence:  "Or you can press the Ctrl key and then the letter i.

  10. Page 92:  Add an asterisk (*) at the end of the instructions for Fields 2 and 3 ("Res.1/Male/Husb" and "Res.2/Fem./Wife", respectively).  Then add the following footnote at the bottom of page 92:
    "*Leave this field blank if you are creating a Household record for a cemetery or a source repository."
  11. Page 99:  Field 37 "Total # of Residents".  Add the following sentence at the bottom of the page:
    "If you are creating a Household record for a cemetery, enter the total number of your relatives buried at the cemetery."
  12. Page 101:  By the F10 key illustration, add the sentence:  "Or you can press the Ctrl key and then the letter i.

  13. Page 110:  Add the following sentence at the bottom of the page:
      "To print a report that lists all of a person's residences, select Option 8 at Screen 48b."

  14. Page 115, Field 4 "Source Cost":  Add an asterisk (*) after the word "dollar" in second line, after the word "dollars" in the fourth line, and after the word "cents" in the fifth line.  Then add a footnote at the bottom of the page that says:
      "*The National Currency Symbol is set at Screen 4, Field 7."

  15. Page 116:  Make six changes to this page as follows:
    1. Cross out and delete Field "-6} Research Flag:" and the two lines that describe it.
    2. Just below that, change "Go to Field 10." to "Go to Field 9."
    3. Change   "-7}  Updated By:"   to "-6}  Updated By:".
    4. Change   "-8}  Last Updated" to "-7}  Last Updated".
    5. Change   "-9}  Date Created" to "-8}  Date Created".
    6. Change "-10}  Continuation"   to "-9}  Continuation".

  16. Page 117:  Add the following new text at the middle of the page:
    "-10}  HH No.:  Enter the Household Number of the repository,
    residence, or business where this source document can be found.  (This assumes that you already have or will enter the repository, residence, or business into A&D as described in Chapter 4.)  In other words, enter the Household Number of the place were a future genealogist should go to get a copy of this source.  If you possess the original document (such as an old family Bible), enter the Household of your current residence."
  17. Page 123:  Change three lines in the illustration of the Screen 60 Reports Menu as follows: 
    1. Change option 4 "family histories"     to "end-of-line persons".
    2. Change option 5 "surname reports"   to "household registers".
    3. Change option 8 "70 special reports" to "code usage reports".

  18. Page 124:  In the illustration of Screen 62, at Field 2 change "Generations" to "Generations/page".  And at Field 3, change "Chart series" to "Multiple pages".

  19. Page 125:  Change the descriptions of five fields as follows:
    At Field 1:  Add the following sentence after "correct person.":  "Or press Alt or F10 to select a name."
    At Field 2:  Change the name of the field from "Generations (3-5)" to "Generations/page (3-5)".

  21. Page 127:  Make six changes to this page as follows:
    1. In the "Screen 63.  Print Descendants Reports" section, add an asterisk (*) after "Select the options you desire."
    2. In the "Screen 64.  Print Family Histories" heading, change "Family Histories" to "End-of-Line Persons".
    3. Under the "Screen 64" heading, delete the sentence that begins with "Option 4 is reserved".
    4. In the "Screen 65.  Print Surname Reports" heading, change "Surname Reports" to "Household Records".
    5. Under the "Screen 65" heading, delete the sentence that begins with "Option 5 is reserved".  Add the following: "Two different reports are available here:  an Individual Households Record, and a Relationship Households Record."
    6. Attach the following four-paragraph-long footnote to the page: * A&D checks the Adoption/Lineage Code field before including an individual in a Descendants Report.  Persons with Adoption/Lineage Code H or S are excluded from these reports.  Persons who have any other Adoption/Lineage Code are included in these reports.  When present, the code letter is printed within brackets to the left of the Individual Number.  If you entered Adoption/Lineage Code B, C, or D and properly entered the adopted person into two Relationship records, the individual will appear twice in the Descendants Report.

      The default settings of the fields in Screen 63 will produce a standard Descendants Report with one line of print for each individual.  To see the various options available, press the Alt key while your cursor is on Fields 3 through 10.

      Field 2 "Generations" has a normal default entry of 15.  Enter a smaller number to limit the number of generations that will print in your Descendants Report.  Fifteen is the maximum number of generations that can be printed on any one Descendants Report.

      Enter a 2 or a 3 in Field 3 "All descendants" to produce reports that list primary descendants only.  These reports are based upon your entries in Individual Field 33 "Prime Spouse" and Relationship Field 33 "Seq. # of Primary".  If you leave these Fields 33 blank, the Primary Descendants reports are based upon the first spouse and the first child of each descendant.

  22. Page 128:  Make six changes to this page as follows:
    1. Change the phrase "70 special" to "code usage" in three places in the top 2 inches of the page.
    2. Also change "70 available" to "103 available" reports.
    3. Screen 68a has changed slightly.  Option F "Family History Size" is now "For future use".  Option 3 is now "Profiles" and Option 4 is now "Diagrams".
    4. In the definition of "Diagrams", change "print 3, 4, or 5 generations" to "print 4 generations".
    5. Change the definition of "Profiles" to be "Profiles are listings that focus on a single code value."  For example, you can produce a profile report that lists all the individuals that you have encoded in Field 21 as having died in "Schleswig-Holstein", or another that lists all marriages encoded as "Annulment, Catholic" in the Ended By field.
    6. Delete the last sentence on page 128.  Replace it with "Third, for certain reports, 'Step 3' will appear in the lower part of the screen for you to enter additional selection information."

  23. Page 129, line 4:  Change "when F7 is" to "when F8 is".

  24. Page 129:  Change four lines in the illustration of Screen 70 Research Menu as follows:
    1. Change option 3 "anomalies reports"   to "source usage reports"

  26. Page 132:  Make eight changes as follows:
    Screen 73:  Change its name from "Print Anomalies Reports" to "Print Source Usage Reports".
    Screen 73:  Cross out the sentence that begins "Option 3 is".  Then insert the following text:
    Screen 73 lets you produce the following eight reports to better manage your sources:
    Report 731 "Source Usage Record"
    Report 732 "Sources by Source Type"
    Report 733 "Individuals' Source Matrix"
    Report 734 "Relationships' Source Matrix"
    Report 735 "Households' Source Matrix"
    Report 736 "Individuals with no Sources"
    Report 737 "Relationships with no Sources"
    Report 738 "Households with no Sources"

    Report 731 will, for any Source in your Family History, scan your entire database and list all individuals, relationships, and households that are linked to that Source record.  The report lets you quickly verify that you have properly entered all appropriate links for a source.  You can run this report against one source at a time, against a range, or against your full set of sources.

    Reports 732 through 738 are listings that can be quickly run against your full Family History database, or a range of records, to assess the quality and completeness of your sources.  Reports 732, 733, and 734 also let you print a one-page legend to explain the meanings of the 33 column headings in the Source Matrix.  With these reports, you can spot potential gaps in your research, types of sources yet to be researched, and individuals, relationships, and/or households on which you need to do more investigation.

    Screen 74:  Change the heading from "End-of-Line Persons" to "Repos. Usage Reports".
    Screen 74:  Cross out the sentence that begins "Option 4 is".

    Screen 76:  Cross out the word "future" in the first line of text.

  27. Page 136:  In two places in the first paragraph, change "F7" to "F8".

  28. Page 139:  In the illustration of Screen 80 "Other Options Menu", change three lines as follows:
    1 - from "Review reminder calendar" to "Print family calendar"
    3 - from "Reserved for future use" to "Print anomalies report"
    6 - from "Reserved for future use" to "Print LDS ordinances status"
    Also change the Screen 81 heading from "Review Reminder Calendar" to "Print Family Calendar", and the middle of the first line of the bottom paragraph from "Review reminder calendar" to "Print family calendar".

  29. Page 141:  Change the Screen 83 title from "Reserved for Future Use" to "Print Anomalies Report".

  30. Page 141:  Second paragraph after the Screen 84 heading: Add "The Master Genealogist, Ultimate Family Tree, " in the last line before "and most other genealogical software products."

  31. Page 145:  Make two changes to this page as follows:

    1. Change the 3rd and 4th lines from the bottom to read:
      "Origins, Roots, The Master Genealogist, or Ultimate Family Tree.  Use either Option 2 or 3 as described below."

    2. Change the last line at the bottom to read:
      "diskette for someone who uses the Family Tree Maker Version 4 or later, Family Origins Version 6 or later, PAF 3.0, Roots III or IV, The Master Genealogist, or Ultimate Family Tree products."

  32. Page 146:  Make four changes to this page as follows:

    1. At lines 5 and 6:  Change the text after "Brother's Keeper" to read "Family Tree Maker Versions 3 and earlier, Family Origins Versions 5 and earlier, PAF Version 2.31 and earlier, or other basic genealogical products".

    2. In the middle of the page, just before the Screen 86 heading and just after the phrase "LDS TempleReady program.", add an asterisk (*).

    3. Change the Screen 86 title from "Reserved for Future Use" to "Print LDS Ordinances Status".  Then cross out the sentence that starts "Option 6 is reserved".

    4. Then cut out and attach (tape or glue) the following four paragraphs to the top of page 146:

      * At Screen 85b, specify which record(s) you want to be included in the GEDCOM output file [you have a choice of seven different ways to select the record(s)].  At Screen 85c, decide which drive will be used to write the diskette (usually it's drive A, and yes you should have a blank diskette available).  At Screen 85d, enter a name for the GEDCOM file that will be created and put on the diskette. Screen 85e lets you add comments that will be put at the front of the GEDCOM file.  The GEDCOM file is then created and written while Screen 85f shows you the number of records being processed. You can repeat the process if you change your mind.  If you use the same file name and the same diskette, the new GEDCOM file will erase and replace the first one.  If you use the same diskette but change the name of the GEDCOM file, the new GEDCOM file will be added to the diskette.  You can write any number of GEDCOM files to a single diskette — as long as the sum of their sizes doesn't exceed the capacity of that diskette.

      Not all A&D fields can be exported — even if you use the advanced option.  Fields that cannot be exported are those that relate to your own unique situation, rather than relating to the individuals, relationships, households, and sources being exported.  The non-exportable fields are Updated By, Date Created, Last Updated, Photograph No., Other F.H. Code/Id, Other Individual #, Research Flag, the Mailing Lists codes, B.Remind, Anniversary Reminder, Kind of Evidence, and Source Cost.  The person receiving your GEDCOM file can and should have different entries in these fields than you have.

      Screen 86.  Print LDS Ordinances Status

      Report 86 "LDS Ordinances Status" is a two-part report that gives the status of both individual ordinances and marriage sealings.  The report includes all persons who are "LDS" in Religion/Church Field 32, "M" in Individual Option Field 50, and/or "M" in Relationship Option Field 11.

  33. Page 153:  In the illustration of Screen 90 "Guides and Help Menu", change two lines as follows: 7 - from "Genealogical books" to "Print anomalies report"
    8 - from "Genealogical periodicals" to "Reports guide and index"

  34. Page 154:  Make four changes to this page as follows:
    1. In the Screen 97 heading, change "Genealogical Books" to "Forms Guide".
    2. In the Screen 97 text, first line, replace "six best genealogy books" with "seven genealogical forms that A&D can print".
      Then delete the second line.
    3. In the Screen 98 heading, change "Genealogical Periodicals" to "Reports Guide and Index".
    4. In the Screen 98 text, first line, replace "seven genealogy periodicals." with "96 types of genealogical reports that A&D can print."  Then delete the second sentence.

  35. Page 155:  Error No. 25 was updated.  Its message is now "Printer is not selected or is busy!".  Change the first sentence to read "If your printer is not selected, press its Select or Online button."

    Between Error No. 25 and Error No. 27, add the following line:  "25a   See page 164 for further information."

  36. Page 161:  Add the following two new error messages:

    175  Ancestor nnn parent-of-self error!  An individual is entered an ancestor of himself or herself.  Go to Screen 62 and print a one-page Ancestors Chart beginning with Individual nnn to find your error.  Then correct the Individual or Relationship record(s).  (F)

    176  Blank spouse in Relationship nnnn!  Either Relationship Field 2 or Field 3 is blank.  Enter the missing Individual Number or, if the individual is unknown, press the Alt key and then press F or M.  Reprint the Descendants report. (W)

  37. Page 164:  Cut out and attach (tape or glue) the following new text for error message 25a:

    25a  Printer error 25a can occur while printing Ancestors Charts and certain other reports.  It indicates that a random printer problem occurred and that the current page has been ruined.  When this happens, A&D will eject the bad page and reprint the page.  If error 25a occurs four times on a single chart, A&D will give up trying to print that page and will advance to the next chart.

    If error 25a occurs excessively and a good Ancestors Chart set (or other report) is not produced, do the following:

    1. Go to Screen 6 "Set Printer & Keyboard".

    2. Set Field 1 "Printer Port" to 6.

    3. Press End to exit Screen 6.

    4. Press F6 and 2 to return to Screen 62 (or the other report's screen).

    5. Set whichever options you desire at Screen 62.

    6. When done, press End to generate the Ancestors Charts.  They will be written to a file on your hard disk.  For example, if your current family history is on Drive C, the Ancestors Charts will be in the file C:\REPORT.A&D.  The maximum size of file C:\REPORT.A&D is limited only by the available space on your hard disk.

    7. Press Escape and type Y to exit A&D.

    8. If you are in Windows, click on the DOS Prompt icon in the Program Manager's Main group to exit to DOS.

    9. Type the following at the C: prompt:

          TYPE C:\REPORT.A&D > LPT1

      and press Enter (the above assumes that your family history is on drive C and that your printer is on printer port 1).  Your reports will print properly on your printer.

    10. Type ERASE C:\REPORT.A&D and press Enter to erase the file.

    11. If you got here from Windows, type EXIT and press Enter.

    12. Start up A&D in the usual manner.

    13. Go to Screen 6 and reset Field 1 "Printer Port" back to its original value (which is normally 1).

  38. Page 167:  The } (right brace) ditto copying key works fine on Alias records; however, it does not yet work on the other record types.  You may want to note this here on page 167.

Volume 5:  History Encoding

  1. Page 2:  Code U was added to Table A (Adoption/Lineage).  Its meaning is the same as the prior meaning of Code S as printed in your manual.  Code S henceforth translates to "Step-father/Father known" and means "The child was raised by the step-father and the natural mother; no adoption occurred; the natural father is known.  Enter the child with his natural surname, and as a child within both Relationship records."

    Also on page 2 after the heading "Custom Codes":  change "Up to four" to "Up to three".

  2. Page 45:  Add a new entry at the top of the table as follows:
      Cemetery . . . . . . . . CE . . . . . . . . Cemetery
    Also add a new entry at the bottom of the table as follows:
      Repository . . . . . . . RE . . . . . . . . Repository
    Also, replace all of the text under the "Custom Codes" heading with the following new text:
    "One additional household type may be added to this table.  For example, the code PR could be added for Prison if you discover that you had a bunch of wayward ancestors or relatives.

    In addition, the `Current other address' and `Historic other address' entries can be modified if you so desire.  Use the Screen 87 change process (see Volume 4:  Reference Manual) to change the translation."

  3. Page 51:  Change "Personal knowledge", in two places in the right column of the table, to "Personally known".

  4. Page 99:  Near the top of the page, add the following new Title after "Monsignor":
        Mrs. . . . . . . . . . . MRS . . . . . . . . . . . Mrs.

  5. Page 100:  In the first line under "Custom Codes", change the word "four" to "three".
