The More Things Change…

Ancestral File, DOS VersionQuoting from a FamilySearch brochure:

This [product] will enable you to:

  • Coordinate your family history research with others working on the same family lines.
  • Reduce time-consuming and expensive duplication of effort.
  • Make your family information available to relatives and researchers.

A plug for the new FamilySearch (NFS) tree?

Nope.

The brochure is actually quite old. It is touting the advantages of the "hottest" new FamilySearch product: Ancestral File for DOS.

I guess it's true what they say. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

  1. I remember... I used to use Ancestral File for DOS back in the day. We thought we were soooo high tech. We've come a long way, baby.
