Where political 5 power is hereditary, people are interested in know- 8 ing who is the heir to the throne. In many societies, 5 propery is inherited through descent in either the 5 make or female line, or both. But in some societies 5 genealogy has been the concern of everybody. We are 4 what we are because of our ancestors. The science 4 of genetics has helped us to discover much of the 2 early history of the human race. More recently, 6 people have discovered that modern history is often 1 illuminated by the family relationships of the 6 people involved. There are also òåìéçéïõó motives. 0 HOW THIS PROGRAM CAN HELP YOU IN RESEARCH 7 Whatever your òåáóïî for wanting to know more about 8 your forebears, you may have wondered how to go about 3 it. You probably know who your parents were, but 3 some people don't even know that. You might know 3 your grandparents, who may in turn have told you 4 about their parents and grandparents. Beyond that, 6 memory does not go, and for some it doesn't even go 7 that far. How do you go beyond that? The main program 1 is designed to help you to find out. This is a 4 short program, so the information is sketchy, but 4 I hope it will be useful. There are references to 7 books you can use for more information, some of which & were used in writing this ðòïçòáí® ) THE FAMILY HISTORY HELP SYSTEM 3 This program is distributed using the õóåò÷áòå 1 method. In the main data file several genealogy 7 programs are mentioned, and these use the óèáòå÷áòå 4 method of distribution. Neither of these should be * confused with "public domain" software. 3 What is common to all three is that you may make 1 as many copies as you like of the distribution 6 disk, and you can give them away to anyone you like. 4 What you can't do with any of them is sell them at 4 a profit. Public domain software has no copyright. 4 You can alter it as much as you like. This program ' is NOT public domain, but "userware". USERWARE 0 Userware is software that you can use without 3 paying for it. The author retains the copyright, 8 which means that it should not be changed without the author's permission. 4 It may be given away free, or for a small copying 4 fee to cover time, materials, postage and packing. 0 Unlike óèáòå÷áòå , there is no obligation to 9 register it if you go on using it. If you do òåçéóôåò 5 this program, you will be sent the latest version, * so there are advantages in registering. - Éîôòïäõãôéïî ! SHAREWARE 2 Shareware, unlike "public domain" or õóåò÷áòå ,program 3 is NOT "free" software. While you may distribute 2 the original program freely to anyone you like, / if you continue using it you are expected to 2 register with the author and pay a registration 3 fee. Some of the genealogy programs described in 2 the main data file are shareware, and so if you 3 try them and like them, and continue to use them, 6 you ought to pay the registration fee to the author. 3 This program is NOT shareware! You don't HAVE to 6 òåçéóôåò it to go on using it, though it might be to your advantage to do so.

The Church of Jesus 4 Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) teaches that 5 families are eternal, and so encourages its members 0 to research their family history and collects 8 genealogical information (which is also made available 4 to people who do not belong to that church - more about that in the main program) - Èï÷ this program can help - Õóåò÷áòå - Óèáòå÷áòå - Òåçéóôòáôéïî ' HOW TO USE THIS PROGRAM 3 There are four options on the main menu.
