Evening from Sunny Florida. For those patient folk whose inquiries I am
behind on, I'll be with you very soon. You will recall that I have had
machos trouble with my family software and web page server. I have all new
software, server, and web page assistance. When I imported my "Daniel Master
File" to PAF I received an interesting message. Out of 18,569 individuals
there were 11,569 errors. These merge tags, duplications and repeated notes
were driving me crazy. At least in PAF I can see how to correct my problems.
It also provides indexing and such.
From the file of Hard Knocks:
1. Never run a utility program in the background with WFT Maker. You will
be guaranteed a lock up or crash with loss of data. Back in 1998 I was slow
to learn this lesson and very reluctant to change my ways. I have until
recently made the same mistake.
2. Any problems you experience with a family tree program will be, in the
providers view, your fault. They tried to explain to me how identical
individuals will not merge, just duplicate. This sofware is fine for those
who will not put it to the test.
3. There will be duplications and merge tags on my new pages but I am
working to remove them. You will also be able to get around much smoother
with the new setup. http://paynedaniel.com
To my friend "CAT," my Asa does not match yours, sorry. To those who would
like to connect Robert Daniell of SC with Roger Daniell, Jr., of Va., there
is no support for the information found in the WTF Family Information Disk, 6
& 7. Others may add to this position, but until I know better, there is no
connection. It is speculation on my part that the Roger, Roger, Roger, is
the English origin of Roger, Sr., of Warrick Co., Va.
There is no support for the placement of Capt. William Daniel of Middlesex,
Va., in the Daniel family of DeTabley, England. He was not William of Wigan!
It is possible that Robert Daniels of Mass, may be connected to the
Lancashire Daniels, but this ball just kicked around by us wanna knows?
The John Daniel family of Virginia was not the John Daniel of Barbados.
Thomas Daniel of Barbados was not the Thomas Daniel of Tyrrell Co., NC. Was
Ann Daniel the mother of this Thomas? What did Bacon's Rebellion have to do
with the family of
John and Wilbert of Virginia? I am still beating these dead horses!
A little humor - "Did you hear about the lady who went on trial for murdering
her husband? The jury felt sorry for her and let her off because she was a
I find the recent exchanges on the "rootsweb" refreshing. Keep up the good
