My Greene County Indiana Ancestors & More...

Manscripts IN progress

Always remember that you are absolutely unique...just like every one else - anonymous  

The last few years have been plagued with computer probelms - and I need to get this all combined cleaned up and worable if at all possible - please bear with me... I am getting old and tired....

The family book pages were first genrated with Personal Ancestral File and was being turned into TNG [The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding ] format to put up online so that webpages will not have to be remade eavery time new data comes in and can be autlomaticlly updated and can be done virtually from anywhere I have internet access. I liked it better but the project has taken a back seat with computer failure - PAST being no longer supported and aving to change to Roots magic

I have been in the proces of switching over - cleaning up etc. for the last 2 plus years.

I data based the manuscripts into PAF (Personal Ancestral FIle orginally some still in that program... the majority has been GEDcom-ed and turned into RootsMagic I am ay benhind in catching up on this
The Overmyer, Stahl, are Culver genealogies that were printed back when - there were a 2 books for the Overmyer's and a host of information on the web - lot of it i just socked into the note section so alot of clean up involved Norris was a transcript/typewritten on microfilm 2-4 volumes.

Alt/ault and some of the other manuscripts are in PAF (Personal Ancestral File) which is what I have been using over the last 10 years (swtiched in 1995-1996 and then it has been Gedcom-ed so it could be transferred to the TNG I have first tried to get everything into RootsMagic but need more time before i reconsider TNG again if ever - my friend installed so we could use on the websites/hositng mutally and work together on them

The genealogy program - will eliminate the constant need for re-generating webpages from PAF it also allows for all notes, commnets, docmentation and sourcing to be available to all.

        from here you can use the index to find your ancestors the numbers in () behind the name are from the above mentioned books; what numbering system they had or used. I am in the process of combining the PAF file of a friend's line that I have researched into the manuscript file and deciding if i should maintain both or just abanoned the orginial manuscript one and work with only the one file but I will try and keep the original with some addttions/corrections avaiable for comparision in future.
