Internet Sources

Showing Internet Sites as Sources I recently decided to use the findagrave.com database as a secondary source on the Burial dates and places in my Ancestral Quest file.

AQ Version 14.00.11

AQ 14.00.11 is here When Ancestral Quest 14.00.10 became available, with access to the Family Tree, it was a major programming effort. Gaylon Findlay, the creator of Ancestral Quest, referred to it as a lobotomy.  As a programmer, I would expect minor corrections to be needed when the general public has a chance to use …
