I went ahead and dove into Reunion 9, also on a Mac... It syncs with my iPhone, so I have all the family data at hand all the time.. Changes there will be sync'd at the next linkup...

Actual paper filing, I'm bad, hanging files folders in an old oak file cabinet... I've scanned about everything and those scans are in various family folders here on my Mac, in some cases, DVDs burned, but organized, no..

I used to use the LDS program, but it skipped a beat, wasn't updated for ages, so I leapt onto Reunion... Actually, way, way back I had an old Northstar Basic program we converted to AppleSoft Basic. Me and another Western Electric engineer, sent it back ad forth, fixing, improving it, we came close to trying to market it, but that never happened... Many, many layers of parenthesis in it, any typo broke it, but it was fun doing it..

So Reunion is it, need to add more photos, there is a local Mac user Group Special Interest Group that meets once a month, goes over it and other topics, but I seem to have missed the last year of meetings... Need a prod I guess...
