I've corrected several errors and added new information to my copy of the GRANDMA database. How can I make certain that this new information is included in future volumes of GRANDMA?
I've created a database of my own containing persons of Low German Mennonite ancestry, at least some of whom don't appear on the GRANDMA CD. Do you want this information?
We are very interested in receiving any changes you have made to the GRANDMA database or any new files that you might have created on your own. Choose the most suitable option from those listed below if you want to send us your information:
1. If you've only made a few changes here and there, it's probably easiest to drop us a note telling us what you've done. Please be sure to include record numbers for people already in the database, so that we make our changes to the correct records. Send notes via regular mail (California Mennonite Historical Society, 1717 S. Chestnut Ave., Box 2300, Fresno CA 93702) or via e-mail. Please note that emails sent to this address will not receive a reply. If you have a question or need a response, send your message to Kevin Enns-Rempel.
2. If you have made most of your changes to a particular family line, you should probably use the Brother's Keeper Split Database function. This function is well documented in the Brother's Keeper manual or on-screen help files. Databases can be split to include all ancestors of a particular person or all descendants of a particular person. Don't worry if some of the data in your new database is duplicated from the CD files. In fact, we need some duplicated information so that we know where your new data should fit. Send your new database via regular mail or as an e-mail attachment to Jay Hubert.
3. Databases created separately from GRANDMA can be sent via regular mail or e-mail attachment to Jay Hubert. Persons using programs other than Brother's Keeper should send their files in Gedcom format.
