No negativity here, maybe some frustrations though.
I have decided to include the IOM names in my database because I do believe there is a connection somewhere and will continue to research it until I find one. I have way to much time, energy, and money invested in this to give up easily.
I would love to get this done the easy way, so would you be willing to swap gedcom's with me? This will enable me to get going much faster than if I have to compile it from scratch.
I will contine to let you know the results of my efforts, if you are interested.
Thanks for your help.
