All this source material is still in boxes after my move from San Jose to Sutter Creek, CA. I need to have my library room painted and a new carpet installed before I bring in boxes and file cabinets from storage. What a job! (Early 2008 – the carpet is in and the room is painted and the shelves are up – making progress)

All this material is on paper only, not on the computer. My intention is to send it to the appropriate chart compiler and have them enter the appropriate data into each chart. In that way, the data will be made known to the internet, plus I will reduce my papers at home. Be patient, this will take time. I didnŐt realize I had so much data Respectively, Mara French
