A little history: Graham Crow wrote Ancestry I, which was marketed by Minerva
in the days of the Arthur Operating System; Minerva later sold Ancestry II
an entirely different Desktop program for RISCOS, but it was very expensive
and is no longer sold. Meanwhile Graham Crow wrote his own RISCOS version
which he called Ancestry, sadly he died suddenly before he could finish it.
This program, now marketed as Ancestor+, has been adapted and improved by
David Holden of APDL, details at
http://www.apdl.co.uk/ancest.htm, price to a new user about £60, look on
the web site for prices for upgrades from Ancestry I and Ancestry II
