******************************* * Origins II Demo V2.00 * * ©1994 by The Puzzle Factory * * All Rights Reserved * ******************************* What is Origins II? =================== Origins II is a dedicated data base manipulation program for keeping track of genealogical information. The number of records is limited in practice only by available memory and storage. You may track attributes of people, such as where and when they were born, died and were buried, marriages, and parent/ child relationships. Extra details, such as baptism, confirmation, and immigration dates, occupation, etc., for all of the persons are also allowed for. Origins is capable of maintaining files on approximately 2000 persons and 500 marriages on a single floppy data disk. Larger data bases can be constructed on a hard-disk based system. Origins II will run on any Amiga with a minimum of 1 MB of ram, under V2.0 or later of the OS. A printer is really necessary too, as you will undoubtedly want listings. If printing Pedigree Charts is desired, the printer must also support condensed (136 column) printing. Origins II is not intended to be used for religious purposes, and does not conform to standards for LDS submissions. The Ordinance file does not provide for christenings, sealings, priesthood status, or other required information. Please do not use Origins II for this purpose.

Differences between the Commercial and the Demo Versions ======================================================== This is the DEMO version of Origins II. Some functions are either disabled or missing from this version of the program. This list points out the major differences between the commercial and the demo versions: 1. In the commercial version, the number of records are basically limited only by available storage. In the demo version, the user is limited to 100 person records, 100 ordinance records, and 50 marriage records. 2. In the commercial version, if Banner.ilbm is missing, we just don't show the banner. In the demo version, if DemoBanner.ilbm is missing, we complain and exit. 3. In the commercial version, if genfile, persfile, ordfile, or marrfile is missing, they are created. In the demo version, we complain and exit. 4. In the commercial version, program files may be referenced relative to the starting directory, or by the use of logical assignments. In the demo version, program files are only referenced relative to the starting directory. 5. In the demo version, the About requester is shown as you enter the program. In the commercial version, it is shown only if requested. 6. In the commercial version, the user can increase the size of the persfile, ordfile, and marrfile. In the demo version, when calling these functions, a requester stating that these functions do not exist is displayed instead. 7. In the commercial version, if the data bases are full, the user may be automatically asked if they would like to increase the size of the data bases. Because the AutoSiz flag in User Preferences is disabled in the demo, the user will just be informed that the data bases are full. 8. In the demo version, the ARexx function, GENAPPENDRECORDS(), has the active code removed, and if there are no other errors, always returns that it added zero records. Additionally, several utilities are provided with Origins II, and are not included in the demo version. Two of these deal with GEDCOM files. ToGED is used for creating GEDCOM files from a data base, and FromGED is used for reading GEDCOM files and creating a data base. GEDCOM stands for GEnealogical Data COMmunication, and was developed by the Family History Department of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. GEDCOM is a standardized method of representing genealogical data, designed to allow transfer of information between diverse computer systems. Without it, a person might be forced to re-enter a large data base by hand merely to move their family tree from one genealogy program to another. Together, ToGED and FromGED allow you to import and export genealogical data to and from Origins. The commercial version also includes utilities that help verify that the contents of your data base is reasonably coherent. This can be a big help with some types of data entry errors.
