Karen, you need to download the transcription soft ware, go to the freecens home page,on the left you will see TRANSRIPTIONS, underneath it says "software to do it",click on that,it will take you to TRANSCRIPTION SOFTWARE, click on sscens,then click on,download sscen specifications.hope this helps. chris.

Received the disc this morning. Let the battle begin - between me and my son. He is an ebayer and on and off the pc whenever he is home!! I think I might begin a booking scheme. The same as they operate at the library. Kathy

A little tip I find useful have Genuki on so you can refer to parishes and places when you can't read the writing some times it helps. Ann,doing 1861 Darlington

I received an email from my co-ordinater on the 15/3 and received the cd today. Pretty quick. Bit weird though as I requested Devon and it was the Devon co-ordinater who contacted me. But, I have had a look at the cd and it is for Southwark, London!? I have emailed Terry, the devon co-ordinater. Jeanette, Yer, I'll take your advice and pull rank. But, I'm only 5'4" and he is a 6 footer. Meanwhile we have to set up our new washing machine after my one started, 'Smoking', this morning! Kathy
