re your posting where you say that
" iFamily is worthless for such work once the data entry is done " unquote .....
I think that should be rephrased to iFamily was not the correct type of program to have used to do this sort of work ....as a one name study not quite the same as doing family pedigrees
you may be interested in and get some advice from http://www.one-name.org/publit/IntroducingTheGuild.pdf
The Guild of One-Name Studies is the premier
genealogical society for one-name studies. A one-name
study is a project researching facts about a surname
and the people who have held it, as opposed to a
particular pedigree (ancestors of one person) or
descendancy (descendants of one person or couple).
