MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT:
Itís been a pivotal couple of months for us at The Jefferson
Project! We had the satisfaction of finally releasing Family History CDís
big brother, Passage Express. We took two years enhancing it and adding
features that our customers have requested along with things which we
would want to use ourselves. We were very excited to release it last month
and so far indications are that you are pleased as well. We want to thank
those who have reported problems that needed our attention. We have and
will continue to respond to these types of things as quickly as possible.
-- Keep an eye on our updates page at
for what is happening in the latest software updates.
-- Also check out our new Resources / Support link at
http://www.passageexpress.com/support/PESupport.php We have
added a number of useful items that may help you get started and answer
questions you may have. We have strived to keep the "simpleness" that made
Family History CD so popular, while making it much more powerful with many
new options. Although we feel that we have achieved that goal, we are
always on the lookout for ways to make the software more user friendly.
Because of feedback from customers like you, we are currently working on a
new, more user-friendly, main menu for Passage Express that will be a part
of your free updates.
There are many new features that you can find when you explore the
software. These newsletters are here to help you get the most out of
Passage Express, and help you tailor your projects exactly the way you
want them. Youíll find tips on how to quickly and easily build and tweak
your data. Each newsletter will have a poll, so that YOU can help shape
the future of Passage Express. Todayís poll is a quick one liner at the
end of this newsletter. We appreciate your input. The Jefferson Project is
excited to contribute to the world of family history, and our goal, as
always, is to help all of you share your hard work with your families and
help light the fire within them as well.

President, The Jefferson Project
