WEBTrees Help database

We use the WEBtrees software for the Great New Mexico Pedigree Database. This software offers many charts, graphs, and search capabilities that you will find very useful. Unfortunately no tutorial or written instruction exists for WEBTREES.  If you need help using WEBTREES you may schedule a one-on-one telephone conversation with Marlin.  Contact him at the e-mail address listed on the DATABASE page.
