I bought a geneology programme called Gene Genie in 1989 (I kid you not) and now has over 4000 names on the data base after 25 years of research. It came on two 720 floppy disks (remember them?) which I still have! and it set up a batch file when installing.
The programme has directories like SURNAME.NTX, PERSONS, SOURCES and TREEDAT etc.
When a new persons name is added it creates a file called NOTE(number of person).MEM.
My problem is the programme only runs on 32 bit processors and although I have bought many computers since 1989 I have had to keep my first one just to run this Genie programme. This computer has finally thrown its hand in and I can't access anything, the good thing is because the Genie programme was very important to me I have a full back up on 1.44 disc's (the old computer only had an 'A' drive).
I need advise from a clever person who can tell me how to install this DOS programme on Windows 8.1, help.
Thanks in anticipation.
