However, as an inducement to register, the program will not produce RTF files, without entering a temporary password that lasts for the present session only. To do this, go to Help, Enter Registration Number, Reg# 1234, Password 2468, enter your name, then echo back the number requested. This will enable all registered user functions for the session. If you then go back to RTF it will function till you exit the program. Next time you wish to do an RTF file, You will have to do this again, until you register and obtain your own, permanent password. This is meant as an inducement to Register the program, while allowing full access to the program's features for those trying it out.&nbsp;</li> <li>Thank you for taking the time and trouble to participate.&nbsp; We hope that you will make many fine contacts through this listing. Please update us every few months! </li> </ul> <p>Sincerely yours,</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Mahoning Valley Genealogical Services
