Members Research Section

The Members Research Section is for current paid members of the NOA. This section contains electronic copies, in .pdf format, of all the past newsletters since the NOA began. A tremendous amount of genealogical information can be found within these newsletters. Many include new member inquires, obituaries, births, and other tidbits of information about our extended Odom family.

GEDCOM FILE PROJECT

LAST CHANCE TO SEND GEDCOM FILES (for their inclusion in NOA’s “common file”) Please do it now!!! (So far, I have only six.) (The instructions below are for Family Tree Maker. Your program will, however, instruct you on how to create a GEDCOM file. Create: 1. Open your family tree program. 2. Go to File — Export File — Selected Individuals. 3. Type or Locate name of oldest individual of YOUR family. 4. Hit OK. 5. Type name for file, and select GEDCOM as file type. NOTE: You may choose a different file destination at this point also. 6. Click Save. Check: 1. You may choose to check the file to be sure that the names included are the names you wish — or to edit them at this point. 2. Simply open this file in your family tree, make any changes you wish, and save the file...again in GEDCOM format. Send: 1. Open your email account to Send An Email. 2. Type in dodom@panhandle.rr.com in the Send To space. 3. Type GEDCOM file in the subject line. 4. Attach the file. 5. Hit Send. 6. Whamo! You did it! Wasn’t that easy? Response: 1. Before you know it, I’ll send you a very friendly “Thank You!” note. 2. Then, at the upcoming gathering in Eufaula, you, along with every other NOA member who did the same, will be asked to name the file, AND be privileged to access the file for research — which will now include lots and lots of new Odom names. Thanks, Durl
