It can certainly take a lot of time to input records into genealogy software. There are over 15 000 individuals in my database and probably another 5 000 to 10 000 to enter yet. Slowly but surely it is all being compiled in the one place (with backups of course), or rather, software program/file. I’m hoping that in another 12-18 months I’ll have a completed product/book – not that it will all be up to date of course, as it keeps changing with births, deaths and marriages, but at least there will be something available to provide some background to the family’s history.
Once the information is entered there will need to be some reviewing of it, but that will also be an ongoing process.
