The first eight tabs of the 'Family Tree' drop-down menu are for each of my grandparents and each of Lizzie's grandparents. They have sub-menu's for each of their parents.
Each menu tab links to a page listing chronological source material from that ancestral branch of the family. They are jpg's for photographs and pdf's for documents.
The photo's are scanned in 256 greyscale at hi-res and the documents are mostly scanned at a resolution of 300dpi in 1 bit.

The Software I use
I started using Family Origins 4 software in 1998 and have upgraded to Roots Magic http://www.rootsmagic.com
(I occaionally also use Family Tree Maker to make charts)
I transcribe all the info I get from certificates, census, wills, newspaper clippings etc into the notes section of Roots Magic.

Gedcom File
When Roots Magic is installed on your computer it creates a number of files, when you enter info to the program it stores the data in differant places. A gedcom file on the other hand is a single text file, which has all the info you have submitted within it. You can look at it and see everything with Notepad.
