It looks as if I was able to resolve the problem I was having with
Cyrillic. The problem was that I was joining pedigrees in a kind of
unusual way. Cyrillic was allowing me to make connections between
individuals that already existed on the pedigree. Do not do this,
the output files will be all wrong. Instead Cyrillic should only be
letting people start from one individual and making relations
starting at that individual and new relations from each succeeding
In addition when generating the output to mlink if you select the option
to use your assigned ID numbers, it appears that it assigns the numbers
wrong sometimes. However, if you let Cyrillic assign the numbers it does
The implications of these problems are very serious. So data should be
scrutinized when it is exported from Cyrillic.
