Brothers Keeper Icons

However the treatment of additional fields, with formal Sources, Notes & WITNESSES is a major boon for serious genealogists. Here are a pair of icons for those of you who still use BK5-Dos & those who desire an alternative icon for BK6. For BK5-DOS version These are 16 color, 32x32 pixel bitmaps and have the extension changed to "ico". For BK6 version Menno's Icons are actually ico files, but the pics here are bmp if you wish to use those.
