This offer is a bargain: Progeny Software is giving away free copies of both the Social Security Death Index and the company's World Place Finder. Both products contain huge databases on CD-ROM disks. In this case, the word free means "almost free" as the company does ask for payment of the postage charges.
Of course, the Social Security Death Index (SSDI) is available in many places on the web. However, having your own copy on a CD results in much higher speed operation, producing quicker results. Progeny's SSDI CD is unique because all 61-million names fit on a single CD. This may not seem like much of a difference unless you have used another company's version of the same data that fits on multiple disks. You soon feel like a Las Vegas gaming table dealer as you shuffle the various disks in and out. Progeny Software's product eliminates the problem.
Progeny's SSDI CD normally sells for $29.95. You can read more about it at http://www.progenysoftware.com/socialsecuritydeathindex.html.
World Place Finder normally sells for $14.95. Together, these two products sell for about $45.00 (U.S.) but Progeny Software is giving them away for only the cost of postage: $6.00 if sent to a U.S. address, $10.00 for shipment to other countries.
This offer will expire on February 28, 2006.
