UP Dating Address Book:

After MANY years of looking I think I have finally found an Address book Program that I like

For ALL you folks that need to work on cleaning up or wanting to organized your ADDRESS book.  Check out this APP and Web Program that I have found and used.

It’s called FULL Contact. (


It links with your E-mail address book and phone and keeps everything sync up. I even was able to tag everyone in my address book into areas so I can find folks faster. For example, Like All my family members that fall under the Fredrickson, Heczko, Phillips, and West family tree are under one tag and all my High School Classmates tag and so on and so forth.

It has taken me over 4 months to do the 1st part of the cleaning but it is finally done. (I went from 2300 to 812 Contacts) for I had a LOT of Dups and screwed up address. NOW onto the last phase. I will be taking each tag group and making sure I have there correct information in it. Like Home address, main e mail address, Cell phone number, Home number Birthday dates and Anniversaries.    I am hoping to have this part done by the end of the Year. I so I can start and wrap up my next BIG Project before April of 2017.

SO if you want and can E mail me you’re the Following information to my Personal E mail address.

(Which is on G Mail if you don’t have it, let me know and I will  send it to you.)
