Iris Moose,

I can only speak for my own 'goal'.  I have used the electronic 
versions of past checklists for looking up not just a description of 
the cv in question, but whether/how it has been a successful parent 
and what progeny it has produced.  When you type in a name, that info 
comes up as well in the parent names if the progeny are within that 
timeframe.  This is hugely helpful to me in deciding what parents I 
might need for what possible end in hybridizing.  Parentage in the 
printed text is limited to that cv only.
