The importer addon will allow you to import information from other applications using a Comma Separated Values file.  This is simply a text file with commas between values.  The first line simply stores the names of the variables.  Most programs that store data have an option to export a CSV file.  These files can be edited with a basic text editor or a spreadsheet program.  Here is an example of what the csv file might look like.  This example has 5 empty obituaries.  Each obituary is on it’s own line.  The first line is just the variable names.  It wraps in the browser, but in the CSV file, it should be all on it’s own line.
