You know some of us are barely hanging on to the edge of our seat as it is, and now this...If I weren't old enough to be the parent here, I'd have a temper tantrum right about...

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA I want Legacy7 nnnooooooooooowwww!

LOL...Happy New Year!

When is Legacy 7 going to be released?

Dan, we're working really hard to get it done in the next couple of months. It always seems to take longer than we'd hope, and we thank everyone for their patience.

I would like to wish everyone at Legacy the Best for 2008! Gosh, you guys/gals do a GREAT job for us!

Keep it up...........while we await Legacy 7!

Jim

Gosh! Sourcing and Charting! and now you tell us there is more!!!!! How can you tease us like this.
Happy Happy New Year

Thank You, Geoff. Legacy is the best program that I have used for my family history. I am really looking forward to Legacy 7. You guys do an awesome job! Thank you.

Thanks for creating and continually improving such a powerful yet easy to use program. I am really looking forward to the sourcing templates for Legacy 7, and anything more will just be icing on the cake!

I am so looking forward to the new source templates! I can't wait to get all of my sources standardized. I know it will be a lot of work to go back and fix all my mistakes but it sounds like the templates will make it fairly painless.

I love using Legacy! I've been a user since version 2.0 and I am really excited about the release of the newest version. If I had my way, FHCs would encourage patrons to use Legacy instead of the one they do. I have "converted" several!

Great job!

"If you thought wall charts and source templates were big, wait until you hear about Legacy 7's biggest new feature....We haven't leaked the news to anyone yet....and I didn't get permission to do it here...."

That is just plain cruel, Geoff!

michele :)

I think about Legacy 7 every single day! I have wanted to send an email inquiring about its release date - then decided you were probably inundated with similar requests. I decided to just wait. We were all hoping for November or December. Now it is January and you are telling us a couple more months? I agree with the person above - I want it now!! :-)

. . . OK, I will wait.

A very satisfied customer,

Happy New Year and thanks to all at Millenia for your great programme and your prompt help when I have needed it. May your brick walls fall soon.
I too am waiting patiently (at least I am trying to be patient) for Legacy 7 but in the meantime - while I wait - I can do a bit more indexing. I have truly benefited from many indexes and databases so it helps to make me feel I am returning some of the past effort put in by others.
Have a great year.

So, why is it that you can tell us some features, but not the biggest one?

Most of us can't wait until Legacy 7 comes out. However, we don't want the fiasco that FTM 2008 created. Do it right folks.
A Legacy user since version 2.

in the next edition, how about including the option of 'say' as a date identifier the way NEHGS often does? For example: 'say 1848' - 'Circa' and 'About' and 'Between' all imply a strong basis for estimation of the date; 'say' makes it clear that the person creating the record has made an assumption for timeline purposes or to separate generations, etc....

Love Legacy and want it to continue to be the best!

Just want to second all of the above comments. Legacy is an awesome genealogy program -- I don't know how you all manage to anticipate just about any and all questions or problems faced by your faithful followers! Can't wait for Legacy 7 (well, yes, I suppose I can) :-)

Happy New Year Millenia staff!! Geoff I love your teaching style and am anxiously awaiting Legacy 7 and Deluxe version and you teaching tools. WOW what a motivator to get more active in the hunt!
You and the Millenia staff are a true inspiration.
Hugs to you all!

Well, I for one am very glad that Legacy 7 will be adding significant charting capabilites. I also agree that Millenia should not create the "fiasco" with Legacy 7 that Ancestry has done, and continues to do, with what they call "FTM 2008". However, the chart that Geoff teased everyone with looked pretty impressive to me. I say clean up Legacy 7 now and make it nice and releasable by the end of January. Then add the rest of the new features to a subsequent release 7.5 that can come out a few months later.

Then watch the customers roll in as folks switch from FTM even faster than they have in the past. IMO Ancestry/TGN has blown it badly and poisoned their own market. There is a real opportunity for Millenia to "steal a march" on TGN and become the market leader, but only if they get signficant charting capability on the market with Legacy 7 before TGN fixes "FTM 2008".

Yes, charting within Legacy 7 will be usefull - especially if it will work with large printers, as I have access to a HP 1050C which will printout to A0 size, or even to 841mm (33 inches for you in the USA) by as large as you need it to be.

As a developer, the one thing that I would like is a set of interfaces, so that my own programs can access the Legacy database without need to use a GEDCOM as an interface. I know that MS Access can open the Legacy database, so I suspect that it is actually a .mdb file format, even though called .ldb. But an interface and documentation would be much more useful.

Legacy is an awesome program and just seems to get better every time it's released. I'm still waiting on one feature I requested a while back...to be able to find a woman by married name (Ex. find all Mary's who married a Mr. Smith)Right now, that option doesn't exist in Detailed Search, but would be incredibly helpful. Please consider it for Legacy 7....please???

I am also pleased with Legacy and am looking forward to the update. My suggestion is more flexiblity with GPS coordinates. Keep up the good work.

In the new examples for sourcing will there be one for surname-driven sourcing rather than location or source-driven sourcing? It would be nice to be able to choose if you wish to use location or surname. I prefer to index sources by surname rather than location or source.

I second the request for a method to sort all female entries by their married names. This is the only feature of Family Tree Maker that I have truly missed. I know this can be done by sorting by the first name, then checking each woman's marriage data, but the simpler way would be great!

There was a post a few weeks back about Calendar Creator and the request that holidays be added. Your comment was that this might be added in the next version. I also would like to see holidays added, and in addition, would like the opportunity to send the calendar to my word processor as well as create a PDF file. We have this option for many of our reports. I like to personalize the dates, i.e. red color for my immediate family birthdays, blue color for our siblings, nieces, nephews etc. At the moment, I create my calendar in Word which makes doing this very easy. If this option were in Legacy, it would be wonderful. Thank you for your consideration.

I second the developer who would like to use this information in my own files. I would love it if Legacy 7 can import/export GEDCOM 6.0 files so the files would automatically be in an XML format.

No matter what, I love this product and can't wait for the new version! :D

I support the married name request, at least for searching and listing. It's something that is present in some other products.
There are those on my tree who have changed by deed poll, and I'd also like to select a different "AKA" as the "display name" for different stages of a person's life - automatically.

As a Software Test Analyst - I don't suppose this would allow me a sneak preview of Legacy 7? Please? I could be a Beta tester? Please nicely?

Like everyone else... I'll just keep waiting...

Luv ya work!

Jill
