We have a great new update for you to download. This update adds new FamilySearch fields in preparation for our integration with their new system, some GEDCOM tools, and a new SourceWriter template. It also fixes a few minor problems you have reported.
FamilySearch - Added new field to handle the new FamilySearch individual number. This is now imported and exported and displayed in the Individual's Information screen.
LDS - added new confirmation and initiatory fields on the LDS Ordinance Information screen. (You must have "Display LDS Information" turned on at Options > Customize > General tab.) You can also search for people with missing confirmation and initiatory information in Legacy's Search screen. Here's an example of how you would do this:
On the Detailed Search tab (Search > Detailed Search tab) add these conditions:
- Look for whom column: Individual
- Where to look column: LDS Conf. Date
- How to look column: Equal to
- What to look for column: [leave this blank]
When you click the Create List button at the bottom, you will get a list of all persons who is missing the confirmation date. Do similar searches for the confirmation place, and the initiatory date/place.
GEDCOM Export - Added a new option on the Items to Include in GEDCOM screen (click Customize from the GEDCOM Export screen): Don't convert British Quarter dates to a date range. If a user wants to keep the quarter dates in the GEDCOM, he/she has to select this option each time an export is done (the setting is not saved).
GEDCOM Import - Legacy now prompts the user when unrecognized media paths are encountered, letting the user specify where the files are really located.
SourceWriter: new templates for Voter Rolls
Reports - The user can now include the date in either the Compiler information OR the Credit information at the bottom of each page. Previously the date was only available with the Credit information.
Timelines - updated the "Confederate States of America" timeline
Timelines - updated the "US States and Territories - Dates of Organization and Admission" timeline
