Wow, what a fascinating report! I have to admit that this is probably something I would never have thought of. Thanks to you and all your fine developers for such a great program.

Wow - what a cool feature! And a great addition to a family book. I hope those programmers are working around the clock. Meanwhile, we can all be inspired to clean up our master location list (you're right, Geoff, about those early imports before we knew better).

I have the new Legacy Family Tree Unlocked PDF and waiting for the book.
Great job as always on making things simple to follow.
Now of course, I have to anxiously wait for the new Version 8 so I can get using the new features.

BUG On the last graph by States - When did South Africa become a state?

Larry - it still lists all locations, including other countries, but there is an option for the U.S. to include the states if desired.

Hi Geoff
Can you go down a level in countries other than the states? It would be great to be able to go to county level in the UK. If not, maybe this could be an enhancement for the future? A very interesting and unexpected report, this. As others have commented, this will look great in books.

Again, it all looks interesting and I can not wait until it come out, but is there a similiar breakdown option for non-US states - ie: Canadain Provinces & Territories; English/Wales/Scotish/Ireland Counties; and for all other countries etc.?

I think that's my favorite so far!

C. - good idea, I'll make sure it is in our enhancement request database for future consideration/implementation.

Could you also include Australian States and Territories as well?

Wendy - you bet, I'll add that to the suggestion also.

Can't wait to actually get the new version. Will Legacy 8 still work with Telgen's Families app?

John - yes, Legacy 8 will work with the Families app.

Hopefully New Zealand will be included in the breakdown too?

Will Legacy Charting be enhanced in Version 8?

Jim - yes, there are some new charts and features in Legacy Charting 8. Maybe I'll write about them next....

Seeing that South Africa is at least in your charts ;) ; will there be a breakdown for South Africa's provinces as well? I really hope so!


I'm like an excited kid waiting for Christmas for Legacy 8!

All of the countries are included, it's just the break-down of the lower jurisdictions that is currently only available for the U.S. Regardless, even at the country level, including the U.S., they're great reports, aren't they?

This looks fantastic.

And to add my two cents worth to several of the other commenters - being able to go down to county/state/province level for other countries (and not just the English speaking ones) as well as the USA would be so helpful as most of us can trace our ancestors to quite a few different countries, and being able to go down to that level would just make it so amazing.

This is exactly what I was looking for! :) Can't wait for it! :) Thanks!

Sorry pressed the send to soon. :) Was wondering if the development team and you whomever does what (hehe) would consider adding reports/graphs of ones ancestors and cousins, aunts, and uncles. Hoping for more breakdown lists/graphs (reports) of this type. I know you have list of all related people that is great feature but less focused. Example of what I hopefully am meaning: I have large families for a few generations and its a pain to find out how many cousins (to whatever degree), great aunts and great uncles, that I have and their origins, too. The grandparents is featured now (Yay!) so maybe it can be expand. Where we can choose whom you want to include in the report/graph. (Harder to explain so I will leave that be your crew to brainstorm) Maybe it could be a part of legacy charting software section if too big for the main program. All this is a suggestion/idea. Love Legacy!

Geoff, This feature will definitely be the most FUN! I've done it "by hand" before, but this will be so much better. Thanks.
