and how do you get the log in and password if you arent' a member of the chuch?

C. - thanks for the question. We'll make this easier in a new update coming really soon. For now, go to https://ldsaccount.lds.org/site/register-choice2?s_tnt=59181:7:0 to create the account. We were pointing to an old link.

Note that as far as I can see, only Ancestry.ca has the 1921 Census. When I tried to access from my paid account for the U.S. Ancestry version, it prompted me to upgrade to a World subscription instead.

Love the updated functions! Keep up the great work. Thank you all so very much!

Marianne - if you go to Ancestry.ca I believe the census images are still free to view.

Does Family Tree automatically capture my family tree if I go to site through Legacy program? I hope I have option of saying if I want to share it.

Sue - no, nothing is automated. Legacy will never publish/share any of your data unless you want to and intentionally click on the share button for the data you wish to share.

I just downloaded the Legacy update and tried to verify a name on Family Search. I get the verification but I can't download the new information to my tree. What do I need to do for that?

Ken - click on the Share Data tab, and then click on the arrow on the FamilySearch side next to the data that you want to copy to your file.

Thank you for the quick response to the 1921 Canadian census. I am looking forward to the new functionality in Ver 8!

It would be nice if you had a webinar or a video of a presentation made to a user group on how to use the new FamilyTree integration tools.

Thanks for updating them. A lot of us are excited to use these updated tools. It also helps us tell others that Legacy FamilyTree is the best software program.

I'm aware that Gedcom files--even though they do not "show" living members of a tree--still carry the information and, to anyone or any program that knows the structure of such files, that information can be released with all the other dead tree members data. What is your privacy policy in this regard? If we "share" data with your cloud trees, are the living members names and dates shared with the cloud even if they are not made visible ordinarily?

Prescott - Legacy does not share a GEDCOM with FamilySearch's family tree. If you choose to share information about a living person, that information is only visible to you online. Private information is not public. You'll also notice in Legacy's GEDCOM area that there is a section devoted to privacy where you can suppress all details for living individuals.

Kent - good idea. I'll work on scheduling a webinar and producing some video tutorials.

Geoff, I'll second that request for "Watch Geoff Live" as he matches several of his family members. I was up until late last night - you know how addictive this is - matching family members and transferring data both ways.

I've been using FamilySearch FT since last year, but I've only transferred a few members of the 18,000 I have on Legacy because it is so difficult manually. Last night was a dream because it goes so quickly. Thanks for the updates.

YAY!!! I've been waiting for this update for a couple of months. Happy Birthday to me!
