Since upgrading to version 6, I am unable to sort children by birth year. Any solutions?


To sort the children, click on the View menu, then click on Children List.

Click on the Sort button on the right.

I have the delux 6 version and do not seem to find the Legacy Home the top of the screen; help please. -caron-

It would be nice if a cemetery report could be added which would list persons by Married name with catagories for dates, spouse's, and parents. This can be done with a search report, but the surname used isn't the married name. This feature would be helpful to those of us doing cemetery surveys when most of the info. is already in our files.

Legacy Home symbol: The symbol is NOT at the top of the screen. Below the main toolbar is a series of tabs, which are not too well distinguished from the rest of the page. The first of these is "Legacy Home". Click that; then under Legacy Home tab appears the little house. You may have been told the symbol is at the top of the page, this is misleading. Hope you find it now.


You can also sort the children by right-clicking on one of the children, click Children's Settings; click Sort
