Sneak Peek of Legacy 7

Legacy version 7 is getting closer to its release. We're still putting on the finishing touches, and we'd like your feedback.

On Tuesday, July 31 from 5:15-6:15, we are teaching a class entitled "Sneak Peek of Legacy 7" at the 31st Annual Brigham Young University Family History and Genealogy Conference in Provo, Utah. The class is held in room 2254. Seating is limited and the class is open to the public.

On Thursday, August 2 from 5:15-6:15 we are teaching "An Overview of Legacy Family Tree" in room 2254.

If you live in the Utah Valley area and want to meet the developers of Legacy, please stop by booth #1 in the Harmon Building on BYU's campus. The vendor area is open to the public, conference registration is not required. If you've been waiting for this conference to purchase our new Magnabrite magnifiers, we'll have them there too (no shipping costs!).

More than 100 classes
More than 100 classes will be offered throughout the conference, allowing participants to gain new skills and helpful information.  Class topics include Beginning Family History, Family History Center Support, Computers and New Programs, Europe/Nordic Research, British Research, U.S. Research, Methodology, and Publishing Family Histories.  We invite you to attend the conference to learn new techniques and to build and strengthen your family ties through genealogy and family history.

I already own Legacy 6.0 Deluxe-bought about 2 months ago after using the Standard version for several years. Will I be able to upgrade to 7.0 seamlessly, or will I have to purchase again? Just wondering.

I second the user requesting a modifier for places (such as 'possibly', 'near' etc.), as well as a means to record cemetery information without having to create a second location, or storing the information as a separate 'event'. I tried putting it in the address information for the burial place - but you can't search on this address information! Very frustrating!

We'd also like to see separate sourcing for event dates versus event places. Very often we have a source that only has one or the other, but not both. Addressing this via comments or citation detail doesn't cut it.

Geoff, a lot of us are still waiting for the ability to search sources for any word or phrase. Is that function included in version 7? Just about anyone would agree that being able to search the sources for more than the first word as it is now is an essential element, not a "frill." Thanks...

Legacy programmers take note!!!!

I agree with you Stephen - the ability to search for any word contained in any master source field or any source detail field is essential. I have had many times where I needed to find a particular source or source citation and could not find it due to lack of search capability in Legacy.

I would like to have the option to connect to the internet in version 7 and not have the whole system driven by explorer. When I have had problems with the internet, then I can not even open my database.

I have just received my copy of the new Family Tree Maker 2008 and I have just one comment - Legacy is bound to get a bunch of new users, that is for sure. They have completely reworked the format and have taken out the ability to compile a "verbatim text" family history "book." They have replaced it with a Beta version that is utilized thru Ancestry.com. I now look forward more eagerly to Legacy v7.

I am using a 30 inch flat screen monitor. Most of the various views are o.k. however some like AKA entry screen is so small as to be difficult to read as are a few others. I am hoping new version will be able to cope with these larger screens with some kind of method which permits modification ability for all screen sizes.

Jack, all screens can currently be resized. Just bring your mouse to the very corner of the screen, click, and drag.

I am a 10 year FTM user until about 1 year ago I switched to RootsMagic (a good program).
I just switched again to Legacy 6 Delux and love it. The county verifier is wonderful as it has helped me update/correct thousands of addresses in my file. I also love the source clipboard, what a timesaver!
I look forward to the new Legacy 7. Keep up the good work.
