Legacy Family Tree update available (7.0.0.86)

We have a great new update for you to download. This update adds new options for book reports and fixes some minor problems you have reported.

What's New

Book Reports

  • Enabled the inclusion of the address for individuals. (Previously only the address for the birth, chr, death, and burial were available.)
  • Added a new option to start each generation on an odd numbered page.
  • Added a new option to start the Table of Contents on an odd numbered page.
  • When the Other Spouses option is turned off, meaning you only want one spouse shown for each person, we now include the Preferred Spouse instead of the first spouse.
  • Moved the "son/daughter of Fred and Mary Smith" part of the marriage phrase before the marriage date and location.
  • Name Index Report - § now shows up in front of married name variations.
