Dangerous temptations in genealogical research

Legacy Family Tree update available (

We have a great new update for you to download. This update adds new blank census forms for England, Wales, and Ireland, some "handy" additions to the SourceWriter, and fixes a few minor problems you have reported. Many of the additions/changes are the direct result of your suggestions - thanks everyone!

What's New

Forms Center - added blank forms for the 1911 Census of England and Wales, and forms A & N for the 1911 Ireland census

Search - Added a new "This Couple Did Not Marry" to the Marriage Detailed search. This lets you create a list of all couples who have the "This couple did not marry" option checked on their Marriage Information screen.

SourceWriter - We've added a new "Today's Date" button next to the Date Accessed field, making it even easier to fill in the date.

Changed Items

Expand/Contract Locations (View > Master Lists > Location > Options > Expand/Contract) - If USA is on the end of your location and you select the option to Add ", United States" we now change ", USA" to ", United States". In the past you had to first remove the USA and then add the United States.

Sources - In the Source Detail, we now separate the "required" fields of a citation from the optional surety level, etc. to make it easier to know what information belongs to the citation

US County Verification - A few updates and changed were made to the US Historical County database.
