Description
 
Legacy Family Tree has a long history of being an easy-to-use, good quality genealogy software program. Now with the release of the new Version 7, comes a new package, an Australia/New Zealand specific version.

UPGRADE ELIGIBILITY: Upgrade pricing applies if you have Legacy Deluxe Version 5 or Version 6. For this special pricing we will require evidence of purchase - copy or scan of receipt, original program disk or licence number or other evidence. If purchased from Gould Genealogy we should have a record of the purchase, but it is helpful if you indicate an approximate date of purchase.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION
Did you know that Legacy can print over 120 different styles of charts and reports? Did you know that it dynamically maps all the places your ancestors lived? Did you know that Legacy has five different styles of websites to publish, and allows the user to create sharable CDs or DVDs? and that Legacy also allows the user to record and print DNA charts? But this is just the beginning ...

Anyone looking for software to simplify, organise and publish their genealogy research -- and do it all well -- will find Legacy Family Tree to be one of the best. The user-friendly navigation and myriad features have been enhanced in this latest version with a new Research Guidance feature which helps you identify new resources to check and keep track of your research progress. Multiple navigation views, excellent multimedia support and new mapping, charting and interview templates round out this full-featured program.

Legacy 7.0 makes it easy to preserve your genealogical information. Family trees can be recorded, displayed and reported in a variety of styles and formats. Legacy 7.0 includes all standard genealogical reports, as well as calendars, timelines, questionnaires, research logs and a multitude of blank forms and more!

Pros

  • Standard version is FREE - but doesn't include many of the best features
  • Comes with the manual as a PDF file
  • Getting Started Tutorial is included on the CD
  • Powerful merge options & split-screen views
  • New charting incorporated within the program
  • Uses Microsoft Virtual Earth to pinpoint and map your ancestors locations
  • Works on both PC and Macintosh

Cons

  • Only imports PAF files directly - GEDCOM import/export for all other programs

NEW FEATURES IN LEGACY FAMILY TREE VERSION 7

Mapping – Use Microsoft Virtual Earth to automatically pinpoint and plot important locations in ancestors’ lives from within Legacy. See 3-D, satellite and bird’s eye images of where your ancestors lived. Now it is easy to track your ancestor’s migration.

Wall Charts - Experience the enjoyment of showing off your family tree by producing stunning full-color wall charts – ancestor, descendant, fan, hourglass, bow tie, and even DNA charts. Use them for your next family reunion or for a deserving wall in your home.

SourceWriter – Cite your sources easily and correctly with the new SourceWriter. SourceWriter makes it simple for you to select the correct input screen so that you enter all the pieces needed to correctly cite any source of information in the thousands of formats that exist for them. The information you enter is correctly and precisely formatted to match the genealogy industry standards for source citations when printing footnotes, endnotes, and bibliographies. Multiple citations for an event can be combined into one paragraph, thus avoiding a long string of superscripted numbers within the report body.

Interview Reports – Choose from over 1,200 carefully pre-written interview questions and memory triggers to help you capture your family’s memories before it is too late.

Guided Setup Wizard - Getting started with Legacy is even easier now. The new guided setup wizard takes you by the hand and guides you through the setup process in an easy-to-understand way.

New Relationship Calculator - See how any two people are connected, not only through direct blood relationships but also by marriage. A person might be the "great-grandfather of the wife of your 2nd great-grandnephew. You can also specify how many of these non-blood relationships you want to see.

More Powerful Searching – Searching your Legacy data is easier than ever before. You can now search for individuals that are missing parts of names, birth or death information, marriage information and much more. You can also search for missing source citations as you document your family files.

Now Attach Any Document to Individuals and Marriages - Along with attaching pictures, sounds, and video to individuals, events, locations, and sources, you can now also attach any other kind of document (PDFs, Word files, etc.).

Enhanced Backups - Legacy can now backup your family file and multimedia files at the same time, making it easier to transfer everything to another computer.

Edit Records from the "Used By" Lists - All of the master lists in Legacy have an option to view the individuals who use the items in the list. You can now edit those individuals right from the list instead of having to exit the list and edit them separately.

Standardization Tips – New alerts will appear if something questionable has been entered in the Individual's Information screen. This helps users keep their data standardized.

Privacy - enhanced privacy options ensure that only the information you want to share will be visible to others.

Best Fit Child Columns - The new Best Fit option in the Family View expands or contracts the child list columns to fit the number of children for the current couple. No more trying to guess the optimum number of child columns. Legacy does it for you.

HOW DOES THIS DIFFER FROM LEGACY FAMILY TREE 7 DELUXE?
In short ... it doesn't ... this one just comes with extras. The program is the same in both packages, and this comes with the manual in PDF form, as opposed to a printed one available with Legacy Family Tree 7 Deluxe. The Australia/New Zealand edition will come as a boxed product, and will include the following as extras available in this version of Legacy only:

  • Australian Shipping 1788-1968 (CD) - A collection of over 240,000 arrivals and departures of ships at Australian ports between 1788 and 1968
  • Australian Handbook 1904 (CD) - 1008 pages packed with all kinds of useful and interesting information relating to Australia in 1904
  • New Zealand Post Office Directory 1900 (Wise) (CD) - A valuable resource of names, addresses and occupations of those in New Zealand in 1900
  • Online Resources (CD) - A directory of some of the best genealogy sites in Australia, New Zealand and around the world
  • Online Learning Centre - Useful tips and resources to help you with all your genealogy needs
