Family Historian 6 is the latest version of the powerful, award-winning genealogy program with comprehensive features designed to meet the needs of the beginner and expert alike.

Version 6 is a huge update for Family Historian, both in terms of features and usability, as they have teamed up with MyHeritage to add automatic internet data matching. This means that as you use the program, Family Historian automatically finds matching records on MyHeritage databases - from more than 6 billion records.

They've also added a Web Search workspace window, and a new web clipping capability, to make it easy to transfer all the information you find into your project, with full source citations. We've added best-of-breed mapping in another new workspace window, the Map Window, so that users can easily see events marked on maps, and use the Time Slider to observe changes over time.

The Media Window has been completely redesigned and now includes a new Media Link tool, to make linking people to faces in pictures much quicker and easier than before, and there is a new Automatic Source Citation pane, to help with adding source citations. And there's much more.

The program has been given a complete refresh, with a great new look and numerous usability improvements. There is a long list of important enhancements and great new features, and the list below give you a summary of some of them.

    'Family Historian 6' loaded quickly from the provided CD and contained a sample family tree which was easy to locate. Using the brief guide provided and this 'Sample Project', it proved to be quite easy to navigate the key program functions and experiment with different features. Data entry, plotting different family tree views, inserting reference sources, and adding photos and documents have been made very simple with this user-friendly software.
