I have another idea about sharing genealogy.
I’ve had a few members of my immediate family express interest in the ‘family history’. Now, that may seem simple to them but I’m not sure what they mean and I get a brain twist going on every time. … [continued]
1. can you create a cemetery list in legacy family tree
I put my cemeteries under Burial Address which puts them into the Master Event Address List. If you do too and you want a list for one cemetery it’s easy. Just choose the cemetery, click Show List and then Create Search List. It will show up in the Name List and you can print it from there. … [continued]
Taking a tour through LTools I decided to try the option of ‘Find Unattached Multimedia’.
(LTools is a small piece of software augmenting Legacy Family Tree with options that are not yet available otherwise.) … [continued]
After a few days of playing around with the new FamilySearch integration in Legacy Family Tree, it suddenly occurred to me that the total number of people I was working my way through was not correct. It said, as it does on the Home screen, 10,827. That’s the total including a disconnected tree. … [continued]
Last night I watched two hours of Geoff Rasmussen explaining the new FamilySearch integration with Legacy Family Tree. … [continued]
Several of you have asked for Legacy tips.
Well, it’s your lucky day. Mine, too. I don’t even have to come up with something on my own. There’s a section in the Help System actually called Tips and Tricks. If you click on Help/Contents and look under ‘Using Legacy’ it says ‘Tips and Tricks’. It’s divided into about 20 sections. Most of it’s a wall of text without pictures so it takes a fair bit of concentration.
But the first category called ‘General Tips and Tricks’ is different. It goes through the various screens with numbered items showing you different things you can do.
Do you know there are at least 7 locations in Legacy for saving and reloading clipboard contents?

- Focus Groups (9)
- Interview Questions (unlimited)
- Searches (unlimited)
- Source Clipboard (10)
- To-Do Clipboard (10)
Legacy 7.0 is here!
The Source Writer and the Maps are the largest new features that are presently available. We’re still waiting for the integration with FamilySearch.
I decided to start with the new Search options. There’s a new page of options for Missing Sources and one for Missing Information, as well as some new items added to the already existing tabs. … [continued]
Now in its 10th year, Legacy Family Tree (now Legacy 7.5) contains dozens of significant new features and enhancements, including the first-ever SourceWriter, automated family mapping, and brilliant wall charts.
Legacy Family Tree 7 offers these new features:
* 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. … [continued]
If you’re not using Legacy’s Research Guidance, you’re missing half the show.
I’ve been missing half the show. Research Guidance, as the name suggests, is about being organized. I tried it when Legacy 6.0 first came out and gave it up because it made me claustrophobic. All of my family history has been put together so far by my being chronically side-tracked. I am genetically incapable of working in a straight line. In Grade Two I was chastised for putting curly-cues on my handwriting.
Deep breath. Basically, what it does is suggest where to search, (which you can do right on the spot) or give you a button to add a search item to your To-Do List. Later, you can filter the To-Do List to get focused in one category, database or geographical area.
