Legacy Family Tree, Plus FamilySearch, 1940 US Census Enhancements

Millenia, the folks behind Legacy Family Tree, a popular Windows genealogy application, have made a couple of significant updates to Legacy Family Tree.

First off, everybody here in the US is probably aware of the 1940 US Federal Census being released in April. Ahead of that, Legacy Family Tree has added support for two 1940 US Federal Census forms – both the regular form (standard), and the Supplementary Questions form (you can see examples at the Legacy Family Tree website).

These are located under:
Reports -> Books/other tab -> Forms Center -> Census Forms -> US Federal -> 1940

Also, Milleniia has added some FamilySearch enhancements. There is a new AutoMatch feature which can automatically match or link individuals in your LFT database with individuals on FamilySearch. LegacyFamilySearch can now be started with just the current person rather than loading a full database.

Version (Build 16 February 2012) Changes
* Reports – Fixed a problem of loading user settings.
* Sources – Fixed a problem with a couple of source templates.
