Pedigree View – You can turn on or off the display of the Child/Spouse list and the Siblings list boxes by right clicking on the background area of the Pedigree View and selecting to Show or Hide them.
USA Historical County Database – we updated a few of the counties.
Web Page – The “Home page title:” setting on the Project tab is now used exactly as the user types it. In the page we were adding the starting persons name to this text which meant that users didn’t have a way of hard coding a title if they were using the option to “Include the main name from each page as the page’s title.”. This option will still work for all other pages but the starting person’s name is no longer appended to the “Home page title” text.
