Have you ever been so excited about something that you just had to tell the world? When my wife and I learned that we were expecting our first baby girl, we decided we weren't going to tell anyone - family included - about it until the baby was born. Well, that secret lasted for less than one day.
In our excitement about announcing our new FamilySearch integration tools and receiving official certification status from FamilySearch, we were reminded by Gordon Clarke, FamilySearch Software Affiliate Manager, that to be "officially certified" we have to have the product shipping.
So...we have finished the software requirements for the Access certification and are now working to complete the remaining requirements for Access, Update and Sync certifications. When these are completed we will release version 7.5 of Legacy.
After we return from our 6th annual Legacy Genealogy Cruise (we leave in two days...) we will publish suggestions about how to best prepare for working with the updated software (merging, cleaning up and standardizing your data). I look forward to working with it as a means of having a synchronized backup copy of my Legacy family file online. We will be able to selectively publish our trees as well as view and compare others' information - all without leaving Legacy.
Speaking of announcements, my wife and I are expecting again.... No, not really. I just wonder what she would say if she read this article....
