Brother’s Keeper 6.2.48
June 21, 2007
Brother’s Keeper saw a nice update earlier this month – version 6.2.48 that handles latitude and longitude in GEDCOM files. Brother’s Keeper is a Windows genealogy application, $45 for new users, $20 for upgrades. It has a strong emphasis on charts and reports.
* You can export/import latitude and longitude to/from gedcom files. The latitude and longitude fields are extra fields for each location when you double click a location name on the Edit screen.
* In addition to the fix in 6.2.47 for alphabetical listing, it also fixes the problem if the husband has an alternate name and the wife has only the first name.
* The French translation now has “Evenement” instead of “Inventaire Apres Deces”. If you want “Inventaire Apres Deces” then add it as a custom event name.
* Fixed a bug regarding making a Register book with pictures and sending it to an RTF file for Word. In the special case where you have a child that has a picture, but has no events, you would sometimes get an error loading the RTF into Word that said “the document name or path is not valid.”
