RootsMagic 3.2.2

April 29, 2006

The Windows genealogy software package, RootsMagic 3, has been updated to version 3.2.2. RootsMagic retails for $29.99, and runs on Windows XP, 95, 98, ME, NT, and 2000.

This is just a minor update. FTM “family notes” now import properly when doing direct FTM import. Other minor tweaks were made to the application as well.

Brother’s Keeper 6.2.17

April 26, 2006

Brother’s Keeper version 6.2.17 came out yesterday. Brother’s Keeper is a Windows genealogy application, and this is a free update for existing Brother’s Keeper 6.x users. If you already have BK installed on your PC, check the “Help” and then “About” menus to see what version you have. This update consisted of three fixes and a change/update for Brazillian users.

– Fixed a problem where if a person had more than one spouse, and if you had a Family Note attached to one couple, then you changed to another spouse and added another Note, it would sometimes duplicate the same Note for both spouses.
– Sometimes on the Book reports, in the Norwegian version, if a couple was set up with a Common Law marriage, it would print the word “med” twice.
– When printing the Ahnentafel Book report, if you selected the option to have Notes printed with a blank line before and after each note, it was printing too many blank lines after.

– The Backup routine will also work with Windows XP Brazilian version.

GRAMPS 2.0.11-RC2

April 19, 2006

GRAMPS 2.0.11 RC-2 was released yesterday. GRAMPS is a GNOME genealogy program for Linux and FreeBSD that allows you to easily build and keep track of your family tree. This is considered an “unstable” release as it’s not the final release for 2.0.11.

It can be downloaded from here or

I was waiting to hear what the changes in the RC2 release were before posting this, but the RC series should be relatively stable to begin with (since it’s a Release Candidate), and I’ll just update this when we hear more.
