1) Bobbie (in comments) offered: "Many of us still have to create written genealogies from our data. I've got a huge one to do. I use Legacy Family Tree because it provides real footnotes that will renumber and can be moved as I edit the text. However what won't change is the numbering system. I want the ability to stop following lines by removing the individuals and have the genealogy renumber itself. Is that too much to ask?"
My comment: An example of what Bobbie would like to have would be useful.
2) Jasia said: "I'm not much interested in Legacy version 8. What I'm interested in is a mobile app from Legacy that runs on Android!"
My comment: And I would like a FREE one that runs on both Android and iOS.
3) Sholom offered several ideas in email:
* The ability to calculate non-direct blood relations are terrific! But there is no option to print out such a relation that makes any sense.
* The option to include "old style" or "new style" dates
* The keyword "say" before a date (was born "say 1750"); the keyword "probably" before a date; handling the keyword "between" in a better manner for dates.
My comment: I would like to be able to type the word "say" rather than "about" for a date, since that seems to be the modern terminology for a date guess in the periodical and book literature (e.g., NGSQ, NEHGR, TAG).
* Handling counties that change jurisdiction better. E.g., Eaton (now Wyoming) County, Pennsylvania -- the program gacks and tells me "there is no such county named 'Eaton (now Wyoming)' in Pennsylvania.
* Is there any reason why "tags" are limited to 10?
* The ability to footnote a date of birth (or any event), and place of that event, separately. There are times when I have one source for the date, and another source for the place.
