multiple names6-14-2011 by Ray Gurganus6-14-2011 by Ray Gurganus1
Someone has asked to be able to record multiple names for the same person, like when someone migrates to a different country and changes their name or the spelling of their name.  Then they would show in search results under either name.  Let me know if you have any related requests so that I can take everything into account as I plan for this.  Thanks!

It would be very useful on an individual's data-entry page, if we could click on a link that would instantly reveal a list person's entire family: both the birth family with parents and sliblings, and marriage family or families with spouses and children.  A lot of clicking and waiting could be curtailed if we could simply click on one of those names to take us to that person's page, or preferably, directly to that person's data-entry page. You might have seen this sort of thing in Ancestry's family trees.  
cheklist for legal documents10-25-2017 by JOSEPH B ROSE10-25-2017 by JOSEPH B ROSE1
I am working on my family link to the mayflower. Birth, marriage, and death certificates are hard to obtain before 1910 or earlier.

The idea of of the checklist that can be copied or transferred is great. Also when siblings are born about the same time it may show city county and state. Always a great clue
Total on Branch home page2-23-2009 by Bobby Tripp3-1-2009 by Ray Gurganus2
I like the Branch home page that lists all the surnames and gives the count.  Can you add a total to the page?  I'm curious as to how many names I have added.  Thanks, Bobby
DNA8-2-2015 by kimmer8-2-2015 by Ray Gurganus2
With Autosomal DNA research being so popular now, have you thought about adding that information to the DNA section?

Also, there does not seem to be a place for Mt DNA

Thank you,

There is a world outside the US borders. It's not enough with immigrate, you also need emigrate as event type.
Political Offices8-21-2013 by Cameron Ott8-23-2013 by Ray Gurganus2
Would it make sense to add more Cabinet positions to the Political offices list, such as Secretary of Commerce and Secretary of Education?
Compute Relationship4-8-2009 by Bobby Tripp4-9-2009 by Ray Gurganus2
Select two people and have the program identify the relationship, like third cousin twice removed.  A report could identify the common parent and descendents.
