Family networking site MyHeritage.com has released version 6 of its free Family Builder software for Windows.
In general, updates include automatic research in historical records and new features for viewing and sharing family information:
- Following MyHeritage’s recent acquisition of genealogy data site World Vital Records, Family Tree Builder 6.0 adds the site’s historical content to its features. The software automatically searches for historical records relevant to the people in your family tree whenever you add or edit information. A separate World Vital Records subscription is required to view records.
- Family Builder 6.0 also improves integration with your MyHeritage.com family websit e. You can produce charts of Family Statistics (such as most commonly used first names or average lifespan), view profile pages and family timelines, and more. You also can view Family Events such as gatherings and birthdays on a monthly or yearly calendar.
The new Family Tree Builder 6.0 is available for Windows in 37 languages. Download it for free from MyHeritage.com.
