Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays to everybody – things are going to be quiet over the next week – I’ve got a new project I’m working on with a couple of people, and hopefully within a few weeks it will be ready to launch. It’s not a genealogy application (or any kind of application for that matter), but a site that will contribute to genealogy research, and will include Mac users as well (that’s the part I handle). It’s going to be unique, but I can’t say anything else at this time. I also have three reviews of genealogy applications that have been submitted by MG readers that I’m going to format and place online.

SeeGEDCOMX 0.8b4

Keith Clarke has updated SeeGEDCOMX to version 0.8b4. SeeGEDCOMX is a Mac genealogy program (requires MacOS 8.6 with CarbonLib or Mac OS X 10.1.5) with some unique features.

SeeGEDCOMX is a minimalist genealogy program for the Macintosh, started before MacOS X made minimalism fashionable. Originally a browser application for GEDCOM files, it has become a much more general application. You can now use it to create a family history from scratch, to maintain an existing family history stored as a GEDCOM document, or simply to browse your GEDCOM documents and downloads. And I believe it’s the only genealogy application with AppleScript support.

Major Changes: Expiration date moved out to June 2006, “Group By Change Date” feature to allow you to easily find where you were last working, To Do List improvements, and various bug fixes.
