Personal Ancestry Writer II – Version 72

Personal Ancestry Writer II Last friday, Personal Ancestry Writer II (PAWriter)- Version 72 was released by Howard Metcalfe. PAWriter is a free Mac genealogy program that incorporates a lot of features found in the original Personal Ancestral File (PAF) for Mac OS/Classic while adding new features in (including many requested by users). Version 72 fixes a bug with the ‘Find Person’ window, as well as adjusting what could be considered possible problems, and adds an option to Ahnentafels in regards to hiding information on living people.

* The source for the crash occurring in the OS X version when double-clicking on a person in the Find Person window has been isolated and corrected. With this correction, the window will open normally every time. Note that this problem occurred in other actions using the Find Person window, e.g., in Merge by Name and Find Relationship by Name. The crash in these other cases is eliminated as well.
* Children adopted by older people will no longer appear in the list of possible problems (previously listed under women 48 years old or older and under men 72 years old or older).
* An option has been added to Ahnentafels to suppress data for people who may be living. The Reference guide has been updated to state this option.
