Version 7 does not use Btrieve for the database. Some users have had trouble with Btrieve or wbtrv32.dll and this version will work better for them.

Version 7 can convert your existing data from version 6

Version 7 prints reports in the same manner as 6.6 does currently.

New reports: Version 7.0 has two new reports. The Ancestor Origins report and the 10 Generation Ancestor Circle Summary chart.
