[accordions title=”New or significant changes” open=”yes”]

  1. Add id numbers to the block names on the “Change the block on this page” pop-up, making selection from multiple similar blocks easier.
  2. Add a pair of “missing birth/death” checks to the Sanity Checker tool. These include options defining your personal definition of “missing” to some degree.
  3. Create a new DNA tab where you can record basic data for DNA results from the major testing companies such as AncestryDNA. You can add/edit/delete DNA data for connections between a individuals on a tab on the individual page of either of those individuals. The output display includes links back to the other person plus the calculated relationship description. (Note: This feature does not use GEDCOM for storage. It is a separate table in your database. Therefore it will not be included in any GEDCOM file created from your family tree data.) This feature should probably be described as “experimental” at this stage. So feel free to discuss changes and/or improvements on the forum.
  4. Implement an option to upload zipped gedcom files. If you have problems importing from a GEDCOM file due to server /PHP uload restrictions, you can now use a more compact “zipped” copy of the file instead.
  5. Replace the Google-based statistics charts (Charts > Statistics) with a completely re-written set not using Google. As well as the new chart displays, a number of the statistical numbers such as “Total living” are now clickable-links that open lists of those individuals. This makes verifying and understanding the data easier. Note though that the statistics do not exclude any individuals based on privacy (because no individual data is shown in such totals), but the lists provided ARE limited by privacy rules. So the results shown may differ depending on the viewers access rights.
