Upgrade to Version 6.2.5
Users of Family Historian 6 can now download a free upgrade to the latest version, which is 6.2.5. The new version:
- Adds new functionality to ensure the continued operation of the automatic geocoding feature, following changes by service providers. Also adds future-proofing and robustness improvements.
- Adds a new option (checked by default) to automatically save changes on close, without prompting, if autosave is enabled.
- Improves preservation of record ids on import. Previously, when a GEDCOM file is imported, if a record of one type had to be renumbered, all records would be renumbered. Now record ids are preserved as much as possible, and renumbering only happens for those record types where it is needed.
Version 6.2.5 includes all enhancements for previous version 6 upgrades. See Recent Changes for details of other changes in version 6.
As usual, this upgrade only works if you already have a licensed copy of version 6 installed. It will not work with any version of Family Historian earlier than version 6; nor will it work with trial, demo or starter editions. Users of versions earlier than version 6 can buy an upgrade to version 6 from the Family Historian Store page. To find out which version you have, run Family Historian and click on “About Family Historian” on the Help menu.
To upgrade, open Family Historian 6 and click ‘Check for Updates’ on the Help menu. If your current version is recent but earlier than 6.2.5, there will be an ‘Upgrade Now’ button which you can click to upgrade. Alternatively, if you prefer, (or if you have an old version and there is no ‘Upgrade Now’ button) you can download the upgrade program to your PC by clicking the button below. When the download has completed, run the program to upgrade.
