I've found this to be the "Must have" plugin of all available

I find it is easier and therefore quick to input date with Ancestral Sources.

What I would like is to be able to input a wife's married name (as per the census) and not the maiden name.

Also some occupations are remembered others (School) are not. Also applies to where born and other boxes.

Derek, you have mistaken this Plugin for the Program that it invokes.

Your comments should be entered into the FHUG Ancestral Sources Forum.
