This programme is what turned me on to Family Historian.
The ability to add the core information from a census once and apply it to the records for all members of the household is excellent. It saves endless re-keying.
Due to the limitations of the Gedcom format this application does not work as well with other Family Tree programmes but with Family Historian it integrates perfectly.
Although this is described as being for Family Historian it should work with any GEDCOM file. It reads your GEDCOM file to provide the basis for inputting the new source and so is using the sources already identified. At present (June 2010) it is only set up for census records but Nick plans to expand it through all the common sources.
It takes you through the data you should have available from the source you are entering and reminds you to enter the full text from the source as well as allowing the attachment of an image. For a census it automatically creates residence, occupation, recorded age, and birth records as necessary.
Biggest Pro: Records everything available.Biggest Con: Demonstrates my poor memory
