1. Brian and Michael, thanks for the feedback.

    Being on a Mac somewhat limits my software options. I’m seriously considering building a tool in FileMaker that does what I want. I could probably get it to do most of what I’m looking for.

    Hi Kris,
    I had the same problems with my one-name study – genealogical programs are too restrictive,
    I found that the best solution was a free-form database which has hyperlinks. Have a look at the “Kingstairs Software” site.


  3. The Master Genealogist software package does allow you to connect people as “witnesses” to events (which includes a variety of roles, such as sponsors or godparents of a baptism, etc.). These events show up on the profiles of both the principals and the witnesses.


What do you think?
