Here’s a Quick Way to Improve the Person View in The Master Genealogist 7

There is an often overlooked part of The Master Genealogist’s person view called the Other Info box. By default it displays the following information about the focal person, in this order:

  • Reference
  • Number of Children
  • Surname Soundex
  • Number of Tags
  • Person’s Age
  • Date Last Edited

This is all helpful information, but there’s a problem. The box doesn’t display all of the information at once, so you must scroll the list. It would be better to have the information you most often need displayed at the top so that it’s available at a glance instead. I prefer having the last edit date and person’s age displayed at the top with the reference number. You can put them in whatever order you desire.

In this video I take you step-by-step through the process so that you can make your genealogy research just a little bit more efficient.
