Date Preferences

Linking and syncing your family file/database with FamilySearch Family Tree is one of the great features of Ancestral Quest.

Some time ago, FamilySearch Family Tree went to spelling out the full month and at that time most genealogical software used the shortened abbreviated version of the month including Ancestral Quest.

In January when we released our latest build, number 33, the ability to match that change in Family Tree was made available in Ancestral Quest.

To change your current month to the fully spelled out month go to Tools and Preferences:

Once there you'll need to click on the tab titled "Formats":

Note the drop down next to "Month", here is where you can choose how you want your month displayed as well as how you want the whole date to appear in your family file/database on all of your reports.

This new adjustment makes it easier when linking and syncing with FamilySearch Family Tree but also follows through to the reports making them look more professional.

If you haven't updated to the latest build, number 33, you'll need to do that to take advantage of this new feature! Click here to see how to update your AQ 14 software to the latest build.

Enjoy this and many other features on Ancestral Quest today, you can try it out for free by downloading Ancestral Quest Basics here.

Remember Ancestral Quest is fully FamilySearch Certified!

Comments and questions are always welcome!

Happy Ancestraling...Claire ;)
