Moved? Changing the 'Prepared by' in AQ

Most individuals at some point in their life has had to move, The process of packing up all of one's belongings, putting them on a truck of some sort and then traveling to a new home can be overwhelming and seemingly impossible and never ending.

Once you reach your new location, the unpacking begins and eventually things begin to settle down to some sort of normalicy. This whole process can take months or weeks depending on the time schedule involved.

Eventually, notices have to sent out to various places to inform them of the new address, family and friends are also notified. 

One of the places that can easily can skipped in updating an address is your Ancestral Quest Family File. It isn't something you think about or even worry about until one day the opportunity to share a Family Group Sheet or a Pedigree comes along. It is printed and there is the old address.

To fix this, simply go into Tools and scroll down to 'Preferences', like this:

Once there you'll need to click on the "Prepared by" tab:

Simply remove the old address and type in the new one and click on "OK". That is all there is to updating the program with your new address!

Remember Ancestral Quest is fully FamilySearch Certified!

Comments and questions are always welcome!

Happy Ancestraling...
