Using AQ 16?

Ancestral Quest 16 was released in October, 2019. There are many new Premium features to enhance your experience when working on your Family History!

Descendants View

This is a much-requested new feature, it joins the Pedigree, Family, Name List, Individual, and Timeline view tabs along the top of the program! The different view provides an additional way to handle and view your families. You can click on the various buttons to the right or left of individuals to navigate, including the special left arrow next to the main person, which will let you change the focus to a parent. You can select 1, 2 or 3 generations of descendants, then expand selected lines up to 6 generations deep.

Background Images on many Charts

For many charts, you can now include a background image. The background image can be placed on these reports:

  • Pedigree
  • Fan
  • Ancestry (Standard and Wall chart)
  • Descendant (Standard, Wall chart and Dropline chart)
  • Line of Descent
  • Calendar
  • Timeline

The image can be displayed with various opacity levels. You can even move background images around on the chart. As an example, you can create a birthday calendar for a month, where you set the page margins to .5 inches for left, bottom and right, but to 5.8 inches for top margin (this will put the calendar on the bottom half of an 8.5 x 11 paper), then put a picture on the top half of the page.

Share Custom Events

When you are adding or editing other/custom events within the Edit Individual screen, you can now share (copy) an event with other individuals in your database. 

For example, after finding a family of 10 on a census record, you can go to one member of the family, add a “Residence” other event to indicate that the person lived in that location on the date of the census, and attach a census source to the Residence event. You can then Share that event and source quickly with the other 9 members of the family, without having to individually add the Residence event to each record. Talk about a time saver!
