     New Improvements at OneGreatFamily

    We're Listening to YOU!

    We're very interested in improving our product and services here at OneGreatFamily. That's why we've listened to YOUR requests and made the specific site changes that you requested most often. Here are just a few of the changes we've made:

    Streamlined the Home Page and several of the heavily trafficked pages on the site: Many pages are simpler and less cluttered, making it easier to find the options you seek.

    GEDCOM export improved: Many major and minor issues in exporting your family data from OneGreatFamily were identified and corrected.

    Genealogy Browser stability improved: Some users experienced instability in the Genealogy Browser arising from aspects of their PC's configuration. Most of these have now been addressed and the Browser will be more stable on those configurations.

    This is just the start of our effort to significantly improve your experience while using OneGreatFamily. We'll be letting you know of the next round of improvements in future editions of this e-newsletter. So, till next time-happy researching.

     Technical Support: Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2)

    We're Ready!

    If your computer is running Windows XP, you may have recently heard about a significant update Microsoft is releasing that is referred to as Service Pack 2 (SP2). Many users are asking if they can anticipate any problems with OneGreatFamily if they install the update.

    The good news is that we have addressed incompatibilities between OneGreatFamily and SP2 in this release. We have tested the Genealogy Browser with the version of Service Pack 2 released by Microsoft and it works just fine.
