  • BK6.2.xx is now on the market.
    In the beginning I surmised that BK6 promises to be a worthy competition to the glossier genealogical programs. Well, it has. BK6.2.xx as it is now in Dec 2005.
    BK6 has "To Do" lists, "Media" that include Videos, Audios, & texts that record the details of events and persons & places, and the direct linking of URLS for the web & e-mails.
    It will certainly record ALL you ever might want to record. The reports are still being developed and remain in the old BK5 tradition. However the treatment of additional fields, with formal Sources, Notes & WITNESSES is a major boon for serious genealogists. John Steed is rigidly conforming to the GedCom Standard are far as users will let him.
    See BK6 page. at
    BROTHERS KEEPER Discussion Group.
