My Family Tree 12.4 now available

Today we are excited to announce the release of My Family Tree 12.4 available now from the latest updates page.

This release contains several new features and changes in the following areas:

Enhanced statistics and data filters

In this release, the statistics feature has received a major upgrade. The statistics section now contains dozens of new analytics which can help you gather new insights into your family tree. New relationship statistics allows you to gain a better understanding of how the people in your tree are related to you with graphs showing how many steps, marriages, or generations each person is away.

For marriages, we added new statistics on the age differences between spouses when they married. For children, we added new statistics on the age difference between siblings.

We also redesigned the display of individuals mentioned in statistics, and now show a profile picture, their relationship to you, information tooltips, as well as support for click to navigate so you can jump directly to a person in the chart.

The new relationship statistics also bring new ways to filter lists of people, allowing you to quickly select individuals based on their relation to you.
