I just installed this software that I purchased sometime ago as I resurrected my work on the family genealogy project. I am based in Canada and my ancestors go back almost to the founding of the North American colonies by both France and England. I was under the impression that the software would display county level information. I have noticed that I can see counties in many other countries. Being a resident of Canada I know for a fact that there are counties here and was wondering if it is a issue with my software or something else. Is anyone aware of this and know what is going on?

Thank-you in advance for any of your responses

Genealogy, the hobby of putting together a jigsaw puzzle of an exponetially increasing number of pieces, that increases in an upwards and downwards direction continiously, where each piece is a specific event tied to a specific person at a specific period of time... I should have picked up a simplier hobby... studying the human genome ;-)

Where are you expecting to see this county level information displayed?

I was expecting to see county level boundaries when zooming in on the Canadian provinces.

I have confirmed that Family Atlas does not have the county level boundaries for Canada stored inside the program, so they will not display.

You may want to think on adding that in your updates to the software
