I would like to see a calculator that would allow me to enter a name and see how old a person was when an event happened. For example, how old was my grandfather when his wife passed away? How old was my ancestor when a particular date or event happened? Like when he moved from one place to another.
I've often wondered how old someone was when something else happened, such as a move, the birth of a child, a divorce, the death of a spouse. You automatically show the age of a person when they got married, I just want a way to figure a person's age when other things happen in that person's life.
Your wish is like Life Capsules which are presently part of Personal Historian.
There are cross over features in different Rootsmagic programs and I often wonder if this fragmentation will continue into the future. I have NOT invested in Rootsmagic Personal Historian or Family Atlas simply as they are just a reporting tool as far as I can see and depend on a one shot import of Rootsmagic data so not interactive with the core database.
Maybe someday we will have a program with an increased cost which encompasses the features of these companion programs.
