FamilyInsight now with Ordinance Tracker

Ohana Software's FamilyInsight program has a major upgrade. Below is a list of the major features of the program showing the new enhancements. However, the program on my computer does not show that any upgrades are available and in searching the Ohana Website, I cannot find the upgrade. I assume that the upgrade has yet to be formally released because usually the program loads upgrade automatically. This program works both as a PAF add-on tool and as a standalone program.
