Shortly after the release of this feature, we received this e-mail from a user, and share it with permission:
I was puzzling for days over how I could possibly relate to Mary Murdoch
Ferguson. Now, half an hour after downloading AQ 11, I see that she is
obviously the third child of the fourth child of the first child of the
fourth child of William Brown who is the great-grandfather of the spouse of
Mary Alexander Maxwell Johnstone who is the fifth child of the third child
of the eighth child of the second child of the fourth child of the first
child of my fourth great grandfather Robert Hotson (ahnentafel number 98), simply
because her generated custom ID number is 98+142835.8+4143. It's so elegant!
Someone has done a fantastic job here. I should like to drink his or her
health this Christmas.
