I am pleased to announce that version 1.6.0 of the "Ellis Island Database Name Permutation" program is now available. This latest release includes the following...
-The ability to search by ethnicity. A list of all the ethnicities in the Ellis Island Database is shown, and you simply check off those that you want.
-An improved ability to search by ship name. A list of ship names in the Ellis Island Database is shown, and you simply select the ship that you want
-The ability to search by as little as one letter of the surname
-The ability to specify that you want to see records that exactly match your surname, start with certain letters, or both.
-A cleaner display, making the program easier to use.
-The ability to edit the ethnicities, and remove those that you never plan to need. This makes it easier to find those ethnicities that you are interested in.
-The ability to edit the ship names, and remove those that you never plan to need. This makes it easier to find those ships that you are interested in.
