Feature Request

I now have over 1,600 names in my family tree and I believe I'm only halfway there. Unfortunately, it now takes a while to switch between different people and I have yet to add any pictures. I probably need to upgrade my laptop, but that's only part of the problem.

I would like to recommend that you change the backend from XML to a database. The whole purpose of Family.Show was to showcase WPF. However, for it to grow and allow for large families, it really needs a database backend. This would also make it easier to turn it into a web application (Silverlight). Not to mention, allowing for internationalization would be complicated and slow using XML.

Family.Show is on the right track and I hope things will continue to improve as it matures.
