I have used several genealogy software programs over the years including FTM, the family history centers, ancestral and then I found Legacy which I have used for the last 12 years. It does everything I want it to including linking with Clooz. I have several genealogy friends who have now switched to Legacy. It is easy to use but includes many high level functions. There is a free version that you can try. I started with that and then subsequently moved to the Deluxe version which as Keith said is very inexpensive. Good luck in making your decision. > > Mary Jane Wood > > ----- Original Message ----- > > From: "Keith Berry via" <woodworth@rootsweb.com> > To: "Sharon Bias, AVATAR Business Systems" <sgbelverta@aol.com>, woodworth@rootsweb.com, stapp@rootsweb.com, tabar@rootsweb.com > Sent: Thursday, January 14, 2016 6:56:23 PM > Subject: Re: [WOODWORTH] Family Tree Maker software going away > > Sharon, > > When I started in Genealogy a few years ago, I used a program called > Roots III which was DOS-based.
