Well I know it has been a while since I posted. I have been busy with life in general. Graduation of my youngest, moving into my first home (on my own anyway), work being busier (more responsibilities) but I have been working here and there on my Genealogy. I have been helping my aunt as she is trying to find out about her families past. Now I have purchased software for Christmas for my sister-in-law. She has been interested in working on her genealogy for some time and since I pulled her name for 'Secret Santa', it was a logical choice.
I am logging in to voice my opinion on the choice's out there for Genealogy programs in light of the announcement of 'Family Tree Maker' coming to an end soon. I have since the beginning of my genealogy research been using 'Legacy' and have never had reason to be sorry for that choice. The basic program is free and the full version is very reasonable (right now it is on sale for Christmas, making it even more so). Take a look at this article for even more info. http://www.legalgenealogist.com/blog/2015/12/09/check-out-the-alternatives/
Down load the free version of Legacy and check out their web site http://www.legacyfamilytree.com/Index.asp . They also have many training videos on the software and genealogy itself. There is a large users group, and more. Ultimately you have to be happy with your choice so investigate. I know Legacy help's me and my family to 'Remember When...' all the time.
