- The LARGEST Genealogy Ring on the 'Net!
Cemetary Tombstone Records
- Family Tree Maker
This is the software I have used the most. It seems to me the
easiest to use and is very stable. I started to look at others several
years ago because of features that FTM did not have. However, they
have added many of those features now and I found the others far too
technical to use. From a usability standpoint, this program has my
vote. One thing that truly annoys me about this software is the lack of
support for personal Internet. It has a huge amount of features to
publish your information their website (which increases their value) but
little to publish to your own. I found this really annoying --
especially a few years ago when they were charging you so much.
However, you can now by the software and 20 libraries for about $70 and use
the website so I don't feel so much like they are taking advantage of their
users without returning the value. What is nice too -- those
that don't want to get fancy about their website, own a domain, etc., this
is the way to go.
- Ultimate Family Tree
This software is very feature rich and the underlying database structure
is available to techie people like myself. You can also export data to
real data structures like excel which is nice. However, it is not
nearly as easy to use as FTM and did not seem as stable. To be fair, I
haven't used it in its current versions so it may have improved those
aspects with FTM was adding charts and data that this program already
had. One thing that was nice was the ability to search and replace
data throughout your file.
- The Master Genealogist
I really didn't use this software -- after purchasing it, I got
distracted from my genealogy pursuits for awhile -- that is the way my life
goes. It, like UFT, has a more open database structure and it had
reports and charts that were not available elsewhere. Of the 3, it was
more like a genealogist tool -- genealogy as a science that is. Again,
that was a few years ago and FTM has come a long way since then on many of
its features but I have not looked at the current TMG offering.
I am still using version 5.5. This is overkill for the work that I have
currently presented on the website but I am using it for other purposes.
This is the first software I used (the DOS version) many years
ago. I haven't used the latest version.
This is the shareware software I used to convert the family tree data to
linked webpages. It is probably the most used software for doign this
on the web. It is pretty easy to use. I haven't used the latest
version -- will soon. The author of the software also runs the GENDEX
server which reads an index file created when you run GED2HTML to create
searchable links in the GENDEX server to your site information.
Therefore, it is a great way to publish your site's data to those searching
for your surnames.
This program is a useful utility to remove individual details about living
relatives so that you can publish genealogy data and still maintain privacy.
This is a program similar to GED2HTML.
