    "a good free program"

    November 26, 2009  |   By bettyinsweden


    This is a beautiful program. Very easy to use IF you don't start comparing it with other programs. I have been using PAF and as that is not being updated I was looking for another-just in case. Does everything almost. It is available in 35 languages.


    So far I have been having a problem with installing pictures....but that may be me not the program. I would also like to be able to see other marriages displayed.


    There are many features to this program that are different from PAF, such as maps,the ability to search on their site(whish is small now but should build with more people using the program. You just have to make a gedcom from your current program and install it into the program. You cannot duplicate entries as the program tells you that the entries are already there. The free program gives you a website also. You can update to the premium program which they advertise as cheap, but I think $75.00 is not cheap. The free program works just fine. The premium allows bigger trees and a few other gadgets. I only downloaded this yesterday so I am no pro .
