"Excellent Product for over 20 Years"

July 01, 2013  |  By krootie

 |  Version: Brother's Keeper 6.6.8

Pros

Author, John Steed updates his software with the latest applications as they emerge in genealogy. A registered/paid version is far more affordable in comparison with all the extras - including great technical help if required from Mr. Steed himself.

Cons

Can't think of any - as his software has always surpassed my needs.

Summary

I first downloaded his DOS software in '92 before Windows, and have continued updating and purchasing the latest version over these past 20 some years. (Should have kept that large antique floppy disk.) I have tried two other competitive software, but still favor BK. On two occasions, Mr. Steed helped me when it was my ignorance of my computer's hardware - not his program. Where else can one get such pleasant and FREE service?

"My Favorite"

February 16, 2013  |  By dougallison

 |  Version: Brother's Keeper 6.6.6

Pros

I have been doing genealogy for 25 years and using BK for 20yrs, I love it. I have tried most of the other programs out there (multiple times) and keep coming back to BK. It is simple, fast, easy to navigate/query/import/export, frequently updated and very economical. Over the years I have had one or two occasions where I have had to contact BK directly for technical support and John Steed (the author) has always been EXTREMELY helpful.

Cons

none that I can think of
