    "Best of the lot."

    August 13, 2014   |   By dasvt

    Version: Legacy Family Tree 7.5.0.219

    Pros

    I've been working on family genealogy for over ten years (mine and others). I am an experienced amateur with research training in another field. I've tried half a dozen genealogy programs, and encountered issues with all of them. Legacy was intuitive from the start. I became a paid user, since I do use advanced research, citation, and report techniques. With the latest issue (Legacy 8) the program is stronger,with few issues. When a user does find something that could work better, the company addresses it quickly. The product is constantly improving. I think at least two of the problems reported here by other users were due to the download site "bundling". Suggest going to Millenium site to initiate download to avoid these kind of problems. I have muliple lines and lots of names on my laptop, and never crashed or slowed down. Best education and training of any software out there, great free "webinars" on almost any subject related to genealogical research.

    Cons

    Wish I could create display trees showing more complex trees (multiple lines), and show all marriages on same tree. Maybe it's in Legacy 8 and I haven't found it yet! The biggest challenge with Legacy 8 is learning to use all its powerful features.

    Summary

    Intuitive, easy for beginners to get into. A lot of pros use it, so that shows how powerful it can be. I am not connected with the software or the company at all, but am a very pleased customer. It is easy for me to add and edit info, including links to digital images and forms, generate meaningful citations and readable reports (which I can then edit into my personal style, adding conclusions and proof arguments. And believe me, if you aren't doing those things, you aren't really doing genealogy. It is not a list of names, dates, and relationships-- there are too many bad genealogies out there with lots of errors. Legacy helps identify errors and generates lists of suggested resources to validate information, so that even family historians can use solid research to create accurate family trees, and better yet: you'll know something about the people other than their names and vital statistics. They'll become real people.

    "GREAT PROGRAM"

    March 26, 2014   |   By dhcowgirl

    Version: Legacy Family Tree 7.5.0.219

    Pros

    Ease of use, source templates, reports, tech support, mapping, help index, webinars, tutorial cd's, ability to use ancestor colors, quick loading, free updates between new releases, which is usually 2 years, integrates with family search if you want to. Did I mention great reports?

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Summary

    I have no idea why the three other people on this site have such scathing things to say. But, the genealogy groups I belong to both on Facebook and in person all have many many Legacy users who love this program.

    "Dont waste your time with this product"

    November 08, 2013   |   By TimJF

    Version: Legacy Family Tree 7.5.0.219

    Pros

    Ease of use

    Cons

    If you have over 100,000 individuals in your database the relationship calculator will not work and has not since at least 2011. No fix forthcoming. Not for the serious genealogist.

    Summary

    Go with anything other than this product.

    "disappointing"

    June 03, 2013   |   By agenealogist

    Version: Legacy Family Tree 7.5.0.219

    Pros

    slick tutorial video.

    Cons

    I downloaded the free version to try before I buy. The program errored out and didn't recognize my printer. I run a wired Samsung printer from a wireless Netgear printer server that works perfectly on all my other software - Microsoft Office, Corel, Photoshop, Family Tree Maker, etc. I looked through the Legacy program for printer set up - found the tab and got the same error message. I then looked at the help files - no help files on printer set up. Finally found some 'help' features in an online forum somewhere. It said to uninstall and reinstall my printer..... even if my printer works on everything else? Ummmm - no. I have uninstalled Legacy.

    Summary

    For me - this program is pointless and useless unless I can print.
