Getting Started: Genealogy Software

You will, of course, need a genealogy software program in which to enter all of your data. Several programs have been discontinued over the years [Ancestry Family Tree, for example.] Some programs offer a free download with basic input ability; the require you to purchase the full-access version. Others are totally free.

Here are a few programs for you to check out:

My Heritage: Family Tree Builder
Legacy Family Tree
Roots Magic [my personal choice]
Mac Family Tree [for Mac users]
Ancestral Quest
My Family Tree
Wikitree allows you to create a tree on the website. also allows you to create a tree onsite.

Check Cyndi's List or do a "genealogy software" search for reviews or additional info. Also visit each program's home page.
