Genealogy Software

Tired of painstakingly filling out genealogy charts by hand? The right software program can organize your research, assist you in finding new sources of information, hook you up with other researchers and even help you publish your research on the Internet.

No software program will be perfect for everyone, so be certain to shop around before you buy. Check out Genealogy Software and Genealogy Software Springboard to read reviews, research features and chat with others about their favorite programs.

Here are some of the most popular programs.

Shareware

    You can access an extensive collection of databases, get tips from genealogy experts, connect with others who are researching the same family tree or take an online training course. The Online Family Tree allows members of your family to record, preserve and share a family tree on the Internet. An annual subscription costs $69.95, but access to the Online Family Tree is free.




  • Genealogy Detective
    This software is simple to use, yet contains enough features to satisfy an advanced researcher. It features free Web site hosting, guides to coats of arms and royal titles, daily e-mail tips and links to free publications. Download the software for $24.97 and receive three bonus gifts.

  • Brother's Keeper Genealogy Software
    This program offers a large storage capacity, the ability to attach photographs, a variety of printing and report possibilities and a people-finding search engine. Try it out for free; then pay $45 to register.

  • The Master Genealogist
    This is one of the most powerful programs available, with a reputation as "the one that does it all." Decide for yourself, by using their comparison chart, covering 350 features. You can also download a demo and, if you like what you see, order online for $59 to $99.

  • Family Origins Genealogy Software
    This extensive program allows you to track multiple relationships, print heirloom-quality family trees and wall charts, create a multimedia scrapbook and publish your scrapbook on the Web. Download a full working copy for 15 days; after that, it's $29.95 for the 9.0 version or $39.95 for the 9.0 Deluxe Version.

Retail

  • Family Trees Quick & Easy 4.0
    Enter everything you know about your family tree, and when you notice a missing date or event, simply highlight the name. Click the "Search the Internet" button and you'll have access to hundreds of online databases. Order it online for $19.95, plus shipping.

  • Family Tree Maker.com
    This is one of the most popular programs - easy-to-use, yet comprehensive. The FamilyFinder Report advises you where to look for information. The Create-a-Home-Page Wizard walks you through the process of creating an extensive Web site. You can also create an heirloom-quality Family Book with trees, reports, maps and stories. Order it online from $19.99 to $99.99, depending on how many CDs you chose (the Collector's Edition has 42).
