In Response To: Re: Family Tree Maker 2009 ()
I agree with Linda, Legacy Deluxe is nice! I had FTM 2008 and received the free 2009 update. I still wasn't satisfied.
The nice thing about Legacy 7 is they allow the researcher to classify their research without limiting a user to the confines of a what they consider to be a “normal” ancestral family. I have ancestors (as most do) that had children together but weren't married. The software doesn't force me to list them as such. Legacy may not have the web clipping or the pretty gui as in FTM, but you can customize the software with the background, colors, etc. that you want! Not to mention you can select a HOME family versus a HOME Person!
You get the all in one tree or book output that isn't available until FTM brings it back. Plus, with their master lists you can make sure you're not importing incorrect spellings of locations which FTM will do because the transcribers on Ancestry are spelling the location name exactly as it was written regardless if it was spelled wrong.
That's my two cents!
