Re: [Genealogy Research Club] Help! I need a good free program
I noted that you requested information pertaining to FREE or FREE Trial
Genealogy Software, but noone has really given you the answers you are
seeking. Maybe this information will be more to your liking and help you
Go to http://www.rootsmagic.com and download the Demo version of the
Another user friendly genealogy program you can download this FREE Family
I have used Family Origins as my primary genealogy program because is it
very easy to use, has a more features and data fields, than Family Tree
Maker. Parson's Technology stopped upgrading the program with version 9.0,
so when I heard about the RootsMagic program I got it and it is just like
Family Origins with more user friend features and just as easy to use.
You can create a variety of tree formats, reports, websites, books with
source, notes, etc. included and more.
All total, I have seven different genealogy programs so that when I share my
data with other researchers, I can create the GEDCOM that will work best
with their genealogy program. Example: Family Origins has about 15 more
data fields than Family Tree Maker. If you were to download a Family
Origins GEDCOM into Family Tree Maker, you would lose a lot of data and the
fields would not match up.
There use to be several a real good user friendly genealogy programs
available until a couple years ago when The Learning Company merged with the
software publishing companies that produced the genealogy programs, in order
to eliminate the Family Tree Maker competition. TLC was successful and
there are four less real user friendly genealogy programs available.

> Hi all,
> I want to create one family tree for my website. I've downloaded three
programs now but none satisfies me. I want to write name, occupation, birth
and death date & location. Further I want to have it as easy as possible
(only normal boxes, no pictures are needed) and I must be able to show
siblings and half siblings to (Ages is a good program but it won't let me do
that). Can anyone suggest me a free software or shareware (then I should be
able to save it in order to put it on my homepage, but it can have a time
limitation, as said I only need it once).
