Earlier today we celebrated our most popular blog post ever: the one about NOT keeping your master tree online at genealogy websites like Ancestry. Interestingly, keeping your master tree in software at home was the theme of our second most popular post, which includes a list of Lisa’s favorite family history software programs. We’re sensing a theme! Gems readers want to keep their genealogy SAFE.
Bottom line: the best genealogy software for you depends on how much you want to spend and how sophisticated you want your database to be. Do you want a free basic version or a premium product that will cost you something? Do you want to use the software to produce books or family charts? Are you a Mac or PC user? Lisa addresses these considerations in her top-rated blog post on the best genealogy software and why you should be using it.
Next: how to download and/or backup all your Ancestry data. Don’t miss this popular post–or our recommendation for backing up your entire computer for $5 a month.
