Selecting the right genealogy software program
for compiling your family history can be a difficult decision if you're just beginning
your genealogy research.
Your choice of genealogy software programs is
going to be the most important decision you make before you actually start compiling and
archiving your information. The right genealogy software program will provide you with a
host of features which will enhance your results and make gathering and sharing your
family history easier.
You need to know that among the many genealogy
software programs available today, probably only a handful will be around in a few years.
This has been the history of this industry in the past, and there is no reason to believe
this will change in the future. We constantly see new genealogy programs enter the market
each year. While many programs may have excellent features, the companies behind them
usually lack the resources to market and support their software effectively. The problem
is compounded by the fact that most genealogists will remain loyal to the company they
first purchased from or to their current company. The reluctance to change to a different
genealogy software program is also as a result of the difficulty in transferring genealogy
data from one software program to the next.
