I love Legacy and you can explore it on line and even download a free
virsion to give it a try which is how I got hooked on it. I haven't updated to
the newest few updates so I cannot speak for their latest version. My only
complaint at all is the cost of updates. I keep waiting for them to get one
that isn't updated for a few years.

I am looking for a genealogy software that will be able to do an all in one
chart--the main line but also sisters and brothers of those in the line. I
am considering Family Historian but have seen one review that basically
it wasn't worth the trouble. At first glance it seems good to me, one main
reason being that it can do the all in one chart. It also looks like it can
create a good book also. I am willing to put in some start up time if it
will do what I want it to! Has anybody used this? Opinion? Thanks! Joan
P.s. I am using this for my husband's German roots and they are really well
documented. That's such a change from what I see for my clan!

When I started out, I bought Family Origins and Family Tree Maker. I
preferred Family Origins until Roots Magic came out. I bought the
whole Legacy system a few years back because "it could do so much."
But, when I imported my gedcom, I lost all of my notes and added
information. I have not looked at it since. Rootsmagic is wonderful
and if you have any problem, you can call the company and someone will
respond. You can do all sorts of charts and there is a smaller version
built in called "Rootsmagic to Go" that you can put on a flash drive
and take where ever you go. If you are visiting a cousin, you can take
it with you and put it on their computer without having to install the
program. You can also make CDs to give to your relatives that are
simply 'read only' copies of your data. I have used four different
programs and I love RootsMagic.
