If you're after The Master Genealogist (TMG), and you like the convenience (or security) of having your genealogy program on a CD so you can reinstall it as needed, then this is the product for you.
The CD edition, comes with both the US edition and UK editions of the program. You simply choose which version you wish to install. The difference is primarily in the pre-designed charts, as UK style charts do differ to the US ones. You can read more about the specific differences here.
It also comes with a PDF edition of the 504 page "Users Guide", so if the online Hep doesn't answer your question, the book probably will.
The Master Genealogist has been the ''gold standard" in family history software for many years now. Used by mainly by professional researchers, as well as the serious amateur researchers, the latest version reinforces TMG's
