Collectors of family history tend to accumulate extensive but diverse genealogical information. 'What is the best way to organise it all?' is a question that soon arises, generally followed by 'How so I present this information and preserve it for posterity?' A genealogy program is part of the solution. 'But which genealogy program is best?' How do you decide which features you will want, and determine the most appropriate software without testing them all?

'Which Genealogy Program?' surveys the major available family history programs available, and discusses their features. Dedicated sections compare aspects such as ease of use, help and support, the various reports available, data flexibility and convenience features, use of multimedia, source recording, file transfers, functions for 'power users', privacy controls, as well as the offerings in the Australasian editions. A general discussion of each program is followed by detailed tables of features and accompanying notes.

In an easy to read format, 'Which Genealogy program?' provides you with all the information you need to make your own judgement about the available software. Use it to determine which application is best for you - whether you are looking for your very first program or considering an upgrade.
