The Master Genealogist

After reviewing a number of demos, shareware programs, and feature lists over about four months, I decided to purchase TMG. This program has the capacity to store unlimited numbers of names, sources, photos, and text files per individual, and customizable privacy of information settings. It appears to be an excellent program for serious amateurs or professional researchers, and is highly customizable in what reports and charts it can print, what facts are recorded (with customizable unlimited tags and events), and will also easily track tagged events (eg. "clergy", "multiple birth" or "diabetes") through generations. I am particularly pleased that it will let me record conflicting data, such as storing multiple birth dates and names for individuals, and that it allows you to manipulate charts to a high degree. If anyone would be interested in discussing genealogy software with me further, or why I picked TMG over other programs (please, friendly enquiries only), I would be happy to discuss my choice in more detail.
