GreatFamily v1.1 (Build 3)

Great Family Software - the first link is to an old free version, which will be a zipped file from which you will extract the setup file.  This free version is very cool, as it allows you to see connections as you would like to see them, and configure at will.  You can create web pages from it for each individual, with an clickable index of surnames, and you can upload pictures to it as well.  If you get serious about genealogy, you will probably end up using another program instead, as this program is limited.  It is however perfect for the novice.

The second link is to their pay version, with a free trial, has some better features but still not as advanced as some of the much better free programs
