http://www.spansoft.org/ = Kith and Kin

http://www.spansoft.org/

my fav is Kith and Kin and especially the 3.1 version which allows you to cut and paste from the record to the software and backwards. which allows emailing results with much less time involved

i couldnt vote but i should of been able to

Brother's Keeper

I did not see Brother's Keeper in your list. I have used it for a decade and watched it grow with me from DOS to Windows.

Brother's Keeper

I, too, use Brother's Keeper as my genealogy program, and have for many years now.

Family Tree Software

I use Family Tree Maker 2005. I have used this software since they were Banner Blue. I am pleased with the latest features in version 2005. Three of my relatives have bought this software on my recommendation.

Talking

I use PAF but have purchased Legacy, the upgraded (not free) version that I hope to learn to use as soon as I can wrestle myself away from genealogy for an hour to learn the software

I use Family Tree Maker 2005. I'd switch in a heartbeat if I could find a package that would offer what FTM provides, plus full text searching capability covering any entries I had made. For example, I put things in notes for an individual, but I can't search those notes and all others for a key word--name, location, date, etc.

I eagerly await results of your survey to find out where I might find a better choice.

I used Generations Family Tree version 8.5, that is not listed. It is old and not supported any more but it does things that the newer ones don't and has a much friendlier interface than Family Tree Maker, in my opinion.
