5.0 out of 5 stars Family Historian 3.0 23 Nov 2006
By davytom
I was somewhat dubious about purchasing this item of software, but my fears were soon dismissed when I started to use it. It loaded without any problems. Taking a short amount of time out to read the small handbook that came with the software I was soon creating my own family history.One feature of this programme is the lack of any "ok" buttons on some of the screens. The data is entered and then just tab and the data is saved. This took a short time to get used to but is now second nature.Its capacity to link records and other details is amazing. Although the handbook is not a comprehensive guide to the features of the software, the help screens have been able to answer all the questions I have had. To summarise, an intuative programme,well constructed, and lots of features that do not appear on other programmes. Well done Calico Pie for thinking of every possibility that may arise.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best just got better 5 Jan 2007
Version 3 adds a whole range of powerful features to an already comprehensive program. There is a learning curve for this program especially for computer novices, but the pay off is an exceptionally flexible program allowing customisation of many areas of its output. With the added benefit of an active mailing list and user group forum, new users have a large variety of sources for help. If you want a program just to draw a quick family tree then Family Historian is not for you. If you want a program to document your family history, analyse and extract information and then produce comprehensive reports and charts then Family Historian is for you. If you are not sure then why not download the Demo version from the family-historian.co.uk website and try it out to see if it suits you, first.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Genealogy Program 21 May 2007
Having tried a few different programs over a period of about 6 years this is undoubtedly the best and most comprehensive that I have used. Not the easiest to understand if you are just begining with genealogy but for a more experienced user I would say it is unrivaled. The way it reads native GEDCOM files is a real boon. Its split tree facility is wonderfull if you just want to extract part of your tree to give to someone else. The ability to just extract a head from a group picture is so usefull.

Great value and thoroughly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars A good choice for the UK user 25 Nov 2006
By Tony Jones VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
As a novice I don't ultimately know how my needs will evolve. I tried various demo packages and have opted for this for the following reasons:

1) Written for the UK market

2) Interface allows lots of editing from diagrams

3) Good support from the forum and user community

4) 100% GEDCOM compatible

5) Good tools to link a picture to multiple individuals.

Since buying it I have been impressed with the quality, the free vouchers and an upgrade to 3.1 downloaded fine.

Highly recommended.
