5.0 out of 5 stars The best family history program on the market, 8 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Family Historian 5 Deluxe Genealogy Software (PC) (CD-ROM)
Quite frankly, if you're a UK-based family historian wanting to buy a program to hold all the facts and family information you've collected, then this is the best product on the market.
Pros: It has the capability to do virtually anything you're likely to want it to do, if it can't do it, then someone has probably written a plug-in already which you can download for free. If you need help, there's a very friendly independent user group as well as the manufacturer's help - and the program comes with access to a hugely helpful manual (Getting the most out of Family Historian" which you can view online or print off. It will also import any tree in GEDCOM format (the de facto international standard and easily produced from most other programs) and produce a thorough check of your existing data highlighting anything that is inconsistent or recorded in a non-standard way. You can use it very simply to build your first tree, but it will grow with you as your research becomes more sophisticated. What's more you're storing your tree on your own computer, so you have complete control over what you publish to public sites.
I've been using Family Historian for about ten years now and it gets better with each new version - I can't think of any reason for switching.
