Legacy 9.0 is not exactly what its cracked up to be

I was, for many years, a strong advocate for Ancestry's FTM, until I tried to install their v2012 on Windows 10. For whatever reason I encountered problem after problem, and on just about every occasion I sought help from the authors. Unfortunately they proved to be worse than useless when it came to providing an explanation and/or a workable solution to get me back on track, so I gave up on them and opted for Legacy v8.0.

Whilst I've found that v8.0 (much like v9.0 which I've since migrated to) has a very supportive and helpful service team backing it up, I wouldn't really say that the software itself is user-friendly. With all of it's features (and there are many) comes a fair amount of complexity ... not only with the mass of buttons and somewhat confusing (if not "conflicting") tabs, then certainly with the mass of icons across many of the front-end screens.

As of Jan 2013, one has full access to your information at new.familysearch.org soon to all be moved over to familysearch.org. I have downloaded the free legacy program and it seems to work well, but I do prefer a website with all the visuals like that at myheritage.com. I will give familysearch the 6 months it asked to see if they did make all the inhancements they mentioned before I go to a pay as you go

In summary, I would recommend Legacy Family Tree to a friend.
