One program that uses MS Access database is CLOOZ®. While not a genealogical program, CLOOZ® will import GEDCOM files and data from some programs. This program is a "filing cabinet" for all of your records. Details can be found at: http://www.clooz.com/http://www.clooz.com/ It currently retails for USD39.95 plus freight.
There is a similar program for UK records called CUSTODIAN®. Custodian is not a family tree program, but a series of databases with pre-defined forms, specially designed to store genealogical information. Custodian consists of a series of data-entry forms in which you can enter your information from lots of different sources (UK based). All the principal names from these forms are automatically included in a Master Index which you can browse, search and then access any record from. Import and Export of GEDCOM and CSV files is supported. Details can be found at: http://www.twrcomputing.freeserve.co.uk/custodia.htmhttp://www.twrcomputing.freeserve.co.uk/custodia.htm It will cost you UKP48.95 which includes airmail to Europe.
Another note-keeping system is BYGONES®. Bygones is a computerized genealogical note-keeping system in computer database form, for genealogists with laptop or desktop computers. If you have a laptop or desktop computer available where you do research, you can record your genealogical research notes on your computer as you do your family history research. In addition to the Research database for entering research notes, Bygones also has databases which may be used for related purposes, such as: creating an "index" of the information in your research notes, keeping track of genealogical correspondence and correspondents, creating time lines for your families, creating to do lists of pending research tasks, entering information on sources that are important for your family history research, entering information on the localities you do research in, entering spelling variations and soundex codes for your surnames, and for entering scanned maps, scanned family pictures, and scanned documents. Details about BYGONES can be found at: http://home.utah-inter.net/bygones/index.htmhttp://home.utah-inter.net/bygones/index.htm And the best part about BYGONES is that it is "freeware"!
