Carolyn, I think there are two groups working on giving us future options: The UFT side of Genealogy.com and the makers of TMG. Assuming at least one of the two are going to produce a more attractive product than their current offering, we will have a future for our data. And I think that future will require less work on our data than trying to make the move right now.
So if UFT seems the best product for you now, stick with it. The odds are pretty good that you will be able to spend more time on your genealogy and less on fighting the limitations of the database you use.
