As a longtime user of various genealogy database software I thought it might be a good time to comment. I believe both TMG & Legacy to be fine database managers. Both have very loyal followings. I think the level of control in TMG is exceptional and the GenBridge utility makes it a good choice for those who have large or complicated databases they will be transferring. For the people with smaller size databases or who have just started doing family history Legacy offers a very intuitive interface and is extremely easy to get used to and work with. This may be a reason there are not a lot of users groups out there, no need. On the other hand TMG is ponderous and can be very intimidating, users groups are a nessecity with this software. Just some thoughts-Good luck to all in your search.
