I too was a Roots IV user and that program was wonderful once you got the hang of it. I did all my history and a that of a friend. I have been out of the genealogy loop for awhile.....married, new business, child!!! Now I am ready to get back to it....I need a decent program that will accept my Roots information. I have Family Gathering right now, and have not had sufficient time to use it or get comfortable with it, but it does have some problems. I have tons of information, and lots of text. What program should I be purchasing???? ANy and all input greatfully appreciated.
