I hesitate to reply here; but already stuck my foot in my mouth, so now I will "chew vigorously." :)Family Tree Maker is a great program in itself. Don't get me wrong. It's a basic, somewhat easy-to-use software. It does not, however, have the capacity to seriously document sources and such to give a complete view of your research work. UFTree is for the serious genealogist. Now that is is no longer being updated, that is why so many are going to The Master Genealogist software. I guess it's really all in what you desire from a program.
