If you are tired of "keying information into various databases" you might want to try The Master Genealogist (TMG). Information is available at http://www.shollygenes.comhttp://www.shollygenes.com
They use a process called "Genbridge" to transfer data from other selected genealogy programs, which include UFT and FTM, into TMG. Their data transfer far exceeds the data transfered via GEDCOM making the process of "keying information into various databases" much less than with other transfer processes.
TMG has many of the features of UFT in the way they handle source data etc.
