Computer Programs

 There are many software packages that can help you organize your family history information. Selecting the right one for you can mean trying more than one, so be sure the ones you do try use GEDCOM, so that you can transfer data to another program without manual re-entry. Some programs can be downloaded over the net at no cost. Many packages offer libraries of data as well; these should be evaluated as if they were separate items – would you buy them by themselves?
