Has anybody used any software besides Family Tree Maker?


I purchased FTM 2014 when I got a new laptop a couple weeks ago and it wouldn't open and their patch wouldn't work. Ancestry's customer service people were absolutely useless and pissed me off to no end. Is "the s/w would never open and patch failed" difficult to understand or something? Anyway, I finally just got my money back. I'm *this close* to cancelling my entire ancestry subscription. I've got no patience for incompetence.


I've used FTM since '97 and this will be my first foray with something different. Any suggestions?

All I've used is FTM, but I'm still using 2012.

I have used RootsMagic. They have a free version and a paid version with a few more features. You can try Legacy Family Tree. It has a free and paid version as well. RootsMagic has an Android app available for free just like Ancestry does, but I much prefer FTM and the Ancestry app.
