my favorite part of Legacy was that the sources usually take 1 page instead of 2 that familytreemaker was taking. that saves paper.

Great program! In my opinion, Legacy exceeds all the other programs I've used in terms of abilities, user-friendliness, ease of learning, and support. I'm also enjoying the Personal Historian program!

Hi all.
I've been a Legacy fan since version 3, I have found it to be a very user friendly program and more than that I have found the Millenia team most helpful and very quick to respond to both questions and problems. Though i have not had any problems with such a brilliant program.
Keep up the good work guy's and gal's.

Hi All. I am a new user of Legacy. I began with FTM about 6 years ago and then switched to The Master Genealogist which I have used for about 5 years. I was reasonably happy with it but when it was time for an upgrade I decided to try Legacy and so far I am quite happy with it. I bought the training DVDs and I think they are very good.

Hi Hugh, Thank you for the good information. What and where is the Milleina

Hi Barbara, I too started with FTM some years ago, tried another one a bit more sophisticated and ended with Legacy about five years ago. Most users seem pretty happy with it and are very supportive, as is the Millenia team. I want it to help organize my research data and most importantly, a ton of sources and notes. It does a good job of it.

Since you recognize that your FTM data may need some cleaning up, I would suggest doing as much of that as possible before transferring over. You will probably have to go thru a GEDCOM file translation to make the move, so it's best to do that with "clean" data.
I would also suggest reviewing the comments on the Legacy Users Group (LUG) archives on the Millenia website concerning making the data transfer,.cleaning it up and entering events and source data.
Good luck and enjoy Legacy.

I am new to Legacy and so far looks like a great program. I have been using
FTM so am trying to correct some information before puting it in to Legacy.
Wow, lots of erros in my FTM should I clean them up first?
Comment by Carol Byers on July 11, 2009 at 10:46pm
This is the best genealogy data-base program I've ever used, and hope they keep improving it. I'll try to contribute as much as time allows. I've tough classes on Legacy, and will do a 12 week class in basic genealogy for the Renaissance Society at Sacramento State University.
