Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
I, for one, will be missing the closure of the forums, to which i have contributed over several years, both posing questions and providing responses.
For years I have been blaming The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, whose 'Ancestry' family trees are - or were - notoriously difficult to amend, and hence never were.
This year, Millennia Corporation will be celebrating their 29th year in business, and the 17th year since they first released their Legacy Family Tree genealogy software.
Legacy is a feature-rich package that lets you chart family trees, record details about individuals, and otherwise track your family…Continue

I have, for example, recently made a major change based on outcomes from DNA research
However, correcting something on Ancestry is a…Continue
I have just received an email from The Sprague Project. These updates used to arrive every month or so, but it is now two years since the last one.
I know the project is still alive and well, not least because of the webmaster, A. Arnold Sprague's, generous contributions to TNG users, but was becoming concerned that perhaps old age is creeping up on…Continue
