Most of today's genealogists use some sort of computer program to keep track of the information found during their searches. Popular programs include RootsMagic, Legacy Family Tree, Family Tree Builder, Reunion, Family Historian, AncestralQuest, Family Tree Maker, Heredis, Mac Family Tree, and quite a few others. They all have one thing in common: they are all becoming obsolete.
To be sure, obsolescence won't happen overnight. Even so, if you use any of these Windows or Macintosh programs, you might start thinking about your future plans for these programs.
