The Weekly Genealogical Survey has been published by the New England Historic Genealogical Society (Vol. 18, No. 12, Whole #732, March 25, 2015), and it asked the question - if you use an online or desktop software program to compile your family history research, which one do you use?
The top five responses were -
50% use Ancestry.com
47% use Family Tree Maker
13% use RootsMagic
11% use Legacy Family Tree
7% use Reunion + 7% stated that ‘I use a software program not listed above’
Do you think these number are farily accurate, as far as you can tell. I think that Ancestry.com and Family Tree Maker are the two most popular desktop ptogrames, followed closely by RootsMagic from people that I talk to in Ottawa.
