Genealogy Applications

These are genealogy applications that I am testing. As I explore them, I will include a list of pros and cons for each program.

These 3 programs are certified by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to work with New FamilySearch. They each have the ability to compare your genealogy database with the records in New FamilySearch, copy records between your database and New FamilySearch in either direction or synchronize them with each other.

The Roots Magic New FamilySearch page has excellent video tutorials on its New FamilySearch features.
One great feature of Roots Magic is Roots Magic To Go which installs the application on a Flash Drive so you can run it on other computers that don't have Roots Magic installed.

Ancestral Quest

Family Insight is available for both the Mac OS and Windows.
