Holiday Gift Guide: Legacy Family Tree Software Giveaway

Do  you know much about where you came from? Who your ancestors are? Have you thought about researching your family tree? Interested in genealogy? My mother started a family tree on a few years ago and when she did I just took off an ran with it. I can’t see I did the research myself but I found a site that had and our tree now has close to 500 people dating back to approx 1760. The one thing about is everything is hosting on their server. How nice it would be to have all the information at my fingertips and saved on my own computer.

Legacy Family Tree software makes it easy to preserve your genealogical information. Family trees containing millions of people can be recorded, displayed and reported in a variety of styles and formats. Legacy includes all standard genealogical reports, as well as calendars, time lines, questionnaires, research logs and a multitude of blank forms and more!

Legacy keeps track of names, alternate names, dates, places, events, notes, sources, pictures and sounds and presents them on screen in such an intuitive manner that you can easily see the big picture of your entire family. It is easy to navigate through all your family links using the Family View and Pedigree View screens. Moving from generation to generation is a breeze. Adding new individuals and marriages can be done at any time and in either view. Editing and adding new information is simple and understandable.

You can even print an entire book about your family, complete with pictures.

Legacy can calculate the relationship of everyone in your Family File to a specific individual. It can also figure the age of an individual at every important event of their life.

You can store huge amounts of information. Parents can have up to sixty children, individuals can have multiple sets of parents, unlimited alternate names, events, sources and pictures.

I admit I have not yet had a chance to dive into my Legacy program. It is not something you can just pop in the computer and enter a few items and be done. However I’m very excited about transferring my current information into this new software. Thankfully Legacy has a Guided Start Up Wizard that will help me do just that. I can’t wait to get all my information in and start looking at some of the reports they have to offer. Here are just a few screen shots of the program:
