Re: Computer program

My personal opinion is Brother's Keeper.
I have been using this since 1990's and it has
2 major good features.

1) I can document with photos, documents (pdf, doc, txt and
any other, but may not open from within the program).

2) It is not Internet based and I do not need internet access and
no information is on the internet. I do not have permission from
everyone to upload their information, and i do not think
any site is hack-proof.

3) Quick support considering the original developer responds.

BK is usable out-of-the-box and can be downloaded for free
for trials.

I can de-link people so if a person has a marriage annulled or divorces,
the spouse and all their relatives are de-linked.

The only problem I came on was each person needs (or needed) to be
binary, Male or Female. Since I do not always know by the name, I need a
way to flag these entries for further investigation.

There are many reports, but I like to export to a different
program and produce 50 foot wide family tree charts, but the reports
there are limited.

Can anyone recommend a genealogy program that is vertical and simple to use? I stopped researching years ago after entering 600 names when my upgraded program became too complicated, but I would like to start researching again.

Thank you.
