Re: Computer program

I like Legacy family tree.  I am not sure what you mean by vertical, but you can view pedigree charts and descendants charts easily, and the children go under the parents when you enter the data.  Also there is a Facebook Legacy users group, that can answer your questions quickly.  If you have a problem you usually can get an answer as to how to do something within a few minutes.  It does have a lot of "bells and whistles" but you can start with a free download of the program from  As you get more comfortable and want to do more, then you can if you wish, get the deluxe version for a relatively small price, and your data remains, you just unlock some of the more advanced features.  There is one negative - it has a christened/baptised field in the individual input screen that as of now, can't be hidden.  You can customize the family view screen, so you don't see it.  I don't use it, but would very much prefer that it were not there.  That said, I have been using this program for my husband's family for many years and find it so much better than other programs that I decided if I could ignore it for his non-Jewish family, I could ignore it for my Jewish one.
