I agree with Dahn. I have been using Brother’s Keeper since DOS 3.3 before Windows. The developer is very responsive and corrects any issues quickly. I started it for free as Shareware and found so much value that I registered not long after. The only drawback is not being able to sync with my primary tree, or my secondary Ancestry and MyHeritage trees.

I have been using Brother's Keeper. I do not know how long,

The program supports names in Hebrew, also various other names

can be entered in dedicated fields.


I do not like the tree chart output since the demise of the

dot-matrix printer. I use GED export to use a different

Paint and put that as the first jpg file.

I am looking to purchase a new Genealogy program compatible with Windows 10. I would like it to be able to make Family Trees for 8 to 10 generations with both ancestors and descendants. Making Family Group Charts is also needed. I also would like a place to record notes. And I would like it to show relationships. And be capable of putting children in order of age. And scan for duplicates and errors. A plus if it allows recording of same sex marriages. I don’t want to post on the Internet. A plus also if it can create a book from the information. Ease of use is a must. Can anyone recommend one they are happy with. Please reply privately. Thanks
