Genie programs


The following are the genealogy programs & their related web sites that I use regularly:

  • The Master Genealogist (TMG)  – fantastic, flexible, program for both recording your research, sources etc and analysing your data, unfortunately no longer available for purchase but there’s still an active community of dedicated users
  • Support forum for TMG
  • Second Site  –  extremely flexible way of presenting your genealogy from TMG on the web, with a very responsive developer
  • Second site mailing list – monitored by a great lot of helpful, knowledgeable people, including the developer
  • Gedstar Pro– who said you can’t take it with you? For carrying your genie data around on your android based smartphone.
    • Direct import of data from The Master Genealogist and Legacy Family Tree.
    • Import of GEDCOM files to support all other genealogy programs.
  • The Next Generation (TNG) – comparable to the above TMG/Second Site combination, right down to the responsive developer, but generating the web pages as required dynamically from the database instead of static pages generated and uploaded to the web
  • RootsMagic (RM7) – very easy to use and navigate, and with sufficient advanced features to keep me happy. Best of all, can synchronise to my iPad (read only) and fully integrate with FamilySearch

See sub menus for the Online trees I also use.
