Do try FTM. I have been happy with it. In spite of what some people have said-the only errors I have had is because I did something stupid. Middle names are added with the first name:
Mary Elisabeth then the last name in the next box. Jones
FTM adds the last name of the father to the child....I just delete it out when I have a pstronymic name. Currently most children are bearing their fathers last name. It is just prior to 1900 in Sweden (and other Nordic countries) that the patronymic system was used.
Give FTM a try.
