I know this is a bit late but can I offer something from my own learning experience. -- Decide which program you prefer to use and stick to it --. I have used Roots Magic 6, FTM 2012 and Legacy 7.5 (all full versions). Obviously they have their own strengths and weaknesses but my experience is that moving complete trees from one to another can play havoc with your data if you make use of any of the "bells and whistles" in one program and then try to move to another (take backups before doing anything) . In addition do not assume that they play well with standard GEDCOM files.
