Bob, I'd really like to hear your thoughts on the strengths and weaknesses of each program. Especially why you don't have a use for Roots Magic.
I've been testing out all 3 of them. So far FTM has a few features I do like, mapping, web clipping etc. But it crashes contently during merging.
The free Legacy seems to offer the most features for any free program. Although I like the Roots Magic interface better.
