I also prefer the easy of data entry in Legacy, I bought the Ancestry with the merge feature and it never works right either. It constantly error ed and the only way was to down load it as a new tree each time I did that, it was crazy, had to give it a new name and then delete the old tree.
I gave up and went back to Legacy. I save as a regular Ged.com and of course it doesn't save all your photos and all of that but I did find that it did list any items I saved as sources, but without the actual photo of the source. I created a folder on my computer to store my HARD copies and then saved them to my Legacy file, individually. I wish Legacy did import all the info from ancestry, if you want that feature, there really is no program that does that well unfortunately, not even Ancestry's own.
