Thanks for your input. I think I will order the deluxe version this week. Like you, my opinion is that FTM lost a great deal of its functionalty when it did away with the FTM 2006 + version 16 platform. The new stuff is so full of bling that this little old 75 year old lady refuses to use it-and by the way I do have a college degree and retired as an accountant. I used computer programs at work for many years so am not entirely ignorant when it comes to software. FTM 2006 + version 16 was really easy to use and looking at the free Legacy download it appears very similar. As I posted before-at least I think I did-I have rootsmagic but don't like it either.
