I am another refugee from TMG. I just bought RM as the best [for me] replacement for TMG. I looked at FTM, RM, Legacy, and Family Historian. I downloaded any free versions to see how i would like the programs. The clincher was Rootmagic's ability to do a direct import from TMG and "witness" support. In addition, I just felt "comfortable" as I got use to the different views. I liked Family Historian also since it does a direct import as well and the decision was a close one.
I have been browsing the postings to learn more about RM and I have seen that some people use other software in addition to RM. I might end up buying Family Historian in addition to RM.
I am wondering what problems are solved [or at least improved] by having multiple genealogy software apps?
I have not done any genealogy work for several years. Luckily, I had kept up-to-date on TMG so there was no issues there. I am retiring at the end of next year and I expect to spend a good bit of time working on genealogy. But, since I have been away from it for several years, I am kind of out of touch. So your inputs are welcome.
