We also received emails from readers who used other programs: Brother’s Keeper, Gene for the Mac, iFamily for the Mac, and Personal Ancestry Writer II for Mac OS X. Several readers wrote to say that they used genealogical programs they designed themselves, and a couple of others wrote that they did not use a genealogical software program at all.


This week's survey asks about whether you share your genealogical information online. Take the survey now!

I have been assigned to do a report for our school newspaper on this subject, and your post has been beneficial. Can you please add more reference to this topic, thanks.
