Software for Windows

Genealogists should choose their software according to their personal needs, since requirements vary among individuals. With the wide range of choices available you are certain to find one that fits your needs. Try drawing up a list of the things that are important to you. Set yourself a budget limit and then do a "Google" search for genealogy software. You may also want to visit a web site that evaluates and rates genealogy software for ideas. Compare the specifications and capabilities of those programs that seem to meet your needs and budget. Many software companies  offer a free 30-day trial, so you may be able to take a "test drive" with your top two or three choices. Perhaps you will find a free one that meets your needs! Most programs have active and well-supported user groups.
