Shane, and Donna:   I had the same experience.  I finally managed to cancel my 
subscription, but large pieces of my family tree were extended, some correctly, 
some definitely incorrect.  I, too, have used Legacy since long before it 
became “Legacy”, and thru the years convinced many friends to become Legacy 
users.  I still haven’t mastered all the benefits available in Legacy 8, and  I 
have resisted upgrading to Legacy 9.  Now I am sure I will stay with Legacy 8 
as long as it still functions on my computer.  I’m disappointed, but hope this 
works out for Millennia.

Subject: Re: [LegacyUG] Legacy Merger. Like Donna, i tried my heritage some 
years age, I found someone had copied large chunks of my family tree, so 
I immediately cancelled everything and continued using Legacy. I have used 
Legacy .ever since. I refused to upgrade to version 9  I will stick to 
what i know.

I do not have a MyHeritage account, but when I looked at it again after the 
merger announcement, it seems to be a family tree website.  I searched for some 
of my ancestors and saw errors in just the little bit they let me see without 
an account, just as when I search the Ancestry trees.

I have used Legacy just about from its beginning, through all the versions.  I 
do not used the search features; I just want good software that lets me 
document names and personal data, events, and sources in an efficient manner, 
and then lets me print useful and well-formatted reports.  I also use it to 
create webpages for my own family history website.  I don’t upload family trees 
to sites like Ancestry and MyHeritage or Genii.  I want a website that shows 
complete source documentation and event notes that are as long as I want.   The 
thing I would like Legacy is to allow drag and drop on the webpages instead of 
just source code.  I have tried TNG more than once, including having them set 
it up, etc., and then paying someone to help a bit, but I just can’t master it. 
 Legacy webpages are easy for the reader to maneuver, and I like that 
uncluttered aspect.

Through the years I have tried most of the other genealogy software, but Legacy 
has fit my needs better than any.   I do genealogy research on a client basis 
also, and I use Legacy if the project is large enough to merit it.  It creates 
footnotes for me to paste into the narrative report I write for the client, as 
well as printing reports when needed and creating a simple family tree for the 
client, if the project is large enough.  I create a family file and point them 
to the Legacy free download so they can see literally all my research.

I am hoping for the best.
