Hi Shane I am hesitant regarding My Heritage, I find the standard of their transcripts poor, but I am in great hope that the acquisition of a quality product like legacy and the Legacy customer support will make My Heritage sit up and think; and up their game.
There are some wonderful features in 9, that as a Beta tester I have seen get better and better, I also trust the Legacy team to be open an honest, so I have no worries regarding using legacy 9. There has never been a better time to try it, and I know it’s not possible to go directly back to 8 from 9, but there is nothing stopping you exporting a gedcom to any program you wish use in the future Regards Carrie From: LegacyUserGroup [mailto:legacyusergroup-boun...@legacyusers.com] On Behalf Of Shane Abdelnour Sent: 05 August 2017 07:23 To: Legacy User Group <firstname.lastname@example.org> 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 Iimmediately I immediately cancelled everything and continued using Legacy. I have used Legacy .ever since. I refused to upgrade to version 9 ..now I will stick to what i know.

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.
