I really like Legacy except for its lack of Unicode. I fear its demise due to its outdated technology. My ideal would be for Legacy to be rewritten on new technology and kept as it is except for addition of Unicode. That would make it as close as possible to perfect. I hope that is what

While this is not a Legacy question, since MyHeritage is now the new owner of Millennia it might be worth asking about their system. Now I have never used MH until just now, but I did have an email from a distant relative of my wife, in France, inviting me to see their tree on MH. So I just

One of the concerns that I am seeing in this set of messages is a fear that MyHeritage will be able to extract a copy of your tree from your local PC through Legacy. To do that, they will need to get Millennia to make changes to the Legacy program, which I doubt that they will do so long as they
