Free genealogy software

If a family history database program is on your Christmas wishlist, re-consider. There are many programs available which offer FREE downloads so you can try before you buy. In some cases the standard free download may suit your needs.

Check out the following:
RootsMagic There are five programs availalble here. The FREE trials are working copies of the software that allow you to take the program for a spin and get a feel for the interface and feature set. The trials generally have a limitation on the amount of information you can enter and / or a few features disabled.
When you purchase the program you can receive the program on CD through the mail, or can order it as a download so you can unlock the trial and begin using the full program immediately. Any data you have entered in the trial version will be picked up and used by the full version of the program.

In addition, you are invited to be among the first to see and use Roots Magic 4 and participate in the community preview program.
