You guys are a curious bunch! After I posted about Transcript I got FIVE emails in one day wanting to know what all genealogy programs I use. I am just going to screenshot the contents of my genealogy programs folder that I have on my desktop which contains all of the shortcuts. The only ones you won’t see on this list are MS Office, Evernote and Picasa which I also use for genealogy. You will see that I have quite a few genealogy database programs on my computer even though I work for Legacy. I use them for testing purposes and to help Legacy customers who are trying to switch over from another program. The only one I don’t have that I want to get is The Master Genealogist but it is a little pricey and they don’t have a free version so I will be watching for some sort of mega sale. Another program that I would like to have is DeedMapper (or something similar). This one is also a bit pricey. The one thing that I don’t like about DeepMapper is that even though it will handle the Public Land Survey System (PLSS) is does it very awkwardly. The program is set up specifically for metes and bounds. I would like to find a program that I can use to map out an entire township/range instead of having to try and draw it out by hand on poster size paper. If anyone knows of a program that can handle this let me know. If you have other favorite programs you can post about them in the comments section.
