I have made some progress on this one.

Just a little bit. I decided on the software I will use – My Heritage’s Family Tree Maker. I was just about to fork out a bunch of money on some software that was not nearly as user-friendly and functional as this one. And this one is free!

I have also started to fill it with all the basics. I only have 2 great great grandfathers (both on my Mum’s side) and that’s as far back as I have been able to get.

Next step is starting to do a little research…



This was not as simple as I was hoping it would be

I could not find the old family tree I made ages ago. Then I re-downloaded the software I remember I used to start that tree (GenoPro), which is no longer free and then wouldn’t let me save the project or register for a demo (it was supposed to email a key to my email address, I tried 3 different addresses and waited ages for them to arrive) after I had put about 50 people in. I certainly would not buy it if I can’t even view the demo. And I really can’t afford it anyway.

Then I looked around at some of the online things; Ancestry.com, Genea.net, Rootsweb, etc… It all looks a bit non-intuitive and tedious. Plus you never know with those things, once you have invested a fair bit of time investigating them you find yourself trapped into paying for features, etc…

Plus, I like a nice visual map.

I won’t give up and say ‘not worth it’ just yet though. Perhaps if I find some more time and can be more patient?...
