Internet Genealogy: April/May 2013 Issue


The lead article in the April/May issue of Internet Genealogy magazine is a review of Legacy Family Tree 7.5 by regular IG writer Tony Bandy. Legacy ranks second as the most popular genealogy database software, at least locally. The article explains the software and it's capabilities. While praising it as powerful overall Tony finds a couple of nits to pick, the intimidating program interface and general approach for the newbie  and some clipping problems when larger fonts are selected.
