Legacy Family Tree review and giveaway
Genealogy is an interesting hobby and past-time for many people. Have you always wanted to try to get together more information about your relatives who have lived before you? I have always been interested in learning more about my family on my mother's and father's side. I was excited to have the opportunity to review software designed to help organize information. Legacy Family Tree does just that. It is a database program used to enter family information.
The download and installation process was simple. There was a thoroughly informative tutorial that covered the basics of what is needed to get started using the software. There is a 45 minute tutorial, or a shorter 15 minute one. There are also other tutorials available for a fee that help you delve deeper into the different functions of the software. I have an aunt who has done a lot of research into our ancestry so one day I think we will get together and compare information. That is, one day way way in the future after I've done much more research.
You can download the standard edition of the software I tried out here for free. Or, you can win a copy of the Deluxe edition. I had the opportunity to review the Deluxe edition, and the people at Legacy Family Tree are also giving one of my readers a chance to win the Deluxe edition as well. Here is what you have to do to get your entries in.
Mandatory entry: Visit Legacy Family Tree and tell me what interests you about the software.
