"GeneaNet beat out other traditional software"

A message from Neida, member of the GeneaNet Club Privilege (with her authorization):

"After much trepidation, I'm happy to say that I've now fully committed to GeneaNet and trust it to handle all my genealogical work . This is true trust! I have known about GeneaNet for years, but while I've dabbled with it briefly for a bit, I never really took the time to truly explore all its capabilities and functions. I always went back to standalone genealogy programs because in my head that was what was going to do the job. Still, even then, I kept changing programs because each one of them was lacking something or other in terms of functionality. These shortcomings, as usual, would only become apparent after the trial periods were over and I had already purchased them. Most of the demo versions out there have so many limitations that you really don't get to know what the program is really capable of until after you buy it and use it for a while. As a result, this switching around was making my passion for genealogy quite expensive. Then I switched from PC to Mac and the dilemma started all over again. I love my Mac Air but I found out the hard way that there are huge limitations in software for the Mac, especially in the genealogy field. My software of choice is not available for the Mac and I was faced with having to search again, and no doubt spend more money, on a program that I could live with and was also Mac friendly. The obvious online options, Ancestry and My Heritage, for one reason or another, just didn't meet all my needs for online family tree updating and management. I tried other online programs with the same results. I wanted something simple and truly versatile with no frllls and heavy on archives and documentation focus. Then I rediscovered GeneaNet. For me, it all came down to how archival records are handled. Having the ability to attach the same archival record to each applicable person and documenting the people and other information, (including transcript option, within the record's function itself, really clinched it for me. All my records in one place and organized and at the touch of a button on the right person! Just awesome! With hundreds of records that I need to add to my family tree, I have my work cut out for me, but happy to do it and I feel truly at home on GeneaNet."
