October's issue highlighted the benefits of Genes Reunited, so for anyone who missed it, here’s a link for www.genesreunited.co.uk/ The Ancestry.co.uk article in last months newsletter obviously went down a treat, as many of you took out a subscription or free trial, following publication. I hope you enjoy Ancestry as much as Carol and I do. Click here for more information.

Family History Software
This months article is about Family History Software! Finding the right software and getting the best out of it will help to bring your family history research to life.
Most family history software programs are simple to use, with good help files to get you through anything a little tricky! You will find many of them allow you to add photo's and even videos to your tree and also add notes in a scrapbook area, which will help to make your research more interesting. You can add notes about your ancestors work; where they lived; maybe a photo of the Church they attended and so on. You will enjoy this much more than simply building a list of names and dates!
Carol and I use 'Family Tree Maker'. However we are giving you as much information as possible about a whole bunch of software programs here. Look through them all and decide for yourself which one suits you best.
We'll provide a link, where possible, for you to purchase your selected program and a link to learn more and download any free programs.
List of family history software:
There are many more programs available but we have selected the above six which we believe to be the most popular. If you require more choice then go to our online shop for a vast selection: http://astore.amazon.co.uk/familyhisto04-21
We hope you have enjoyed the above article.

Do you have any problems with your research? Let us know about your problem and I’ll get my team to try to sort it out for you. This service is only available to subscribers of this newsletter. You’ll find our Email address at the bottom of this newsletter.
I can’t stress how important it is to join your local ‘Family History Society/Group’. You will gain lots of information and advice by being a member. They don’t usually charge a fortune to become a member and the benefits are enormous. You’ll find a link on our site to most Family History Societies/Groups and if yours is not listed, then pop along to the local history section at your local library and ask about your nearest group.
That’s all for this month folks…see you soon.
