I am new to genealogy and genealogy software. My parents and I have spent days upon days researching which software to buy. We are now stuck between The Master Genealogist version 9 and Family Historian.
My grandmother has done years of research into our family history, but it is all on paper. I would like to take our genealogy into the present and put it on the computer. I have recently impulse bought RootsMagic and to be honest, can't stand the program. I purchased it because it was ranked on many review sites as very good and because it can make read-only CDs to be given to other family members. I have had major problems with the source documentation as I am a type A/perfectionist personality and want to document everything accurately, and I am also having to lower the resolution of scanned photos to place into the media portion of the program. Even at the lower resolution, the photos still have a number of problems (including resolution dots and lines that aren't on the original imported image).
What I would like to know is:
1.) Does The Master Genealogist version 9 allow the user to make CDs/DVDs of the information?
2.) Does The Master Genealogist version 9 work well with scanned photographs?
Thank you very much for any response.
