Genealogy software is a valuable resource to any family historian. It can not only help you to build your family tree quickly and easily but also includes a ton of extra cool tools and features too.
Any software these days can create charts and reports that will help you research your ancestry. The more popular ones will also link you to genealogy search websites where you can access records containing your ancestors.
There is far more to be discovered within a software program than I can uncover here so please check out this section further.

I purchased the family tree software and I would like to know if I can share this with different families and how do I do this? They are doing their family tree and I would like them to put this on the software I purchased.
Thank you for your query. Your other family members will have to purchase a genealogy software program in order for you to share your research, preferably the same one.
There are a number of ways that you can share your research:
1) Create a GEDCOM file
2) Create reports that can be shared
3) Create charts and save as jpgs
Hope this helps.
