I've been doing genealogy for about 30 years and using genealogy software for about 15 years. I use the latest purchased versions of Legacy, RootsMagic and Family Tree Maker. Family Tree Maker is far and away the best for everyday work. It's places mapping is unbeatable and extremely useful when trying to locate and place people with the same surname. However, Legacy wins hands down for books and reports. I export from FTM to Legacy for report making. I don't find any good use for RootsMagic. My file is about 70,000 people.
