Have you used RootsMagic to start your work?

I'm still confused about which program to use. I'd rather use a Mac program but still nothing that I'm ecstatic about using.

Yes, I exclusively use RootsMagic 4 for my genealogy research. The move from Legacy to RM4 was a breeze. I love how RM4 syncs with NFS. Very intuitive for me, so I have found my program of choice.

Good luck in your quest. I understand how hard it can be to find something that just fits right. There are so many good programs to go over and find out if they click with you.
