Tracing your family history is an exciting opportunity. You can see where you came from, and why your family celebrates certain traditions and holidays.
Take it from me, I love researching my family history. For example, I found out that my great-grandfather was a champion featherweight boxer, which explains a lot about my scrappiness.
To learn about your family history, you can look around through different sites like the National Archives and Genealogy Today. If you want an easier solution, you can check out a database builder that searches other sites for you.
Legacy Family Tree Genealogy Software is one such program that has plenty of features that help you build your family tree. Legacy gives you the tools you need to start from scratch, but you can also import data from other sources to give yourself a little kick-start.
There are lots of great options to search and import documents to your family tree from ancestry sites around the Internet, like Ancestry.com. You can quickly pull in information on marriages, divorces, kids, addresses, birth certificates and more.
Do you have pictures of your family? Legacy can add pictures to your family tree for easy reference and viewing. You can create new layouts of your family tree based around your pictures, which is really fun to customize.
Legacy even has a timer to let you know when to go to bed. It's pretty easy to be completely engrossed in your family's history, only to realize it's after 1 in the morning!
There are even more features to help you research your family tree if you upgrade to the $40 Legacy Deluxe version, but it's completely optional.
