I got a bunch of family history documents from my parents tonight that I want to organize into a family tree. Does anyone have any suggestions for a) Windows software for building a tree/ancestry and b) good sites for research. The only windows product I've seen is Family Tree Maker, which got pretty bad reviews on Amazon. The main sites I've peeked at are ellisisland.org and ancestry.com. Ancestry.com seems to have a ton of information but can get expensive if you want to look at all the old census, military, birth records, etc.. I've also heard there's some sort of uber-ancestry site run by the Mormons. Anyone ever use it ? If anyone else has any suggestions for other sites/software/books, it would be appreciated. Things specific to Germany would be good as my dad's side is 100% (surnames Kloth - uncommon, & Meyer, very common) thanks !
