i’m in the market for a genaology software program. i’m not into geneology for a long time, but ive tried 2 other programs so far (MyHeritage & Aldfaer (which is a dutch program)). both programs are just not exactly what i need (myheritage becomes very expensive in relation to what you get in my opinion, and aldfaer doesnt have the reporting tools that i would like to see.
Ive been playing around with the RM Essentials yesterday and it looks promising, but i still have a few questions for my particular case which i can’t test with the essentials. so i hoped to find some answers here.
i’m working together with my sister and my wife on 3 different branches, we would like to do this on our own computer. i found the merging option (which i cannot test as it is only in the paid version), i found an older movie with drag and drop that shows how easy merging is, but my question, does this merge ALL information, so also media, citations and so on?
1a: additional question, how will the software react with double persons? can this largely been done automatically, or is it a manually task (which will be huge when the database is expanding ofcourse).
how well does RM works from the cloud (microsoft onedrive), that is mainly the place i would like to store everything, A) i can share this map with my sister and wife so we have all media in one place, B) this is the biggest storage space i have.
i didn’t find any option for different languages, did i miss the setting somehow? data like notes will be entered in Dutch, in my opinion it will be very strange (and maybe a little unusefull) if a report is partially dutch and pertially english. is there a way to fix this?
hope to hear from you!
