The software doesn't come with a database of names and records. If you have to access a database to do research anyway, why not use a service to build your family tree? Ownership I asked Simon Orde, director at Family Historian, the same question: Why is genealogy software still relevant?
While he praises online genealogy services as a vital part of the genealogy industry that connects people with vast databases of names and records, he draws a stark line between the value of genealogy software and that of genealogy services.
Desktop software, he explains, "allows customers to store their own data on their own PC, under their own control. It may seem like a small detail, but there are big implications. Namely, when you use a cloud-based database, the information isn't yours to control or maintain. When you put your family history together in a desktop genealogy program, you not only own the data, but you own the process.

Cross-database Hints Doing genealogy is like being a detective. This is part of the appeal for many people — building an ancestor's life story through small clues and fractured information. To do this, you can't limit yourself to one database. However, genealogy services lock you into a subscription with complicated user agreements and intellectual property issues, making it difficult to do cross-database research. If you're like a detective, online services limit the scope of your detecting. Orde illustrates this by pointing out that services only provide hints within their own database — you don't get hints about records on other databases.
For example, Ancesty. But with software, you get hints and matches for individuals on multiple databases.
User Changes The cloud-based nature of online genealogy services means other users can change information. While citing information is good practice, an online user doesn't necessarily need to cite the reason for changing data. For example, a few years ago, someone changed my grandfather's death date on a popular ancestry service's database.
My father had to go through the process of fixing the altered date, showing he had firsthand experience and citing the death certificate before the date was corrected. As it turned out, the person who altered the date had mistaken my grandfather for someone with a similar name.
Not an uncommon issue with databases. A Living Record Another reason to buy genealogy software is to build a record of living relatives. Marcia Helzer, a retired school teacher and volunteer indexer for FamilySearch. It should focus as much your living relatives as it does your ancestors.
Online databases, she argues, are great for building backward but not for building forward. In an era where identity theft is a real concern, a privately managed database on your computer is the safer option. Without this accurate paternity information, it is impossible to fill in correct genealogical data. Genealogy software. Ahnenblatt free ver. Legacy Family Tree standard ed.
