The Master Genealogist

I was sad to learn that The Master Genealogist will not be supported by Wholly Genes after this year. However, the reality is that this program is still the very best available and will likely continue to be for the foreseeable future. So long as the users of other programs are willing to accept inferior products, there has been no incentive for TMG's competitors to develop the features, flexibility and advanced function that TMG provides. Without TMG, there would be no Second Site, and there truly is no competition for that -- serious or otherwise.

As a genealogist who has tried out practically all the programs on the market, I will not be running away from TMG. I will stick with it for as long as it is viable. There is no reason to expect that it will not work for another ten years or more, and John Cardinal has promised continued support for Second Site.

That's good enough for me.
