Hi
Like Mike I also use Rootsmagic for my ONS -have done so for over 10 years and find it is very easy to use and it happily accepts unconnected individuals. I like the fact that I can easily join people to the appropriate family later as I find links ( or unlink them when I discover mistakes !) You can add notes to people and also pictures, scans of documents and other media.
I looked at Custodian but could see that it offered anything I could not do with Rootsmagic.

Hi Carolyn,

Thank you very much for your message! The way you described how RootsMagic works with the "unconnected" individuals and being able to make notes is exactly what I am looking for.  You described perfectly what I am looking for! I will be downloading RM tonight and I"m looking forward to using it.  This group has been great and thanks to you and Mike, I now feel confident which program will be best for me. Thanks again! :)
