Still using this and is still one of the best in my opinion. I like how you can also add friendships to your ancestors in it.

Once I got it working, the program seems to be pretty robust, and the multiple views work quite well. That part makes it a little above the cut versus other similar programs. However, getting it to work was another story, and made me rethink the package in total.

At first, I installed without Java package, since I’m running Win 10. Got an open error that “RootsTrust.properties” not found. I then removed the non Java version and re-installed with the Java package, with the same problem. It finally occurred to me that RootsTrust, at least under Windows 10, must be run with administrator privileges. As a long time PC user and administrator, this is a minor annoyance running on my personal system. However, for most locations where I help with PC care and maintenance, this is a show stopper! Sorry, Atavus, figure out some way to get your program to work with “Standard Users” on Windows, and we’ll take a second look.

Biggest Pro: Multi Platform Availability
Biggest Con: Windows version requires Administrator Privileges

I have tried literally every genealogy program and I gotta say RootsTrust is definitely one of my top ones. It runs on EVERY Operating System. Many other programs I think are over thinking genealogy making it more complicated than it should be, but RootsTrust keeps it simple and easy to where it doesn’t cause headaches to cite your sources or anything else for that matter. Also RootsTrust has the best and most beautiful interface. Definitely a must have.

Biggest Pro: Simplicity, Multi Platform and just gorgeous.
Biggest Con: I can’t think of any yet and I’ve been using it since about January 2016.

I really like that Rootstrust works on my home Mac and on my work PC. I run it and keep my data on a Rootstrust UBS stick, which gives me flexibility and mobility. It has all sorts of advanced features that makes it easy for me to manage my global genealogy data with its complexity in terms of geographies, languages, and religions (e.g. Turks in Germany and Bulgaria, and at the time of the Ottoman Empire).

Biggest Pro: multi-platform
Biggest Con: does not work on a ipad
