Thanks for the imput. I've been playing with the free version of RootsMagic the last few days. I have one question: the index of names does not have a "search" feature. If this feature part of the paid version? I have more than 15000 names in my database and scrolling is too tiresome to go from one person to another, especially if they are alphabetically separate! Because I switch back and forth from my laptop to me netbook, I like the flash drive feature.
