Hi. Found it and tried it and seems to work well. I hate buying software..only to find it is not compatible with Win ME. I may buy the deluxe version at a later date. What is it that you like about the deluxe version? Thanks for your suggestion.

Like the easy of moving through the tree and generations. Also the ability to associate pictures with the names. Also being albe to print out portions on the tree for others to help piece together especially the *.pdf format great for e-mailing.
