Do I Still Need a Desktop Genealogy Program (whine, whine)?

Wikipedia Commons Public Domain
This question comes up over and over again in my service as a family history consultant and as an LDS Church Family History missionary. My explanations have fallen on deaf ears most of the time. As consultants and missionaries, we try to provide the very best of our knowledge to our patrons. We want to help them be successful. However, many people don't really want to be successful because it takes effort. GENEALOGY TAKES EFFORT! Effort means giving it more than five minutes in a rush to other things or tick it off of your to-do list!

The reasons for using a desktop genealogy program (in addition to the FamilySearch Family Tree) are many. Since I have never been able to give a satisfactory explanation, I am pointing you to my friend Renee Zamora. Her article here explains, in depth, much better than I ever could. Yeah, you may have to work at little, but the effort is worth it!
