I'm still using my ancient Sierra Generations but recently got a superior program called Roots Magic. It seems very agreeable to importing most gedcoms and at $30 seems like a bargain now. Had polled other genealogers using FTM and 70% switched to Roots Magic for ease. Dithered over going with FTM after Generations ceased support but now I'm glad I waited. Viewing the FTM trees bogs my system to a crawl which isn't easy with high speed cable and one of monster fastest gaming & surfing computers available. Like you, I never had a prob with Generations. Yet seeing so many FTM forums made me wonder how tricky that is? Roots Magic is more in line with Generations if you liked it.
