Family Tree Maker--Part 2

In the aftermath of Ancestry's announcement to discontinue of the Family Tree Maker (sales ending at the end of this month, and product support in January 2017), there have been a LOT of comments,  discussions, and blogging. The comments/discussions range from heartbreak, disappointment, questioning the business practices of, and some considering cancelling their Ancestry membership. In short, it's been a whirlwind week!
Among the many blogs posted is Judy Russell's The Legal Genealogist blogpost of her thoughts about Family Tree Maker. She blogged on the best recommendations and alternatives to Ancestry's announcement. I certainly agree with her, including looking at two fantastic software programs--RootsMagic and Legacy Family Tree. No, you don't have stop using Family Tree Maker, but should you decide to switch programs, give these two programs a look. 
Here's Judy's blog:
