Decent software is hard to find especially when one deals with polygamy in the recent past as well as modern blended families. I have tried Kinship editor but find that MS word charts work as well and easily used in publications and presentations. MAQPAR seems a bit fiddly and doesn't appear to create nice charts or diagrams. It can create complex tables of relations but not really what I want. I may resort to paper and pens and then scan for use! If I find other useful ones I will post here as well, thanks for posting the links.
I am new to this group, and maybe you already sorted out your kinship software question, or already know about the software I recommend. But if not, try Community Express, a kinship and genealogy-census program developed by an anthropologist. You can download the personal version for free. I started working on it with my data and then left it because I was on to something else, so I cannot give much of an explanation of its features, I must re-discover it. But it is definitely worth trying.
I know that I'm coming into the conversation late, but I hope someone can help me out. I took the advice of the last poster and sought out the Community Express program; alas, the site is no longer active. That being said, I was wondering if any of you managed to download it before the website went under. Any chance that you could post the program?
