"once you master the art of linking individuals from different GenBases, you will not go back to merging ever again. This feature has to be the way of the future." Mark Lang, Genealogical Computing (USA)
"It is very comprehensive and does, as far as I can ascertain from my limited use of it so far, all the things that it claims, and these are many." S.H. James, Computers in Genealogy
"One of the best features I have seen in a long time is the ability to link individuals across databases, without the the need to merge data. Links across databases are clearly identified both by name and colour. You are also able to link across databases when you print a report." Mark Lang, Family Tree Magazine (UK)
