I wrote about BRANCHES nearly a year ago and was impressed with the program. I wrote, "To say that I was impressed would be an understatement. This program has the best user interface I have ever seen in any genealogy program on any operating system. It looks like Google Earth for genealogy."

Now BRANCHES has received a major update and a lower price. The following announcement was written by Sherwood Electronics Laboratories, Inc.:
Sherwood Electronics Laboratories, Inc. announces a new release of BRANCHES, an innovative new Windows™ program that uses advanced mapping concepts, similar to Google Earth,™ to visualize relationships and manage family history records.
According to Jack Sherwood, president of Sherwood Labs, the new version is faster, better and cheaper than prior versions of BRANCHES. "Our feedback from market research indicates that customers want low cost powerful full featured family tree software. They don't want a "bait and switch" "free" version that has many features disabled and that costs extra to get a full version." The new version, according to Sherwood, is faster and can handle larger files. Adaptive zoom makes zooming faster and better, and new enhancements add to visual appearance. Combined with the lower price, the software is the most powerful, least expensive software in the family history market.
The $14.95 price is for the full featured version of BRANCHES and includes future updates. It and can be used on all the computers a user owns. A full featured, 30 day trial of BRANCHES is available for download at www.branchesgenealogy.com.
Sherwood Electronics Laboratories, Inc. has been in business over 27 years and has developed numerous hardware and software products for the mainframe, mini and PC computer environments.
