I am looking to purchase some genealogy software. i am looking for something that is reasonably advanced though reasonably easy to use. I have been using ancestry website for some time but feel constrained on reporting. although value is important I would want to get a program that is more suited to my needs.

Any advice would be appreciated

I tried both of these. I preferred using roots magic, but as I have subscribed to ancestry this package is probably not the one for me. Has anyone any advice on family tree maker as this hasn't got a free version

Thanks to both of you for your advice, it's appreciated

I have used FTM for some 5 years now and are reasonable pleased with it but it still has some niggles in that it crashes sometimes but I have put that down to the fact that my tree is now very large!
The bit I like is that it links to Ancestry and gives links to possible matches(sometimes too many) but any help is always welcome.
