Is Heritage Collector the same program that was featured at the Mesa Family History Expo? I didn't know that your companies were connected.

Margo - yes, they are related in that Heritage Collector is one of Legacy's add-ons, meaning, it will import your Legacy multimedia.

One question I have about Heritage Collector is will it run under Windows Vista? Cannot find any information on website as to the operating systems it is compatiable with, although I gather from the information that it will run under XP. However I am using Vista.

Yes, it does work with Vista.

I currently have Hertiage Collector Pro 4.5. Can I upgrade it to version 5.1; and if so at what cost? There doesn't seem to be any information on this on their website.

People really ought to be made aware that whilst Heritage Collector superficially integrates into Legacy, in that it can import Legacy information as a single once off operation, it does not push information back into the Legacy database. Personally I don't really consider this to be integration at all. This misunderstanding lead to considerable disappointment when I acquired a copy of Heritage Collector under the mistaken belief that it would tightly integrate into Legacy.

I was about to purchase the Heritage Collector and then I read the comment from Steven, posted just yesterday, stating that he didn't think the program actually integrated with Legacy as a back & forth type of program.
Is he correct? I am very interested in the program, but hate to find out I've wasted my money on a program that's really no different than Adobe Photoshop, Corel or other programs I already have.

Diane - currently, Heritage Collector only imports the pictures from Legacy. There isn't the back & forth linkage. However, I do know the developers of both software programs have been discussing this possibility.

Glen, the upgrade is $29.95 from www.heritagecollector.com.
