I'm new to all this. My local small-town historical society is interested in capturing the local history genealogy (and tying it to its small artifacts collection).
It seems most genealogy software assumes you're researching your own family tree, and your relationships are contiguous. Our situation may involve dozens of different families who may or may not be connected, except by the fact they lived in town.
Perhaps unlike usual genealogists, our interest is in capturing just what we do know rather than researching and piecing together what we don't! (at least for now).
What software would you suggest for getting started which can handle this?
We have very little/no budget for this to start but a number of enthusiastic volunteers.
