What programs Will I be required to buy and how much will that run me?

The only program you need to purchase is RootsMagic. Students can purchase it with a special code for $10.00. You will need to compare RootsMagic against another genealogy software program, you can decide if you want to purchase that or not. You could always go to a local FHC to review the other software.
