Tree builder software is available from several different sources, my particualr favourite is the one from MyHeritage.com and unsurprisingly is called Family Tree Builder. Best of all it is a free download and allows you to upload your tree to the web for free (within limits) You can load up to 250 people to your online tree when you will have to make the decision whether to use one of the paid for packages from MyHeritage. 250 people gets you started and gives you enough experience to decide whether you have got the bug or not.
Researching your family tree will take you into the realms of searching various genealogical databases. A good place to start is the data held by the LDS Church (Mormons) in their Family Search website and is free to search. Other sources you will find useful are the World Connect Roots Web search which will take you in to other peoples trees, a very useful source of data when the branches of your tree cross the branches of their tree. I have found relations I was not aware of and as close as cousin four times removed. The Canadian Government maintains a database of useful and interesting family data for those with links to Canada. Another useful site related to Canada has data from several Census and is called Automated Genealogy. This site is good for the way it links people in one census with later or earlier census data. Finally, one very useful source of UK data is the "Online Parish Clerk" or "OPC" sites for UK data. Probably the most comprehensive and well put together of these is the Dorset OPC site. For me, a treasure trove of family information.
