by then I had given up and requested a full refund. How can a product continue to be sold with known faults............. It is now Sunday and despite several hours and numerous telephone calls we are unable to install and activate this item. Doesn't seem that different actually, but I have had no problems with it,so I assume any 'wrinkles' from the older version have indeed been ironed out.
Do not buy the download version unless you are prepared for a frustrating time!!!!! It has however managed to uninstall my Family Tree Maker 2014 Premium. A plus point is always the free 6 month subscription that comes with it.
The minus is that Ancestry have decided not to support it any further in a year or so. The way of adding to your tree hasn't changed, so for oldies like me that is a good thing; we can't handle too much change !
There are several choices when it comes to selecting software to create your family tree. Here I will give an overview of the five best genealogy programs that you can purchase today.
Plus the improved Tree Sync™ feature lets you sync your tree from your computer, tablet or smartphone, so you always know you're accessing and sharing the very latest information. I am struggling to get my head around certain aspects of the programme however that is probably down to my age !!!
Being a family historian for the last 40 odd years I have tried various different ways of record keeping. Had been looking at purchasing FTM 2014 software for awhile for my new hobby.
One thing I do like though is the ability to include family events in a persons timeline - so whereas I was previously having to add Custom Events for things like "husband George died", this automatically shows within FTM if the appropriate setting is selected.
