5.0 out of 5 stars FTM with a year of Ancestry is a great deal February 17, 2006
Verified Purchase
The previous reviewer misunderstood what Ancestry is. Ancestry is not a program. It is a website for genealogists (Ancestry.com) and provides access to all sorts of records, including federal and state censuses, military records, immigration records, archived newspaper articles, and thousands of family tree files already completed by other researchers - plus more. It's great fun and the fastest way to do genealogical research online. The FTM software integrates directly with Ancestry so that you can search through the program and import from online directly into your own files. Annual membership to Ancestry costs $179, so a $89 package that includes the FTM software PLUS a year's membership is a fantastic deal. I hope the previous reviewer takes another look and figures out how to use Ancestry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent bargain for a good program April 27, 2007
By Athena
Family Tree Maker is consistently rated among the best genealogy programs. One unique feature of the program is the merge fuction that you can use to automatically add information found in online sources -- e.g. census, birth records, death records, etc. -- into your local data base with all the proper source citations.

You don't have to buy the newest version to get the latest function; you can actually update this version to FTM16 for free *and* get the benefit of a 1 year subscription to [...].

This is a good deal!

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware signing up for free 3 months online December 29, 2006
They will automatically bill you for $179 after three months, with no warning and no easy way to cancel it. Especially kids and teens who sign up with parent's credit card (required)--beware!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Family Tree Maker Program July 21, 2006
This progeram is excellent for a person who is not all that computer savvy. It makes keeping track of your geneaology as simple as possible. All you need is the information and it is easy to input into the program. This is the third such program I have purchased and utilized and it is, by far, the best for my purposes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Family Tree Maker 2006 Collector's Edition April 7, 2007
This Family Tree Maker is very informative and has helped considerably in my searching my family background and relatives. I would recommend this to any one that is interested in starting a Family Tree of their own. With the help of research using the 2006 Family Tree Maker plus going to the library, I have so far tracked my family's history back to the 1800's. You would be surprised what you can learn and how much fun you can have also.
