5.0 out of 5 stars Yet Another Excellent Genealogy Product Offering November 5, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My wife started using Family Tree maker when it first came out. The last version she was using just before she passed away was Version 8 in 2004. Last year, I found an old backup copy of her work and imported it and was amazed to find that she had 19,500 individual people listed in our family tree - and over 6000 different families dating back as far as 1480. I only planned to update it to reflect the changes in the past 9 years, but then I uploaded the file to Ancestry.com since this comes with a free 6 month subscription to Ancestry.com. Last year I ordered their DNA kit and submitted it to Ancestry.com and was shocked to learn that I am 73% Norwegian. I knew I had distant ancestors in Germany and England, but never knew anything about the Norwegian region. Almost daily, I receive email showing DNA relationships with newer DNA submissions.

Many people write to tell me about minor errors or omissions. I can't even keep up with it anymore. You really have to be into genealogy more than I am to update every new piece of information, especially if the new information conflicts with my own information. After 9 years of being widowed I recently got married again. So now I have a new challenge of starting a new branch in the database. Family Tree Maker is very easy to use in cases of multiple marriages, adoptions and every conceivable situation. I thought it would be more complicated than it is, but they make it relatively easy.

Photographs are easily included as well. Stories can be inserted. Then you may wonder if anyone will ever look at this massive amount of information. They do if you post it on Ancestry.com. I have been very surprised that so many people had been corresponding with my wife who is now deceased. They wondered what ever happened to her. Now they know.

Platform for Display:PC Disc|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Length: 9:12 Mins
Family Tree Maker Platinum 2014 edition has a lot to offer the beginner, but the 6 months of US based web search may be unnecessary for intermediate to advanced users who want to search international records as well as US based ones. The Family Tree Maker, Essentials comes with 1 month US based access, and may be a better choice or the Family Tree Maker, Deluxe which comes with 3 months free access.

Another issue 'glitches' or freezes, appeared after adding family members and web info. *Please see UPDATE at bottom for specifics.*

Is it worth the price to get the latest version? Maybe not. The improved TreeSync function, new Family View for your tree, upgraded help topics and enhanced charts and reports, may not be worth an upgrade from the Family Tree Maker Essentials [OLD VERSION]. I found that in the Help section of the software, the 2012 tutorial was included - not an updated 2014 version - making me think that it's pretty much the same.

This video shows you the software and shares with you some of the features, and why the Web Search function is so great for discovering new family members for your tree. It also mentions the Ancestry dot com subscriptions (international - US plus 15 countries), which may be useful to you in building your family tree.

NOTE: You can check out Ancestory dot com for FREE for 14 days, doing family searches as you would with this software. A good way to see if it will give you what you're looking for before you buy Family Tree Maker!

This family tree software integrates with the Ancestry.com website and if you keep a family tree, this is a very, very good thing. If you purchase Family Tree Maker Platinum software, you get 6 months of the US (not World Wide, just US) Ancestry.com membership for free. This alone is worth about one hundred and twenty bucks!

The difference between the Platinum edition and the Essentials edition of this software is the offer of free membership and what comes in the box. The software is exactly the same. The Platinum edition includes a 314 page instruction book and two disks, one for the software and one with photo-editing software (which I have not used.)

I have been nurturing a family tree (in cooperation with several far-flung relatives) on Ancestry.com for quite a while now. If you are even slightly interested in your family's history, Ancestry.com is an amazing subscription web site that is well worth investigating.

A massive data base that is constantly growing and evolving, Ancestry.com provides information about people who lived in almost every country in the world. You punch in a few facts about your great grandfather who was born in Ireland, say, and up pops his birth records, marriage license, steamship and Ellis Island records and applications for naturalization. It's nothing short of magic. Ancestry.com also links individuals on different family trees and new relatives are discovered and families merged. You can create multiple trees, not just one and they can overlap. You can invite multiple guests to participate on your tree, and you can be invited to participate on other’s trees. You can create a tree for free on Ancestry.com, but if you want to partake in the huge database of information there is a monthly subscription fee.
