  • An offer on Family Tree Maker at £29.95

    Just had an email for this - is it worth it - I have 2017 - anyone using latest version?


    this is what they say.....

    WELCOME TO THE FASTEST, SMARTEST NEW EDITION

    It's been thirty years since Family Tree Maker was born and it's only fitting that we introduced a new edition that takes this grand old brand to places its original creators could only have dreamed of. Where changes you make to your tree on your Mac or PC are automatically backed up to a secure cloud vault every fifteen seconds. Where your tree can be instantly fact-checked by a relative half way around the world on their smartphone or tablet. Where you can turn back time to erase mistakes you made even a thousand changes ago. Where you can arrange for your tree to be passed on to a successor of your choice along with your Family Tree Maker license to ensure your legacy lives on.

    That's just a small part of the new world of Family Tree Maker. And you can get in on the fun by upgrading to FTM 2019 today and save up to 70%.

    THREE DAYS ONLY. BEST UPGRADE PRICE EVER.

    We'd like to invite you to upgrade and save up to 70% off the regular price. If you've been hesitating there's never been a better time to see what you've been missing. This is not only the lowest upgrade price ever, it also includes any other updates or upgrades we publish for a whole year from today – all yours for FREE as well. Click here to learn more.
    TOP TEN REASONS TO UPGRADE

    Here are some of the best reasons to upgrade if you have the previous version, FTM 2017. If your version is even older, there are even more features in store for you – click here to learn more.

    10. Turn Back Time.

    This one might just be worth the whole upgrade. The latest edition of Family Tree Maker now keeps track of every one of your last THOUSAND changes. Lopped off Uncle Harry's branch of the tree by mistake three days ago but your last full backup is three weeks old? No problem. Simply roll back to just before the accident with a single click. Then use the comprehensive Change Log to restore the moves you meant to make.

    9. FamilySearch Integration 2.0.

    Lots of news here starting with the ability to download an entire branch from a FamilySearch tree into Family Tree Maker. But the really big news is that upgrading gets users hints linked to more than SIX BILLION online FamilySearch historical records. A unique new source of records for Family Tree Maker users – for free. Sweet.

    8. Hints in the Index.

    Once found only on tree views, those little green Ancestry leaves and FamilySearch hints now appear in the people index too. No more scrolling through branches to find all the latest hints. And you can check for hints for a particular family name in the Index or in a saved list.

    7. Smart Filters.

    In the previous edition we introduced the ability to save filtered lists. Now those lists just got a whole lot smarter. The new Smart Filters create lists that actively gather any new people you add to your tree who meet that filter's criteria. For example, if your filtered list is for military service, when you add two more service men or women to your tree, they'll be added automatically to the military service list. Simple as that.

    6. Folder counters.

    You can stop peeking into folders to see if there's anything in there. Now numbers on your folder tabs show the quantity of items stored in each one. Simple idea. Big time-saver.

    5. Profile Picture perfection.

    Clean up the look of your tree with our new profile picture-cropping tool. Smart technology detects the person's face and zooms in just the right amount, then crops a perfect square so that it fits perfectly on each leaf of your tree. And best of all, the original photo is not touched.

    4. Tree Browser.

    Get the tree you're looking for quickly with this new window into your tree files. Search a family name and find all related trees wherever they are – on Ancestry, on your hard drive, or up in the clouds. And for each tree you'll have everything you need to know or do at your fingertips. Does that FTM tree have a linked Ancestry tree, and if so, under what name? No links to an Ancestry tree? Click Download in the browser to get it all synched up.

    3. TreeVault® Cloud Services.

    With TreeVault, Family Tree Maker is no longer an isolated desktop application, but rather the hub of a growing ecosystem of mobile apps and cloud services. View changes in your FTM tree in realtime on your smartphone or tablet. Know what the weather was like the day your grandfather was born. Sleep better knowing that an up to date copy of your tree is securely tucked away in the cloud, that someday will be passed on to the next generation for you.

    New services will be added over time, but here's the starting lineup:

    Emergency Tree® restore service. TreeVault keeps a continuously updated copy of your tree ready to hand back to you if your hard drive should crash or some other catastrophe strikes.
    Family Tree Maker Connect is a FREE mobile app (for iPad, iPhone and Android phones and tablets) that displays your latest FTM tree anywhere, any time – even when your computer is off. Handy for sharing your tree with relatives or for using your iPad as a second monitor with your continuously updated tree. And with the new Sticky Notes feature, your relatives can send Family Hints directly to that leaf on your tree.
    Historical Weather® puts color in your family story with more than a billion historical weather records. Dates will never be boring again. Consider:

    Next of Kin® allows you to designate a successor to your TreeVault account to pass along your family tree. You will get a certificate that may be included with a will, providing instructions and passcodes for taking over your account along with your Family Tree Maker license.

    2. No more upgrade costs, guaranteed for a year.

    Just in case you were worried you'd be upgrading only to find out the new version you just bought is already obsolete a few days later, that's not going to happen. This upgrade offer includes a guarantee that you won't pay for any updates or upgrades we introduce for at least a year.

    Personally, I have given up on FTM. I bought Family Historian. I bought 2017 but couldn’t get on with it. 2019 promised so much morevand better that I ordered in advance. 6 months later, it still wasn’t available so I cancelled and got my money back. Going by the posts on various groups on FB, it is far from perfect. Different problems with each of the versions Windows and Mac and some problems common across both.
    I can recommend Family Tree Maker Freetalk group as you will get loads of advice and help. The official FB group admins are very pernickitty and controlling and don’t like any questions they deem to be critical in any way. You could easily find yourself banned without right of reply and possibly without explanation.

      I did try the official FB group and walked away, wasn't my thing at all. I really do use it to synch records from Ancestry, and the odd report.
