5.0 out of 5 stars Ancestry for beginners, and experts 8 Dec 2008
By G. Horsham VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
What a wonderful product for storing and sharing your family tree. I was half expecting to be blinded by science with this software, with long detailed descriptions of why things work a certain way and possibly having to rigorously enter all exact details in a certain order. I can happily report that Family Tree Maker is a joy to use, and one that the more experienced you get, the more benefit you can get out of it.

Installation was straight forward and easy to register (the deluxe version grants 3 months "Essentials" membership to ancestry.co.uk - 6 months for the platinum version). The "Getting Started Guide" gives slightly more than brief details of the main features such as installation, setting up a new tree, adding media clips and printing the tree.

So using my standard approach to using new software, I ignored the guide and got on with the job in hand. I started off entering my details (date of birth, marriage etc), then I noticed you can add in the place of marriage, and it will allow you to look up the exact place (must be a list installed with the software as the look up works whilst off line), but even if it cannot resolve the place name, you can still enter it.

Entering other details is very easy. There is a quick entry pane for adding new people and children of an individual, and if you select one of these, there is a further more detailed pane to add date of death, marriage(s) etc as well as media clips, notes and tasks. All in all, a very comprehensive list of attributes that can be added for an individual (dates of degrees, confirmation etc) plus you can add your own custom facts/notes too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really a great programme 26 Nov 2008
By Birmingham Book Reader VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
For a long while I have been wanting to start to sort out my family tree. This programme has been the answer, the CD is easy to install. The tutorial is very helpful. Already I have the makeing of my family tree going back over 100 years. The 6 months free registration to some helpful websites is vital.
Finding out your family tree does take time, this CD will not give you a long tree without some work. The Web is on the whole answer either but this great set points the family historian along the way.
A super buy, highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Software. 31 Dec 2008
By Curlynob TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I don't know whether it's just an age thing, but recently in my mid thirties I started to become more and more intrigued by the history of my family. My Mother and Father come from quite different backgrounds and as my Father died when I was quite young I know very little about his side of the family. This program was simple and easy to use. I had it up and running quickly, and to be honest with only minimal attention to the instructions I found it very easy to find my way around.

Once a few names had been entered, the software automatically started to find ancestry artefacts like my Father and Grandmother's Death Certificates. Some of these ancestry artefacts were included in the price, but pretty quickly the software started asking me for money to display additional artifacts it had located - some of which obviously were not relevant to my family tree (unless i've been lied to and my Grandad is really from Canada). This sofware should be considered the start of your Family Tree adventure, but get ready for a lot of work and additional expense.

1.0 out of 5 stars Family Tree Maker 2009 17 Feb 2009
I was expecting and upgrade of the Family Tree Maker Program 2007 only to find a completely new program that is nothing like the original. The thing that upset me most was the inability the publish my own book. I do not want it done by the program vendor at some considerable cost.
I have reverted to my old program.

4.0 out of 5 stars ...does what it says on the tin... 18 Dec 2008
By Mr. H TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
After a spate of family deaths, it's fallen to me to try and pull together the strands spread far and wide, so this couldn't have come along at a better time. As someone new to the whole notion of genealogy software I was looking for something to hold my hand through a new experience. So, was Family Tree Maker 2009 Deluxe the right choice?

Well, yes-ish.

Installation was a breeze, something that shouldn't delight me, but still does, after wallowing in so many buggy products over the years. Now, to be fair, I had cheated and already had a pile of birth, marriage and death certificates to input, something that definitely helped. But once things were up and running, the learning curve was simple enough, although with a product as in depth as this one, there were a few WTF moments, as I toiled to understand what was expected of me.

However, the basics were dealt with well enough by the "Getting Started" guide, so that was enough to start a basic family tree. However, there does seem to be a multitude of ways to do the same thing. Having a single point of entry would help out novices like me. I also found the Interactive Training Tutorial not much cop.

But, so far, its turned out to be a fabulous package, which does everything I want it to, and doubtless a thousand other things that I don't know I want yet. But will. Highly recommended.
