2.0 out of 5 stars Down grade in my opinion 12 Mar 2011
I upgraded(?) from the 2006 version to the 2011 version and I have to say that I was very disapointed. Even after 3 months of use data entry is much slower than it was with the 2006 version.
I use pdf files generated from the reports to email close family changes to the tree. The changes to the way that the pdfs are generated means that I cannot now produce a 1 page version of the all in one tree, or even a 1 page descendant tree for a large branch of the tree. I used the one page versions as they were easy to read and of a small size.
I also produce a descendant tree that shows births, deaths, marriages, residences and occupations giving a compact documented tree. On 2006 the file produced for a 450 person branch is about 453k. The 2011 version has about twice as many pages, is 15 meg in size and runs out of memory around page 110, despite there being 10 gig available on disk available to the virtual memory.
I'm not impressed at having to export a ged file from the 2011 version and load it into the 2006 version to produce reports of any size.
I'm thinking of upgrading back to the 2006 version!

4.0 out of 5 stars Updated 17 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase
First there are not big changes from the privous versions. The only reason I bought it was for the time lines on the maps. It is a particular intrest to me and so worth the upgrade. Otherwise I'm not sure why you would upgrade if you had a recent version of the software. If you have a intrest in building and resarching your family tree then I would recommend this software. It works very well and intgrates very well with the web site. One wish was that you could do direct updates from web site to offline version and back again easily. As it is you have to export or import a file of your tree. Don't get me wrong it is not in any way hard to do but I would expect a one button approch in this day. For me it is important to have a offline verison safe of my tree which has taken a year of work to create. I can't imagin what I would do if the website crashed. Beyond that there are some things that this software does better then the online site. Printing is the first thing that comes to mind. In summary if you already have a version, then think hard about the upgrade before parting with your money. Maybe wait a while untill the cost comes down. If you have no version then you should get one as a backup to your online version. In that case you could get an older version a lot cheaper. But what ever you do this software does work well and so you not regreat buying it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unintuitive, clunky and overmighty! 6 Oct 2011
By Supertzar TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've been building my tree for 10 years. For most of that time, I've used an old version of GSP Family Tree Genealogy Suite (New Version PC), which is dated and incompatible with Windows 7, but intuitive and provides vertical, easily navigable trees.

I have occasionally tried Family Tree Maker, the last time being 2005. I found it over-engineered, difficult to navigate, annoying and more interested in signing me up to Ancestry as some kind of annuity customer than it ever was in helping me document my ancestors. I was therefore curious to see whether things had got any better.

I'm afraid Family Tree Maker is still as awful as ever. Who wants sideways trees?! Who wants to be nagged to join Ancestry? This is a big, clunky, unfriendly piece of software that is vastly overengineered for the simple task we all want it to do. How hard can it be to make a tree program that is easy to use?!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice and easy to use. 25 May 2011
By Suzanne Moore VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I found this very easy to set up on my computer, I have got the previous version already but i had some problems. No problems with this version. It links up to all the information I've already got on ancestory.com and up loads them into the programme software without much effort on my part.
I didn't think I would get the free membership to ancestory.com as I'm already a member but the three months was added to my current time. Which I love, thank you.
It sets my family tree out easily and clearly so I can show other members of my family all the new members I've found. There are several different versions of the family tree I can pick from as well. There is alot on this programme that I haven't been able to go through it all yet but I'm looking forward to have a good play around on it.

3.0 out of 5 stars FTM 2011 okay but not great 11 Nov 2010
By Martin
Very excited to upgrade from FTM 2005 to 2011, however somewhat disappointed with the product. First of all the appearance, although a contemporary look, is much more difficult to navigate compared to 2005. Family members appear as just another data field rather than the unique page per person in 2005 and when you select individual it squeezes all known data on to one page. Surely Ancestry must realise their audience tends to be slightly older than the ipod generation and prefer slighly bigger fonts and a degree of simplicity.
I was anticipating great things with the maps function but my first street name (Dudley St, Paddington) was inaccurate, FTM2011 uses microsoft "Bing" which shows incorrect street names (try it then compare to Google maps) I've been to Dudley St and know Google is correct. Nearly every location I have was unrecognised by Bing and I now need to "resolve" my place names to suit the Software, 644 of them (which can't be right).
Overall I would say if you haven't used any previous product then it's okay but if you have then I wouldn't recommend it (yet), although I have received an update which fixes some bugs.
