FAMILY TREE MAKER SOFTWARE - FOREWORD BY NICK BARRATT, Resident Genealogist on the BBC's Who Do You Think You Are?
"PCs and the Internet have made the task of researching your family history much easier than ever before. With vast amounts of data now archived on the internet, the odds of success for those seeking information on their heritage has dramatically increased.
Using this Family Tree Maker Software, you can organise and store all the data you find on your family and ancestors and then create trees, charts, albums and reports to share with family and friends. Tracing your roots will take some investigative work and lots of time, but the end result will be a truly rewarding and emotional journey into your past!"
FAMILY TREE MAKER 2006:
Build your tree:
Getting started is easy. Just enter the information you already know and watch your tree take shape. As your research gets going, you can add new relatives to your tree storing other information you've collected along the way; birth dates, birthplaces, marriages and deaths. You can easily add notes, photos, images and documents on each person, to tell his or her story.
Search for ancestors:
The program will automatically search the largest online collection of family history information at Ancestry.co.uk. A Web Search Report allows you to compare the search results side-by-side with the information in your tree, so you can quickly determine whether it's relevant. You can then merge the record directly into your Family Tree file
Design trees, charts, reports and more:
Bring your family story to life by designing and customising a wide variety of charts, trees and reports with images, photos, colours fonts and borders. You can even create a family tree album as a precious keepsake to pass down through the generations
Share results with family and friends:
Once you've completed all the hard work and research, it's time to share your results with family and friends. Produce a professional looking family book, print-out heirloom quality family trees, publish a family web page, or email your family file to others around the world
