Having already researched my family tree a fair bit, I purchased this software mainly to allow me to print out charts of the tree for other family members.
I was very disappointed to find that, although there is a really nice selection of charts, not one of them will include the full tree, in fact I can't seem to make this software display my full tree anywhere at all, rather it shows simply a couple of generations back.

Not a lot of point in that.

Having worked in computing most of my life I was undeterred by other reviews complaining about the trouble they had installing this software thinking it was just lack of experience. Having now spent the best part of 4 hours trying to install it on different computers with different operating systems to no avail, I have given up. The software is a complete aberration, not only will it not install, it won't uninstall cleanly needing a system restore to get rid of it. Who do they think they are putting us through this nightmare !

This program would not install on Windows 7 or XP and this version is no longer supported by Avanquest who advised me to buy the latest version to receive technical support.
I will therefore be filing a claim for a refund and would never buy another Avanquest product.

I bought this because I wanted a template to put the family tree on so that I could email it to various family members. It doesn't do this. The help function is as useful as a chocolate teapot. It didn't cost much but I should have not bothered anyway. The only reason I have given it two stars is for the 1 Month free subscription to Ancestry.

I was trying to help my Dad put together all his scrappy bits of Family Tree paper and being a complete novice (both of us) wanted an inexpensive and simple to use package. Does an excellent job, and having gotten more involved, this software appears to go well beyond the basics even though it is simple to use (he is 86 and can work it!)

I can't falut delievry etc. but I have been using the 2005 version since its release and I much prefer its format plus it seems a lot more stable. This new version crashes sometimes. On the plus side, the linking searches to Ancestry are much enhanced.

We needed a new version of Family Tree Maker to use on a new laptop with Windows 7. This product was ideal and reasonably priced. It's not too different from previous versions and we get on with it very well. It does what it says on the tin.

After several attempts working with the helpdesk of Ancestry.com to get this product to work on my Windows Vista pc, I gave up. Don't bother buying this product if you're running Vista, I say! I sent it back and got a refund.

I've been looking for a way to upload a family tree and be able to print it. This is exactly what I wanted and enables me to do everything I need to in one place. Brilliant!!
