3.0 out of 5 stars Irish records - care of the Latter Day Saints, 18 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Family Tree Maker 2012 Platinum Edition (PC) (CD-ROM)
Bought the platinum edition to get access to the Irish records on the Ancestry web site (you don't get this with the standard version) but these seem to only contain data that can be found (for free) from the Latter Day Saints (Mormons) web site. I was hoping to gain access to the Irish GRO Births, Deaths and Marriages records but this was not the case.

The software itself - seems more buggy than the 2011 version - looks like it was rushed to market without adequate testing. The first thing that happened when I installed was that it downloaded a fix to the software.

Ancestry do appear to be very mercenary (may be it's an American thing) - they try to squeeze the customer for access to records that are in many case free from else where e.g. US records.

Apart from that it is a decent piece of software - but I won't be upgrading come 2013.
