Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Family Tree Maker 2012 Platinum Edition (PC) (CD-ROM)Family Tree Maker 2012 is very similar to its previous incarnations 2010 & 2011. To be honest, I can see little point in upgrading to 2012, unless - and it is a worthwhile "unless" - you wish to take advantage of the six-month free subscription to Ancestry.co.uk libraries! In fact, the cost of this revision of the already excellent Ancestry software is LESS than a routine online subscription!
So, if your Ancestry subscription is due for renewal, this is definitely worth considering!

I totally agree, as there is so little difference between this version and the 2010 edition it is an utter waste of money buying it, particularly if you are already a platinum member. In my edition there is a fault in so much that when I wish to enlarge a record the record disappears so I am left with a blank screen. This means that in many Cases I am straining my eyes to read the detail of the record, that is, when it is visable.

In answer to the above, I'm not sure what you mean. "2012 Census"? There's no such thing! If you mean 1911 census, then it gives very limited access to the summary pages.
POSTSCRIPT: Since answering this query, I can now confirm that Ancestry.co.uk membership now allows full access to the 1911 Census results - which is a huge step forward. The entry sections for disability and "insanity" are still redacted, thankfully - but each census return is now full searchable.

I am annoyed that I didn't wait 2 weeks to buy the 2012 edition because the 2011 edition does not have the "sync" function, which must be extremely time-saving. I should have suspected that the 2011 version was being flogged for a reason! At least I got the Ancestry.co.uk trial with it. I don't think it's the same as the one the libraries use though.
