I have been using FTM 2010 for several weeks, and am very satisfied with it. Having previously used FTM 2009, there are several features that I have found to be considerably improved. The most significant of these are the 'enhanced nodes' in the 'People' workspace, the improved mapping controls in the 'Places' workspace, and the better integration with Ancestry website. The 'enhanced nodes' feature adds thumbnails and lifespan dates to the 'boxes' in the pedigree. If you have several generations of ancestors with the same name, this greatly reduces the likelihood of confusion when working on your tree. One of the most irritating aspects of the previous version of FTM was its propensity to mis-locate places on the map, even when you entered the correct county and country. This issue has been addressed in the 2010 version by the provision of a push-pin facility, which enables the user to override the software's automatic choice. The integration with Ancestry allows both uploading trees to, and downloading them from the website. However, the trees are still not synchronised, so that working on either one will not update the other. This is one aspect that will hopefully be addressed in the future. The only other major gripe I have with the software is that there is no facility to identify individuals on group photographs. If you have a wedding-group photo with a dozen or more people on it, you can very easily link all the individuals to the one photograph, but in order to know who is who, you have to write tedious descriptions - "the third person from the left on the second row from the front, etc" - in order for them to be of any real value. Having previously been a user of the (free) Family Tree Builder software, which has this facility, it is disappointing that FTM have not made something similar available. Notwithstanding this, the software is both very easy and satisfying to use, and has advanced features that will suit the most demanding of family historians.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'll get my first annoyance out of the way right from the start, then I can get on with what's good about this software.

During installation I was asked for credit card details in order to activate the free trial subscription to Ancestry.co.uk. I really do not like this approach to free trials - if its free, then sign me up and ask for my details at the end of the trial (6 months in this case). This is a bad enough practice when the entire package is being offered for free (and I fully understand why companies do it), but when this is a free trial offered with a piece of paid for software I think this is particularly cheeky.

I did sign up for the free trial though, and this is where this review turns positive.

Although this software can be run stand alone and you can build your family tree without an Ancestry .co.uk subscription, the power of this software really is in the integration with the aforementioned website. The search facility from within the software works pretty well, and the merge wizards for incorporating that information within your tree work very well - most of the time. This allows you to build your family tree very quickly with a lot of information.

It's not without its problems though. I have foudn that I have sometimes ended up with duplicate people, or sibling children of a couple split between 'mother and unknown father' and 'father and unknown mother'. This can be a nightmare to correct in the software, and I still haven't got to the bottom of when and why I get into this mess.

Th ereporting features are pretty extensive, but pretty standard for genealogy software.

By Sue H TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 30 Oct. 2009
Verified Purchase
I originally purchased FTM Deluxe which claimed to have 3 months subscrption to ancestry, but only had 2 weeks. This edition had 6 months and when on special offer was worth considering as subscription to ancestry is £100-150 annually.

The software is powerful. There is starting guide (with a demo to work though- this is based in Diana Spencer and I found it upsetting to have her as an example) there is also a hints and tips booklet, v helpful when the basics are mastered. There is also an online video overviews and help functions.

The basic operation is quite simple, but soon becomes quite complex to use the full facilities. There are several 'views' of the data. It's not clear to me whether it is better to have one large tree with every one on it or split into smaller files with significant branches of the family.

People- where the classic family tree is shown -child their parents, the parents parents etc.. Here two to four generations can be seen in overview. The platinum version shows DOB-DOD and will display a thumb nail image if one is available. If connected to the web ancestry displays a leaf sign to indicate info may be available on this individual. A niggle here is that only one sibling is displayed. So if your grandfather had 4 children only the direct descendants of one is shown at any one time. To access the others you need to highlight grandfather and the children will be displayed at the bottom of the screen. I have one ancestor who married twice and had 14 children. The software asks for a prefered partner and they and their children are shown. You need to recall there is a seconds wife and then switch to them to see that part of the family. To get an overview of the ~200 relatives I've had to print a family tree and stick accoss 2m of wall!
