3.0 out of 5 stars
Family tree maker programme purchases, 21 Aug. 2007
My comment relates to the '* day subscription to Ancestry.co.uk' offered by these programmes (* depends on the version) and this element is clearly a purchase not a 'free trial'. However to activate this one has to provide credit card details and nominally purchase a year's sub which will start automatically when your original subscription expires....unless you remember to cancel it!! This requirement is very hard to find on Ancestry.com website being under terms and conditions (those words barely readable) at the bottom of the web page ie. the area most people never read. In Amazon this is made more clear with an asterisked link to the condition nevertheless this kind of default selling should not, in my opinion, be allowed. If you simply bought this programme 'off the shelf' in a PC shop you would not know about these conditions until too late. So far I find the programme itself is ok but I only award my 3 stars because of those conditions.
