So You Are Totally New to Family Tree Maker

So You Are Totally New to Family Tree Maker

Ref: UTP0371

Family Tree Maker, usually called FTM, is Uk’s largest selling genealogy program. It has enjoyed huge success and is now in its 22nd iteration as FTM 2014. In December 2013 Ancestry.com announced Family Tree Maker Mac 3 which was released in March 2014.

The program has developed extensively and since purchased by Ancestry.com in 2004 it has become even more tightly integrated with the Ancestry.com database. It has also become very internet aware with its use of Bing Maps and the ability to link to internet sites like Trove from within the program as well using a very convenient web clipping and merging capability.

The program is sold in retail packs that include access to Ancestry.com (or Ancestry.co.uk) paid databases.

This book is intended to be the first of a series about Family Tree Maker, and covers the absolute basics that new users, with very little computer understanding can use to get up and running.

The book takes new users through installation, registration, activating an Ancestry.com subscription, followed by an introduction to creating or importing files. It then introduces the eight workspaces within the program with enough simple explanation to start using it.

Extensive use is made of screen shots to assist the user to understand what he or she is seeing on the screen.
