Family Tree Maker 2017 on DVD - Full Version

Family Tree Maker 2017 on DVD - Full Version

Ref: FTMS2017-FULL

Released September 2017 - This DVD is the 2017 version but customers buying this from My History will be entitled to a free upgrade later in the year to the latest edition of the program. - Whilst stocks last.

This version of Family Tree Maker will allow synchronisation of the tree on your computer with the online trees or vice versa using the new processes designed by Ancestry and Software MacKiev specifically for this 2017 version. Older versions (FTM 2014 and earlier) that relied on an out dated system will no longer sync with Ancestry.
Software MacKiev, the new publishers of the software have worked very hard since taking over the program in early 2016 to make sure the program works seamlessly and is capable of installing on either the Windows or Mac operating system. We will despatch your order using Royal Mail Recorded Delivery (UK Customers) which will require a signature.

Software MacKiev introduces FamilySync
Last year, Ancestry announced that Software MacKiev had acquired Family Tree Maker and that together they would ensure a smooth transition for users. From the beginning, the common goal was to maintain the capability to sync Family Tree Maker trees with online Ancestry Member Trees and Software MacKiev are pleased to announce that they have done just that. Over the past year, the two organisations worked together to co-develop a new syncing technology which Software MacKiev engineers have incorporated into Family Tree Maker 2017. The new technology, which Software MacKiev calls FamilySync, will replace Ancestry's TreeSync®.

Elegant simple colour coding which allows you to make powerful discoveries by allowing up to four colours on a single person in your tree. You can start by colouring all four lines of your entire tree with a single click on a choice of four colour groups for Ancestors. The first colour group is the classic set made famous by Mary Hill.
And then perhaps add a colour for a particular attribute -- such as all those who served in the military - by creating a list in the Index and applying a colour to it. Oh yeah, and then SAVING that list. Testers reported being stunned to discover relationships they couldn't have guessed in their huge trees. Or finding ancestors with similar names were not from the same family after all.
What will you discover?

Colour code
Go find your most faded old photos. The first tool in the FTM 2017 Photo Darkroom series is the Faded Photo Repair Tool. It does just one thing as its name implies, but does it extraordinarily well. It takes faded old black and white photos and makes them look like the day they were first printed. All with just a few clicks of three repair tools of differing intensity.
If you're the kind that like to tinker around a bit drop down the Advanced Settings to sharpen up your photos with a few final adjustments using the sliders. The photo below went from "Before" to "After" with four clicks of the Intensive Repair tool, one click of the Light Repair one and a drag of the sharpness slider. And yes, it really is as easy as that.

Sync Weather Report
Wouldn't it be great if you could know when there was a problem with syncing so you could just stay away for a time and come back when it was safe? That was the simple idea behind the Sync Weather Report built into FTM 2017. Now each time you go to sync, if there's a reason you should maybe think twice, a window pops up to say so.
There are three status possibilities:
RED : The red window appears if the sync system is down, or if syncing is for some reason downright dangerous. This status is actually a kind of "kill switch" and syncing is temporarily disabled.
ORANGE The orange window (below) appears when caution is in order. You can still sync but the Weather Report message system lets us tell you what's up. Whether it's a promotion or problem.
GREEN This is a happy state: No known issues and clear syncing ahead. Actually, the green window only appears if there's a future sync storm coming your way, like a planned maintenance outage.
The Sync Weather Report is part of FamilySync, and should keep you confidently syncing along, knowing you have a built in weatherman to tell you what the weather's like where you sync.
