Doesn’t work properly, poor customer support I used the 2010 version with no problem.Then I tried to load the 2012 update. Despite many calls and emails to customer support, it would not work. I finally gave up.I purchased a new laptop at Christmas, and decided to start from scratch. I purchased the platinum version 2014. This has installed OK, but will not register which among other things means that I cannot run searches from within the software.I’ve spent 40 minutes on the telephone to “customer” support”, who have told me that this is a “known issue”, but apparently there is no “known solution” to the “known issue” because they have given me two inappropriate “solutions”. Customer support seem to be call centre workers operating from a script with no actual expertise in the softwareI have since emailed with screen grabs of the error message, and of the problem it seems to cause. I also sent details of my laptop operating system,…

Wow! So many facilities available with Family Tree Maker I had been using the Generations program for over 12 years now, and had been very pleased with it, but decided to try Family Tree Maker because of the good reviews. Initially I was a little concerned because I couldn’t get this program to do what my original program could do, and didn’t get much help from the help line, but after some perseverance, I found what I wanted, in particular being able to sort on married names as well as surnames.

I am also impressed with the facilities that had not been available on my original program, in particular the spell checker and much easier way to find a particular person’s name!Once I am happy that I…

A program for those who value the six months’ free subscription to Ancestry I purchased FTM 2014 direct from Ancestry as an existing subscriber.There are three distinct groups of people who would consider buying this product:1. Owners of a previous version who are subscribers to Ancestry and wish to extend their subscriptions for six months at the lowest possible cost.2. Owners of a previous version who are hoping for improvements in this latest version.3. People new to genealogy looking for a program to help them.I belong to the first group. Premium membership of Ancestry normally costs £12.95 per month so this package with six months’ subscription is therefore a very cheap way of extending Ancestry membership.People in the second group will be much less satisfied, for there are tweaks to the program rather than a major overhaul, though there were no problems in setting up the software or integrating it with my existing tree. The main difference in the 2014 version is that one has the option of Family…
