New Family Tree Maker

Recommended Posts

Ronald    43

While I was at the Palatine annual conference I was asked questions about the desktop software and its future.  I responded with my experience so far, I have upgraded and registered with MacKiev.  

https://www.mackiev.com/

They are the company that is taking over the future of Family Tree Maker.  So far I have found them to be very reactive when I need to upgrade an older version (2011) of FTM and they provided me with an upgrade to the 2014 version for a very reduced price.  I am now running the software on my laptop and see no problems with the upgrade or interaction with Ancestry.com.  I think I will just stay with FTM, but wanted to post this to get your impressions or experiences so far with the transition to another company.

      Major presentation changes

      08/04/2017

      Major changes are now becoming available through the software we are using.  I am hoping for some more gallery changes and flexibility with our pages construct, but time will tell.   Hope you are all enjoying summer!

      The Spring Slowdown

      04/23/2017

      I think it is a common theme really.  Each year as spring opens and the weather allows a release to the outdoors, the website will see a slowing in information.  That is ok, we really love our gardens as well.  I am also a huge fan of grilling foods.  I am not sure any of that will change in years to come either.   We have also taken a grand step in our field research and spent a week primarily in New Jersey with a few stops in Pennsylvania. It was a grand discovery, and yet, it was overwhelming as well. I have yet to go through all of the information that we uncovered.  And again, we found more holes that need attention.  I jokingly tell my bride that I am "DONE" now that I have linked my American lineage to the initial immigrant from Germany.  It is just a joke, there is always more to do. Thankfully so!   In the coming weeks things will settle and we will once again make some time to get more of our information on line.  Expect a wealth of data surrounding the early Tinsmans in America, maybe in Germany as well.  I will see what I can do.  I will also get more linked information posted for other areas.  Finding so many local resources while we traveled has proven that courthouses and societies are very important places to visit, and even make new friends.   I hope you will find something worth your visit, maybe even something Grand!!!!!
