      This was my first time using any type of software to trace my family tree. I was a bit daunted at first at how many features it has so it did take me a while to “learn” about all of the features but after I did, it was so much fun and it actually is very easy to use. I was amazed at how detailed and organized it really is which makes it great for me because I am not the most organized person. I like that I can attach photos to information and how I can actually print out reports. I would recommend this product to anyone that is serious about genealogy.

      This new version of Family Tree Heritage (Platinum 8) has all the features of the earlier version plus some really nice new features including a new interface with several skins you can choose from, the option to convert from English to Spanish or French from a drop down menu, the ability to save your information on a thumb or flash drive, plus a tree icon you click on to search billions of records to find your ancestor information. All of the searches are free and don’t require a monthly or annual subscription. Also, there are several different websites you can select to search from the drop down menu, which makes finding the information you are looking for easy and fast.

      You can also import and export your data to most other genealogy programs. This latest version of Family Tree Heritage delivers everything you would expect from a good genealogy program, for example, it perfectly organizes your scrapbook items which could included your scanned docs, ancestry records, word files, text and pdf files, images, and sound and video files.

      I have 10 full books of genealogy of my family and my husband’s family. I had Family Ties on my old computer and when I bought a new computer I could not transfer it. I wanted a genealogy program like the old one. I did not find one exactly like it – but I do admit I like this new one. I may have to start all over again and make new books! I ordered first Family Tree Heritage and did not like it at all – you took it back and refunded the full amount to me. Thank you. And when I ordered the new one – Family Tree Maker 2011 I knew if I didn’t like it, I could return it, but it is as close as I will get to the old one. The orders always came quickly. Thank you again for such great service.

      This awesome software. It is motivated for the beginning geneologist. The software provides mounds of information on how to research, organize and publish your finished product.

      I just started doing genealogy research about two years ago, and this program has helped in leaps and bounds. I used to use the free software provided by the LDS and it wasn’t bad for a free product. However, this product has so many bells and whistles that it will make your head spin.

      In short, I’m so glad I purchased it.
