Have seen the ads for the latest update to Family Tree Maker? I received the software a few days ago and have tried out a few of the new features. Installation was simple and created no problems.
The look of the program has been drastically altered. I like the new look, but it does take some time to adjust. Moving between family groups and children is quite easy. The children in each family are listed below the parents and can be accessed there instead of those little tabs to the right on previous versions. The bookmark feature will be a help in locating the people that you use most often.
Not surprisingly, the new Web Search features is just a way to entice users to purchase subscriptions to Ancestry.com. I own a couple of those subscriptions, and find the new search entertaining for now--a major annoyance is the overload of bogus matches that clearly have no relation to the person you are searching.
These are just a few random thoughts after only a couple of days of trying out the program. If I come across any new revelations, you'll be the first to hear the news.
