  1. My wife got me hooked on Family Trees since she has Ancestry subscription. This program linked to the Free Family Tree of the Church of the Latter Day Saints, which has a lot of great information. Program loaded fine and started typing in my name and went from there. Program states you need a serial number from the cd sleeve, which was missing. Went to Family Tree Heritage support and they supplied me with the serial number, which it turns out, if you have the cd, you don’t need the serial number. Lots of fun finding relatives. This program also will print out all sorts of reports so you can visualize your line. (I didn’t know my grandfather was born in Ireland.) You will find that in any ancestry search that you will be paying along the line for information, so be prepared for that. This is not a fault of this software! Have a good time seeing how far back you can go and find out what your relatives did for a living!

  2. I have used Family Tree Maker since its beginning, I bought the last update in 2009 and realized there was really no substance to the updates for the cost. Now 2009 doesn’t work correctly on the “new” Ancestry.com, in addition to its own buggy operation. So I started looking for a replacement. I had downloaded the trial version from the Calico Pie website and was very pleased with its operation. Even the trial version took in my whole combined family tree. I was very pleased with the interface, and since I am not a touch typist I like the fact that when I set focus to type something in the focus stays even if the mouse gets bumped. This was not the case with FTM 2009 and due to hot key interaction caused many problems. All in all my experience with the trial was so rewarding that I bought the program. Once the full version was loaded I explored the links on MyHeritage and found new information that needs to be explored. My thanks to Calico Pie for an excellent application. 5 stars since I have had no problems at all with this software.

  3. This seems like a great genealogy program. I have been using Ancestry.com for several years, and have decided that I wanted to get this on my hard drive so that I can share it with all of my cousins. Disappointed that Ancestry wouldn’t copy the pictures over to Family Historian.

  4. Very disappointing the lack of flexiility and the way it tries to force the software owner to be connected and committed to Ancestary.com – they then take a persons research and hard work as their own.Ancestary.com should pay users to use this software Not the way users purchasing it.

  5. I have been doing genealogical research for at least 20 years during which time I have used several software packages used for that purpose. All are basically a method of creating a genealogy data base. The differences between the software offered by the various companies are primarily in appearance and ease of use. All will create reports of various types. The “eye appeal” of these reports is a big selling point for some of the companies even though all such reports should contain the same basic information.Family Historian meets all the requirements for this type of software and a somewhat attractive interface. I found the Family Historian interface to be similar to the now defunct Master Genealogist and thus somewhat cumbersome.Family Historian does not provide the option to customize the appearance of the interface colors available in other companies. Flexibility in entering some data is also missing.The software, like most similar software, provides links to genealogy websites and sharing information with others researching the same families. Such “sharing” is unreliable because mistakes in one person’s data are copied by others so all are incorrect. There are numerous sites where actual documents, other than the census, can be viewed and often downloaded. FamilySearch.org is one such site and is free to use.As with other types of software Family Historian is a matter of choice. As mentioned, it is simply a tool for creating a specialized database. It didn’t fit my personal preferences.
