      Just a short note to let you know that we have plenty of Family Tree
      Maker 2005 in stock now. Family Tree Maker 2005 has turned out to be a
      huge hit with Family Tree Maker users. Many were concerned that the new
      look of the information entry sceens would be hard to get used to
      however the feedback that we are getting is that the vast majority 'like
      it! The new pedigree view has proved to be a very popular addition
      insofar as it provides many new and easier ways to manage and add
      iformation to your FTM file.

      Also very positively received is the new and easy method of exporting
      copies of portions of your family file. It is an easy method that helps
      you to save one branch of your family file to a separate file that you
      may want to share with a relative who is only interested in that one
      branch. It even lets you take out specific individuals that you may not
      want to share info about.

      Getting Started is Fast & Easy Family Tree Maker's Getting Started
      tutorial guides you step-by-step through entering data, searching for
      your ancestors, preserving important family information and stories, and
      creating unique family trees and books to display your legacy.

      New features:

      An Updated Look and Feel: Family View and Toolbar
      Family Tree Maker has been updated and reorganized to simplify the
      overall use of the program, including entering information, moving
      around within your family tree and accessing all of Family Tree Maker's
      rich features and tools.

      Pedigree View
      A side panel makes it easy to view anyone's pedigree through the click
      of a button, while also providing helpful details on a selected
      individual. In addition to giving you a great visual overview of your
      family and making it easy to get around, the Pedigree View will allow
      you to quickly analyze your tree and identify areas in need of research.

      Web Search Report
      With Family Tree Maker's new automatic Web Search running in the
      background, you can instantly view and analyze search results through
      the Web Search report. You can easily compare the information found
      online with the information you already have - side by side! Filter the
      results to show only the ones you're interested in - by their ranking,
      by the type of data (e.g., census record, birth record, etc.) or by a
      status set by you. You can mark a result as something to follow-up on,
      something to ignore or something you've seen and haven't decided upon
      yet. Family Tree Maker provides you with the tools to quickly and easily
      analyze a lot of information to make building your tree a snap!

      New Web Merge Process
      Merging and appending data from the web has never been easier. Now
      Family Tree Maker takes the guesswork out of merging. An easy to use
      wizard guides you through the incorporation of each new record you find.
      You can either accept Family Tree Maker's recommendations and add the
      new data in one step, or you can use the wizard to choose which
      information to add and whether to make the data 'preferred' or
      'alternate' information. None of your existing information will be

      Bookmarks and History
      Now you can quickly jump to the people in your tree that you view most
      frequently by creating bookmarks or viewing your editing history.
      Bookmarks are set by you to identify the individuals you access
      frequently. The History feature automatically tracks the last 30
      individuals you edited, enabling you to jump to recently changed people.

      Helpful Adjustments
      A number of smaller adjustments have been made to Family Tree Maker 2005
      to improve your experience with the program, including an automatic
      notification when program updates are available, a default date display
      that follows the standard genealogical format (dd mmm yyyy), a more
      intuitive toolbar, improvements to the GEDCOM importing process, a menu
      item for compacting the database, and improvements to the process of
      uploading information to a user home page.

      Hundreds of you took advantage of the new pricing on Legacy Family Tree
      software to try it out and see what you thought of it. Feedback has
      been amazing. Comments like "I wish I had tried this years ago"; " It
      does things that I hadn't even dreamed of" ... are indicitive of the
      emails that we received from new users of the program.
