read only if you want FAMILY TREE MAKER
- BlankWell, well well, with all the trouble I've been having since May trying to get Family Tree Maker, I received this information today about Version 8 that was released this week in the USA and will be available end of Oct in Australia( So they claim!!) so lets say beginning of Nov.
There are 3 versions but I am only going to deal in the smaller one, ie the one with 24 CD ROMs and not the 35 pack. I am not sure of the price but would think it would still be around $120 plus post. (DON'T HOLD ME TO PRICE UNTIL I KNOW OFFICIALLY AS THE DOLLAR IS BAD) Anyway. I have put in an order for 25 so if you want to be the first people in Australia to get version 8 then email me directly and I will compile a list of first comes.
The distributers expect a busy time for Christmas with all their software, so told me to order now. I am listing below the major upgrades for 8 which also include the brilliant upgrade in 7.5 of the abilitiy to move boxes in charts.
Now to you people already with Upgrades, I am trying this new firm to see if they can get me a better deal, otherwise you need to order directly from FAMILY TREE MAKER through the credit card. Visit their web page and read it all
NOW BE CAREFUL! ON TOP OF THAT PRICE COMES POSTAGE. SO AN AMERICAN PRODUCT AT $50 WOULD COST ABOUT $90 AND THE POSTAGE WOULD BE ANOTHER $50 OR MORE AS THEY ARE HEAVY BOXES. I GOT CAUGHT LAST TIME. FOUND IT WAS CHEAPER TO BUY IT HERE IN AUSSIE THAN IN USA.
Anyway, if you have recently got a FAMILY TREE MAKER, Especially those people who have waited so long just to get the 7 and 7.5 you should be able to get this for FREE (ie the Upgrade) Phone USA or Fax or email and give your details.
