Re: [Genealogy Research Club] Re: WRAGG: I wish I could get hooked.. but I haven't got far..
- Jumping in the conversation here - I have used ancestry.com for a little
over a year now. I actually like the family tree builder as I've been able
to attach records and build on the hints, carefully of course. I got Family
Tree Maker 2010 as they work together well, and am RELATIVELY pleased with
it. It is an improvement over the previous version as it downloads photos
and such along with the tree from ancestry.com.
I've tried lots of other standalone programs but haven't been comfortable
with the interfaces. Honestly, I wish FTM was more like the ancestry.com
interface. With nearly 8000 people in my tree, I've become quite
comfortable working with it.
Just my two cents.
- BTW - regarding printing: if you are already using ancestry.com, you can
use their "Publish" tab at the top of the screen and create printable
documents, not just products they print for you. I made a beautiful history
book for my mother with census pages, ship manifests, photos, and a family
tree, all printed from there.
