·       Are you using Family Tree Maker for recording your family tree?

·       Are you thinking of using it?

·       Do you have questions about its features and how it can help you research, organize and share your family history?

Join the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Orlando at an interactive and informal open discussion with Mark Olsen, Family Tree Maker’s Genealogy Community Ambassador about his company’s family tree software program.  Family Tree Maker, now available for both Mac and Windows, was sold and supported by Ancestry until 2016 when it was purchased by Software MacKiev.  Family Tree Maker 2017 is the result of further development of the software with additional features to help users growing and sharing their family trees.

According to their web site, Family Tree Maker makes it easier than ever to discover your family story, preserve your legacy and share your unique heritage. If you’re new to family history, you’ll appreciate how this intuitive program lets you easily grow your family tree with simple navigation, tree-building tools, and integrated Web searching. If you’re already an expert, you can dive into the more advanced features, options for managing data, and a wide variety of charts and reports. The end result is a family history that you and your family will treasure for years to come!

Key product features include a user-friendly interface to quickly and easily build a family tree, update your tree withAncestry using FamilySync, get match suggestions with FamilySearch automatically, view family history timelines and interactive maps, and enhance your tree with a photo repair tool. Family Tree Maker also includes a locations database with more than 3 million place names for consistent data entry, access to online street and satellite maps, a digital version of the Companion Guide and a convenient onscreen Help system.
