Family Tree Maker, usually called FTM, is Australia’s most popular genealogy program. It has enjoyed huge success and is now in its 22nd iteration as FTM 2014. In December 2013 Ancestry.com announced Family Tree Maker for Mac 3 which was released in Australia in March 2014.

The program has developed extensively and since purchased by Ancestry.com in 2004, it has become even tightly integrated with the Ancestry.com database. It has become very internet aware with its use of Bing Maps and the ability to link to internet sites like Trove from within the program as well as using a very convenient web clipping and merging capability.

The program is sold throughout Australia and New Zealand in retail packs that include access to Ancestry.com paid databases.

This book is intended to be the first of a series about Family Tree Maker, and covers the absolute basics that users, with very little computer understanding can get up and running.

The book will take new users through installation, registration, activating an Ancestry.com subscription, followed by an introduction to creating or importing files. The book introduces new users to the eight workspaces within the program with enough simple explanation to start using it.

Extensive use is made of screen shots to assist the user to understand what he or she is seeing on the screen.

So for everyone who is just starting out on Family Tree Maker with FTM 2012, FTM 2014 or FTM for Mac 2 or FTM for Mac 3, this is a book for you!.
