I read this thread and have just ordered it from ancestry so may be back wanting easy instructions soon. Are you on commission?

Bev is it a very common name ??? maybe you will get thousands of matches !!!!


Heather Report 23 Apr 2006 22:54

They are big Val, but full (and not with fivers) Nite Glen, thanks for being my little mate and doing as I bid - you dont have a leather mask by any chance (lol). Bev, email them - I had probs using it and I mailed them and they told me how to re-register or something so that I could access it.

I feel such a plonker! as I've had this familytree maker for ages! and havent bothered to install it untill today!!!! It's fantastic! (slips heather another fiver) Plonka Gerri ~


Heather Report 23 Apr 2006 23:02

Blimey, I might even buy Glen that gimp mask, the money Im making today. Guys,. remember if you do your internet web site with the FTM (which is so simple even I did it) Remember to make sure you click on the bit that says privatise living peeps. Nite nite my mates, thanks all for being such good company - time for a fag and coffee then bed. See you all tomorrow.


Wade Report 24 Apr 2006 00:47

I'm ashamed to say that Ive been using FTM (2005) for some time and have an sub and hadnt used this before. But how to I integrate it with my Ancestry sub ? It just offers me the chance to take out a new subscription or a trial offer. Where do I register the fact that I already have a subscription? Wade


Kate Report 24 Apr 2006 00:58

Hi everyone Yes i have only recently discovered the web search on FTM and it is brilliant.!!!!! Have any of you tried in the 'Tools' Family Statistics and relationship calculator...? Good Luck Kate


Heather Report 24 Apr 2006 08:04

Hi, you can register by clicking on the tab at the top of the program, that says help. I have to say I did that and still couldnt use the facility til I emailed them and they told me how to re register or something. If you havent used that facility I guess you havent put your family home page on the internet either. That is brilliant - click on create family home page - I think its under the Internet tab. You just have to click Next a few times to do it. Remember to privatise living people when you are offered the option. I never thought Id have a website! You just click on the update button when you want to add more info to it. Another facility is on the web search tab under each individual you can click on the right and it can offer you interesting facts about the surname, such as the number of peeps with that name who emigrated to the states and stuff.


Sylvia Report 24 Apr 2006 08:41

I would like to get this prog. Is it easy for idiots as I am useless with computer? I have looked on ancestry and there seems to be a few on offer. FREE FTM- STARTER ED. FTM 2006 @ $21.95. FTM 2006 ADVANCED DVD @ $19.95. Which is the best one to get and how much in real money i.e. £££s? Regards and thanks Sylvia.


Heather Report 24 Apr 2006 08:44

Sylvia, if you trawl through this thread I think Glen has found it on offer for £19 or something including 90 days free ancestry sub. It is easy, I have made a website by clicking the button a few times.


MrsBucketBouquet Report 24 Apr 2006 12:01

Sylvia If I can do can you! easy peasy :-)) Gerri. ps...dont forget to slip Heather a fiver ;-)

Waiting for the post man now. If you submit your G.R. gedcom. to ancestry one world tree it will give you information from any matching trees or references. You can delete the file afterwards if you want to. Frustratingly it only works for direct ancestors and it is the siblings I really want to find out about. I have found three separate branches of my family on there but two were being researched by distant family members from America and one by someone who is researching the history of the Somerset coalfield. My grandmother was a miner's daughter. The research needs taking with a pinch of salt my great grandmother was married to her brother in law but I was able to contact the people who had submitted the data and they helped me with the American side.
