Warning this critter is addictive,
This review is from: Family Tree Maker 2011 Deluxe (Software)I have lost weight, lost sleep, and alienated my pets. My electric bill has gone up and I have direct deposit with the book store. A great amount of ink is being used.
The install procedure was a snap. I barely touched the CD to the slot and it was sucked in. Before I could think of what to do next the program was installed up and running. I made the mistake of playing with it before putting in the supplemental disk. I strongly suggest that you restrain yourself from playing with"Family Tree Maker" before looking at the tutorials and directions.
The included subscription to acestery.com pretty much paid for the product. Speaking of ancestery.com, at first it seems simpler to navigate then "Family Tree Maker" until you get the finer points down. Too bad they forgot to tell you about FamilySearch .org on their list of other sites. Having an LDS back ground one day my relatives burnt out a copier with all their lists of relatives.
My wife now has the bug and took the system over. Looks like cold sandwiches and canned soup for the rest of my life. She is getting into the DNA testing and I know more than I wanted about every remote ancestor she has.
