GSP Software Family Tree Maker 2008 Platinum Edition

- Too pricey for a casual user
When you have exhausted the usefulness of pen, paper or traditional software, Family Tree Maker 2008 Platinum Edition is a specialist package that's the perfect solution for keeping track of your ancestors. It's ideal for genealogy buffs, but a bit too complex, not to mention expensive, if you just want to keep track of your immediate family.
Price$ 136.26 (AUD)
With clairvoyants who say you were a great knight in the past, the interest in tracing your roots would be a lot more fascinating. Where once you would have had to store all the information, documents and photos in unwieldy spreadsheets or documents at best, or shoeboxes in the garage at worst, now software titles such as Family Tree Maker 2008 Platinum Edition provide you with a simple way to store and track all that precious data.
Family Tree Maker 2008 Platinum Edition is the latest addition to this range of best selling family-history software packages. It gives you an easy way of storing all the family history information in a logical, electronic, editable tree and links are given to a three-month trial subscription to Ancestry, so you can look up facts on your family's past.
This version of Family Tree Maker has a fresh, intuitive interface, as well as a host of new features. The Family Tree Maker 2008 Platinum Edition now recognises the importance of the Internet in tracking down your past, and the Web clipper allows you to merge online data into your family tree.
There are also timelines, which can highlight important personal, family or even historical events that occurred during your ancestors' lives. As well as locating when things happened, new interactive maps and lists allow you to show where events happened, and to associate people and events with particular places.
As you research your family history, you will probably find a whole host of photos and potentially other media files, so Family Tree Maker 2008 Platinum Edition also has the facility to attach these files to different people in your family, and to use them in charts or reports.
Once you have completed your tree, or a branch of your tree, you can create charts and tables to display all the information, and using Family Tree Maker 2008 Platinum Edition you can print these out and share them with the rest of your family.
