Family Tree Maker 2009

Dick Eastman's blog on genealogy carries a report on the imminent American release of Family Tree Maker 2009, which is reported as being available from August 26th 2008 through Amazon.com - see http://blog.eogn.com:80/eastmans_online_genealogy/2008/08/family-tree-mak.html .

An initial check on Amazon.co.uk has no listing for the product here in the UK, though a user guide entitled The Official Guide to Family Tree Maker 2009 is stated to be available from September. The previous version of FTM (2008) was heavily criticised by users as it had less functionality than its predecessors, being a complete redesign, though updates were hurriedly made available to alleviate some of the concerns. This new version appears to have resolved some of the issues raised.

More news on this front as it comes!
