I have been using Family TreeMaker software since 1998, and have always found their upgrades and new versions to be easily compatible with previous versions. This so-called "upgrade" is far from that! This program is a horrible memory hog that is missing several of the great features of its predecessors, including several important data reporting options.

In an effort to look more sophisticated, the writers of this software have given its users screens which are overly busy, making the program confusing and difficult to use. I think I may have benefited by some sort of printed manual or guidebook....there may be one available on the CD, but I don't have the patience to wade through it in order to check. My copy of this software is going back to the store!

My advice: Stick with FTM 2006!
