Updating family tree maker
First, you will not update FTM from within the app itself; if you try, it will say you have the most current version.
According to Jack Minsky, “The Newsletter went only to those who were signed up for the mailing list to receive updates AND had a registration in our database,” in order to keep their promise about the updates without overloading servers.
If you do find a bug, Mac Kiev has made it easy to report them on their website.
I’d like to explain how to get the update, since at first the process seemed a bit redundant to me, but then I realized why.
I know a lot of people have been waiting for this update.
It seemed to me that the FAQ implied that the updates would come out the same time as the new versions were for sale on their store.Less than a year after Software Mac Kiev acquired the Family Tree Maker (FTM) software from and promised to improve both the Mac and Windows versions with bug fixes and performance improvements, they have fulfilled their commitment and officially released final versions of the updates.People who signed up for the FTM newsletter should be receiving an email from Software Mac Kiev president, Jack Minsky, announcing the release (I received mine last night).Family Tree Maker (FTM) has been through more than a few twists and turns over the last year.
In Dec 2015, Ancestry announced that it would no longer sell or support its popular genealogy program and many thought FTM was done for.He explained that the update will go out very soon.
