A collection of historical and genalogical records
Ancestry.com announced in this blog post that they will discontinue their Family Tree Maker software, effective 31st December 2015.
For long term users, this must seem like a slap in the face. So what are the alternatives?
Many former FTM users are turning to Legacy, my desktop genealogy software of choice. However, for those wishing to publish their family trees online, it is not so good if your tree has more than a few hundred entries.
So I use TNG online.
Moving files between the different products is fairly straightforward, using GEDCOMs.
It would appear that Ancestry.com's move is designed to drive traffic to its subscription website reducing the options of family genealogists keeping their trees to themselves.
