There is a new user interface and family record sheet in 2005. It's easier
to use once you get used to it. I rarely use any of the other functions in
FTM except for the automated reports.

Subject: [LDR] Family Tree Maker question
I've been on "sabbatical" from genealogy for five years. Now that I am
(trying) to get back into it, I am a bit frustrated.
One of the most frustrating things is: I've set everything up on FTM. My
last FTM revision was way back on FTM #7. In the interim my computer is now
XP system and I am on DSL (Yes!). I also have Netscape 7.1 but FTM dosen't
know that, evidently. Every time I try to go from FTM to internet (as
advertised) Netscape 4.0 comes up with dial up and I can't get anywhere.
I figure I need to update FTM anyway. My question is for those who use FTM
why should I buy the Deluxe (2005)? What does it really do for me besides
selling me more names?? One never knows if those names are relevant to ones
research until after the fact.
I'd appreciate input as to which level is worth the purchase. I know 2006
comes out tomorrow I think..haven't found anything on the site to explain
the marvelous features that will be included.
