I received this as a 'free' genealogy program when I bought my Dell a few years ago. I had some problems with Windows Update recently and had to re-install all my programs, but I still had FTM data that I had saved on an external drive. I thought I'd just use Family Tree Heritage instead of upgrading to FTM12 with all it's problems, BUT I found out that FTH does NOT recognize FTM data. If you are starting out new, FTH is, for lack of a better description, a '1st Grader'. I was not impressed with the screens and therefore didn't go any further into the program. My advice is to check out some of the other postings for other software before putting your information into this one. If you want to switch later, you just might not be able to get your data into a format that others will recognize.
