Most recent Update for FTMFM?

Most recent Update for FTMFM?

I am currently running version 19.2.3.246. Is there are more current version?

Opened preferences>general in my existing software looking for the "check for updates" button. But there is no such thing.

But...when I click on the help button the "check for updates" is listed, between "backup tree file" and "LDS information".

So if there is an update out there I need to find another avenue.

Hi Grant.

It seems to me you're running Family Tree Maker for Mac (the first version) while Family Tree Maker for Mac 2 is the current release.

Thanks for that Ben. I have actually moved to Reunion 10, but was hoping to use FTMFM to sync to my Ancestry tree with its hints and search capabilities.

But after testing a few techniques on the weekend I think my work flow will be restricted to Reunion 10 and Ancestry, skipping FTM entirely.

Hi Grant.

I'm interested in what you've tried for workflows. I've got that topic on my list of articles (and videos) for my GenealogyTools.com site.

If you don't mind sharing, what did you try, what worked, and what didn't?

Ben:

My apologies for my slow response, I had hoped to run some trials before responding to your question. But my day job has gotten in the way.

Some background:
- only 225 people in my tree so far
- I am running on a Mac and have invested in Reunion 10, FTMFM, and FTM 2012 running on Parallels
- Reunion on my iPad
- Ancestry app on my iPad
- Subscription to Ancestry.ca, including my family tree of 225 people

- I am convinced Reunion 10 is the best fit for me as my master data base
- Reunion on my iPad is very handy when traveling. I recently visited some family grave sites and was able to use Reunion on the spot and update information in the cemetery for later syncing on Reunion 10
- Ancestry for iPad is very useful for reviewing hints, especially Sunday morning coffee in my easy chair

Here is how my workflow might unfold:

1. hint review and acceptance/deny on Ancestry for iPad
2. Sync between Ancestry tree and FTM 2012
3. Copy media and sources from either Ancestry tree or FTM 2012 to Reunion 10. This is the big piece for me to test: Which is the better location for capturing source information the web based tree or the software based tree?

This question of workflow is probably justifies a new thread.

And FTM 2012 just crashed again...

Probably the primary reason I will not use FTM 2012 as my master data base.
