Was the advance purchase option for FTM 2014 made available to anyone other than Americans? I do NOT know, all I know is that the $39.00 USD price is still up at Ancestry, I would get the CD if you can, or make sure that you save to CD or some removable device a copy of the downloaded file(s)
Since they have a database of all registered users of FTM, if there is an offer, we should receive email notice.
Did I miss something? They will and have always extended one's subscription the amount of Free time that comes with each new version. Just give them Ancestry (Family Tree Maker) support an call and they will extend your subscription.
