Re: The Family Tree Program by Broderbund NOT the ancestry Family Tree.

Theresa,

At one point in time, for a very short period, yes, Broderbund did own / develop the Family Tree Maker program. Now, Ancestry.com owns and develops it.

The problem, of that old version, that I am guessing you are referring to, was DOS based, a very old platform for programming. In 2008, the program was re-written so that it could move forward, find developers who could update the program, and bring the program into the 21 century.

There were many changes that took place, from a User Interface stand point.

Do the screens have more information on them, yes. But the Navigation not as difficult. In other words, less mouse clicks to get from one task to another.

Does that make is less user friendly, perhaps, but when you work with the new User Interface, it does become User Friendly.

If you don't like the new version of the Program, that is understandable, just go back to the Version of Family Tree Maker that you are comfortable with.

But, you may be missing out on some of the great new features that are in the new version.
