Family Tree Maker 2017 News - March 2017

To all researchers who have Family Tree Maker 2014.1, or FTM Mac 3.1, and earlier - your TreeSync with an Ancestry Member Tree will stop working on Wednesday, 29 March 2017.  If you want to sync your FTM and AMT trees one last time using the FTM version you have, you should do it before Wednesday.

The Family Tree Maker website says:

"After March 29, 2017 Ancestry will shut off the their TreeSync technology and we will together deploy MacKiev's new FamilySync technology over the following two days. FamilySync, which is built into FTM 2017, will allow you to continue syncing with your Ancestry trees, use Ancestry Search and get Ancestry Hints. These functions will no longer work in older FTM editions after March 29th."

The FTM 2017 FAQs are at https://support.mackiev.com/856847-Family-Tree-Maker-2017-FAQ#PRODUCT.

Family Tree Maker 2017 will be released on Friday, 31 March 2017.  If you purchased FTM 2014.1 or Mac 3.1 and installed it, then you will receive a notice to download FTM 2017 for free on 31 March 2017.

If you want to order FTM 2017 or Mac 3.1, you should do it by 29 March for $29.95 at the FTM website - www.familytreemaker.com.   After 29 March 2017, the price will be $39.95 for the program upgrade and $79.95 for a new FTM user.

The FAQ page says:

" If you have not done so already, sign up for our mailing list at www.familytreemaker.com, and you will receive information on how to pre-order Family Tree Maker 2017. "

and:

"To pre-order FTM 2017, US users can click here, in Canada click here, in Europe click here, and in Australia click here."

It is important that you click on the correct link for your region.

After FTM 2017 or Mac 3.1 is installed on your computer, your current FTM data files and media files should work fine.

The new FamilySync feature, which will sync your FTM tree with your Ancestry Member Tree will work in a way similar to how TreeSync worked with FTM 2014.

Extreme Genes Episode 184 Features Dave, Paul, Randy and Tom

Scott Fisher's Extreme Genes radio show and podcast about genealogy and family history is a weekly event.  He has a regular segment every week with David Alan Lambert of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and another regular segment with Tom Perry about preservation of records and media.  Then there are the interviews with persons involved in genealogy and family history in between.


In Episode 184 released over the weekend, Paul Woodbury of Legacy Tree Genealogists and Randy Seaver of Genea-Musings were the interviews.  You can listen to the episode using the "Play the Latest Podcast" segment on the blog post Episode 184 – Why DNA Test Seniors First, and Other DNA Questions / GeneaMusings Blogger Randy Seaver On His Genealogy Go Over.  Scott's blog post also has a transcript of the entire show.

Here is the summary from the post:
Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and AmericanAncestors.org. The guys begin with the story of a man who claims to descend from a King of Wales in the 6th century, and says he is next in line to become the successor of Queen Elizabeth II!  Then, David shares the story about the discovery of a large number of 18th century coffins in Philadelphia. And, yes, there are dead people in them! Hear how this came to happen. Next, David fills you in on back fill in San Francisco? in this case? 19th century ships! In fact, they are under the streets there. Maps are now available to tell you where you might be standing over a ship. Then, Fisher and David talk engagement rings and how they came to be diamond rings? in the 1930s!  David’s Blogger Spotlight this week is on Lorine McGinnis Schulze’s blog OliveTreeGenealogy.blogspot.com. David will tell you about one recent post that David found fascinating.
In the second segment (starts at 10:39), Paul Woodbury of LegacyTree.com talks about commonly asked DNA questions, including ethnicity numbers and why you should test your seniors first. Paul brings his years of insight to this enlightening conversation with Fisher.
Then it’s Randy Seaver (starts at 24:16), the man behind GeneaMusings.com. The well known blogger discusses with Fisher his efforts at a “genealogy go over.” What is it? Where does it come from? What’s the end goal? Randy lends his voice to this increasingly popular method for genealogists to solidify and generally improve their work.
Then, Tom Perry, the Preservation Authority from TMCPlace.com goes way over Fisher’s head (not that that’s hard!). Answering listener questions, Tom explains some of the history of various video formats you may be dealing with.
Well, that was genealogy fun!

The source citation for this record is:

"Massachusetts, Wills and Probate Records, 1635-1991," indexed database with digital images, Ancestry.com (http://www.ancestry.com, Barnstable County, "Vol. 1-3, 1686-1747," Volume 1, pages 41-42, John Young will and inventory records.

In his will, John Young named his six living sons - Henry, John, Joseph, Nathaniel, David and Robert Young, but did not name his three daughters by name (Mary, Abigail and Lydia).  He left everything to his wife during her widowhood, but bequeathed land after her death to his sons.

The inventory has 55 pounds, 13 shillings in personal estate (the value of several items at the top of the list is obscured by a tape on the page), and the value of the real property is 55 pounds.   Some of the items are very difficult to read because of the handwriting which is fairly unique to the clerk, Joseph Lothrop.

John and Abigail (Howland) Young are my 8th great-grandparents.  I am descended from the eldest son, John Young (1649-1718) who married Ruth Cole (1651-1735) in 1671 in Eastham, Mass.

My friend, Marshall, has come up with a way to determine which collections are ADDED, DELETED or UPDATED.  Thanks to Marshall for helping me out here!

Note that there was an increase in the record collection count, but no collection was identified as ADDED.  Some record collections had no additions in records or images, yet were included in the list.  

In order to select a specific collection, go to https://familysearch.org/search/collection/list and use the "Filter by collection name" feature in the upper left-hand corner.

Each one of the collections listed above has a Research Wiki page (use the "Learn more" link).  It would be very useful if the Wiki page for each collection listed the dates for when the collection was added as a new collection and the dates for major updates also.

CVGS Program Meeting on 29 March Features Jeanette Shiel

Wednesday, 29 March 2017, 12 noon To 2 p.m.
CVGS General Meeting
Jeanette Shiel, CG on “Newspapers: Beyond the Vital Records”
Chula Vista Civic Center Branch Library 
(365 F Street, Chula Vista, CA 91910)

There’s more to newspapers than just birth, marriage, and death notices.  Discover newspapers across the country and what secrets they hold about your family!  Garner those often overlooked golden nuggets of your ancestors’ daily lives from gossip, tax notices, business advertisements, etc.  You’ll be surprised just what you can find!  


A Board Certified Genealogist, Jeanette Shiel has been involved in family research for over 15 years.  Jeanette is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG), and the Southern California Chapter (SCCAPG); President of North San Diego County Genealogical Society; life member of Utah Genealogical Association (UGA); and National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, currently serving a nine-year appointment on DAR’s Long Range Planning Commission. 

Jeanette was born and raised in New York State and moved to Southern California in 2004. She continues to trace her ancestors in New England, New Jersey and New York back to the 1600s in colonial America.  One of the most important aspects of research that she likes to explore is placing historical events into the timeline of her ancestors and including the push/pull factors that contribute to what and why her family members did what they did….and utilizing newspapers is a great source of information that builds her ancestors’ life stories. 

This program is FREE for all persons.  There will be a short business meeting after the program, followed by refreshments provided by CVGS members.

Best of the Genea-Blogs - 19 to 25 March 2017

Hundreds of genealogy and family history bloggers write thousands of posts every week about their research, their families, and their interests. I appreciate each one of them and their efforts.


My criteria for "Best of ..." are pretty simple - I pick posts that advance knowledge about genealogy and family history, address current genealogy issues, provide personal family history, are funny or are poignant. I don't list posts destined for daily blog prompts or meme submissions (but I do include summaries of them), or my own posts.


Here are my picks for great reads from the genealogy blogs for this past week:
