Genealogy Software Update

Many of us are affected by Ancestry.com discontinuing support of Family Tree Maker software. Read about Software MacKiev and RootsMagic, some alternatives that will link to Ancestry.


MacKiev is now offering Family Tree Maker and has a new version of Family Tree Maker for those with versions 2014.1 or 3.1 depending on your system. You can find instructions to update here.


And the New England Historic Genealogical Society offers a YouTube video on additional genealogy software programs that include Ancestral Quest, Brother’s Keeper, Heredis, iFamily, Legacy, MacFamilyTree, Reunion, and RootsMagic.
