Since posting this I've had the email with details of FTM 2017. Hints from Ancestry AND Family Search is a welcome development, and as a long-term FTM user I'm unlikely to switch programs any time soon. It did allow me to get a free upgrade to FTM 2014.1, while I wait for the latest version.

I've just bought Roots Magic 7, which is US$20.00 if you take up their special offer for current FTM users.

They are teaming up with Ancestry to introduce syncing by mid-April. RM also gives hints from Family Search and My Heritage (subscription needed). Hasn't been released as yet (supposed to be 31/03, but now today, 04/04).

Check Mac Kiev’s ‘release of FTM 2017 update page‘.

Genea-Musings features genealogy research tips and techniques, genealogy news items and commentary, genealogy humor, San Diego genealogy society news, family history research and some family history stories from the keyboard of Randy Seaver (of Chula Vista CA), who thinks that Genealogy Research Is really FUN! When simulating scaling to large numbers of users simultaneously syncing their trees, Ancestry saw a degradation in performance that would affect not only the speed of syncing, but the experience for users of itself and the Ancestry apps..

Sneak Peek at Roots Magic 7 Tree Share Many of you have been anxiously waiting for Roots Magic software to start syncing with Ancestry trees.

If you use Family Tree Maker and don't plan to upgrade to 2017, you should open the software and sync your trees before March 29.

You still can use your old Family Tree Maker after that, but your trees will no longer sync.

The Ancestry search, record merge, and hints functions stop working, and no internet connection is available, for versions before FTM 2017 – SMK details here.
