What are people saying about Family Tree Heritage Gold

Bryan Darby Unless I've missed something, your page lists resources (Ancestry.com, RootsWeb, WorldVitalRecords.com, Mamma Search etc.) but omits any reference to the costs involved. Should we assume that searches on these websites will be free to FTH8 users or only available to the sites' registered subscribers?

Marilyn Holkham I too would like to know the answer to that question Bryan. I know that rootsweb,World Vital Records are free already. I don't know anything about mamma search, but this would certainly be worth buying only if ancestry were free

Bryan Darby It looks like I've found the answer.
I took a trip over to the Individual Software web site and discovered the following note printed very faintly at the bottom:
'* Family Tree Magazine, February 2003.
Records may require memberships to genealogy Web sites. Free trial subscriptions are included and may require credit card authorization. Genealogy records and Web sites that support genealogy records are subject to change. Details inside.'
However, it is dated 2003. Do you think it'll be free now? Hmm! Unlikely, I think...

Fredrick I currently own Legacy Family Tree and have looked at Family Tree Heritage in the past. At the time, I went with Legacy because a free standard version, extensive descriptions, and demonstrations were available for free.

I was ready to purchase Family Tree Heritage today at a discount until I noticed that too many licensing policies are incompatible with my consumer needs.
Specifically:
1. “Transfer of a license to another owned computer is not allowed.”
2. “This promotion cannot be used to upgrade or extend an existing license.”
3. “Online license activation is required with a hardware footprint, and 1 installation per footprint.”

With hundreds of applications on my computer, I personally can no longer purchase products unless the software manufacturer offers automated Internet based activation and deactivation, an equivalent on-the -fly alternative, such as a licensing portal, or no activation restrictions. Hopefully the manufacturer will consider a more contemporary, flexible and consumer friendly licensing model for future versions.

Do these also allow to look for ancestors in foreign countries, like Germany or Czechoslovakia?

Anthony Myers I am currently a member of Ancestry.com and have about 15 family trees online. I know this will download the data of the various trees however, will this be interactive with Ancestry where I could make changes via my PC and then publish it back to Ancestry to update the online trees (two-way communication)?

Tomasz Lisowski Transfer of the license to another computer not allowed? What if I have to change my PC or have to exchange some components? That's a bit harsh to deny access to your software in such circumstances ...

Fredrick Looking at the terms-of-use and the options to upgrade to version 9, this is probably not a very good deal.

That is, when considering the options, costs and benefits for someone interested in moving to version 9: Purchasing version 8 at $14.99 and the version 9 upgrade at $24.99 would be $39.98. However, this purchase “cannot be used to upgrade or extend an existing license.” The cost of the current version 9 (new) is $39.99 or $0.01 more. Purchasing an older version that should be eligible for upgrade would run roughly $11.05 and up on eBay and $19.99 and up on amazon for version 8 (i.e., at the time of this post and all advertised as new). Conclusions: probably only a good deal for someone that is interested in an old version of the software that understands the purchase cannot be used to upgrade to version 9.

The deal breakers - Too many licensing policies are incompatible with my consumer needs as stated at the time of this post:
1. “Transfer of a license to another owned computer is not allowed.”
2. “This promotion cannot be used to upgrade or extend an existing license.”
3. “Online license activation is required with a hardware footprint, and 1 installation per footprint.”

Clive Richards Reading their website all you are getting is the software to create a family tree and a free trial of the services at ancestry.com (which you will only get if you have not signed up before. You also have to give credit card details for access to records.
This looks otherwise to be decent software but you need to be prepared to spend considerably more money if you are going to research your family tree to some detail. From what I can see membership to ancestry.com/ancestry.co.uk usually comes with a software bundle but I have not used either so cannot comment whether this is better than theirs. It is GEDCOM compatible which means that you can export/import to/from other genealogy software

Individual Software Support Mariusz,

The activation code that is included with Family Tree Heritage allows installations on up to 3 separate computers that you own. You can transfer the license to another owned computer.

If you encounter any problems with the software, please let us know.

Individual Software Support Clive,

You are correct that you are purchasing the Family Tree Heritage product that organizes your family tree information in an organized tree format. This product has been updated many times and is a very popular product.

Importantly, the product allows a FREE access to Family Search that is provided FREE to all courtesy of the Mormon Church. This database has a billion records. On the other hand, Ancestry.com is a separate company that is a pay per service program that requires your credit card to even access the time limited free trial we offer. After the Free Ancestry.com trial you are not required to continue that service if you don’t want it. Many people do find what they offer valuable and continue with them. And yes, Ancestry.com has a Family Tree program, as well. We, of course, believe Family Tree Heritage is best of breed.

If you encounter any other problems, please let us know.

Tomasz Lisowski Still no right to transfer the license to another computer :( The possibility to install on a computer AND a laptop makes this hindrance a bit easier to live with, but it still can be a deal breaker for some people ...

I am just curious ... what's wrong with a license holder being able to deinstall the software and install it again on another computer he owns (uninstallation could invalidate the hardware footprint taken during the installation)?

Or what if a hard drive dies in a laptop and the owner restore the system disk image on a new disk (hardware change!)? What if the license holder would like to upgrade some components of his desktop PC - would that invalidate the hardware footprint?

Jim Buchanan Great. I just bought it and tried to install it on my wife's machine. Everything seemed to get installed until my antimalware program said "Hey, guy. there seems to be a problem" I told it to install it anyway. Might be a mistake to do that but I trusted bits to get great programs so I continued. It said it had finished installing on the lower half of its installer and said it was copying files on the top part. Never did stop. So I ended the installation. It never gave me an icon on the desktop nor did it ask me if I wanted one. So I went to Program Files(x86) and founds the exe file. I ran it and it started up by asking for the code which I inputted. Then it started to ask for other stuff and since it is a surprise for my wife I attempted to shut it down. Finally, I had to restart the computer.
My question - Can I reinstall it? or Do I just let it go and make my own icons?

John Kinsworthy My suggestion would be to pause your anti-program(s) while doing the install. Shouldn't be any risk with this software. Remove the first "install" and try again but with the anti program paused or turned off. "Should" go smooth. Once installed, turn the anti-mal and anti-virus (if separate) back on.

Gridleak "Transfer of a license to another owned computer is not allowed."

This is always a deal breaker for me. If I get another system or upgrade my present one, I refuse to pay for a program I have already paid for once.

I never understood this fine print I see here often. Maybe someone could explain exactly why this rule is insisted upon please? This isn't the only company that requires it.

Paul User I too have been considering doing my family tree. But you can never guarantee a family tree is 100% accurate, right? One indiscretion and the whole thing is made invalid. Put another way, you usually know who your mother is. But you can't always be 100% sure you know who your father is. Somebody has a "bit on the side" and it all goes pear-shaped. It happens. Quite a lot.

She is in a different city from me, but we are one the phone and messenger/email every day about our genealogical and dna research, and we save our findings in the cloud so we can each access and update them. Can her computer (which I did buy for her incidentally) be one of my 3 with this license? Thank you

Metta Zetty What options do we have for transferring the family tree we create (at death) to another family member who owns a license to this software?

As I see it, the primary value in creating a family tree is lies in sharing it with others.

Mr Dave What file formats can be used for importing and exporting data, other than "Family Tree Maker"?
Can multiple pictures of a person be saved in their record?
When information is found on the web, can it be easily imported or does it need to be typed into the program?

I like your fan and pedigree charts, nice layout.

Peter User Under 'The Fine Print' it states: 'Transfer of a license to another owned computer is not allowed.'

Does this mean that if I need to replace my computer, I need to buy a new licence? If yes then that will prevent me from buying.

Colin McAllister Can I suggest the developer adds a few more screenshots to show what the software is capable of? I seached for other images, but the two shown here kept coming up time and time again.

FTHP offers tagging - I'd like to see what that looks like. I like to look at images of my family past and present and enjoy spotting the genetic similarities - yet I can't see a single image of how FTHP handles pictures.How does an "Interactive Research Timeline" work and what does it look like?

Yes, I could download a trail and play around with the features. But I could do that too with Heredis, Legacy Family Tree, Reunion, Brother'sKeeper, Family Historian, etc, etc. Life's far too short to install, trial and uninstall that lot! I'm an old man. Please show me some pictures - while I'm still here :-) - that will convince me to buy this geneoloogy software instead of one of those others. Thanks.
