My mother in-law has FTM 2006 and it is alot MORE user-friendly than FTM
that I used to have installed on my computer. The 2008 version would not
let me easily add an extra spouse field and extra death fields. Nor, could
I set up the columns that I wanted as to the reasons for the extra spouses.
Back in the 1800 & early 1900's the spouse was more apt to die than to get a
'Divorce' and I found that the multiple re-marriages were impossible to add.
Of course, 'not being able to register it online' and 'get support' or even;
recieve a reply from the 40+ emails that I generated caused a bad taste in
my mouth. I am content to use excell and paper and pencil unitl I locate an
older version to install.

I agree that DOS would be nicer than Windows. My wife has deleted Windows
from her laptop and purchased and installed Linex and she loves it!!!

I think the biggest thing is... if you've used something else and got used
to it, then you may not like the "CHANGE" factor... For you, you might
thing it's the greatest thing since sliced bread! Because you weren't used
to any other program.

I started out with FTM Version 4... upgraded up to 11 and just never
upgraded since, as I heard you couldn't do certain things with the newer
versions. I'm one of these that HATES CHANGE... I'd rather be using DOS,
than Windows... but don't have much choice it seems.
