My heritage family tyree builder 8.0
16 February 2016
Reviewer: Ace 66 from United Kingdom

I have been a ftb user for a number of years now I can honestly say I have not really had many problems using either the site or ftb. my big problem was syncing to web site with ftb after I upgraded to windows 10 now the problem is fixed yes it took a while to sort but the support staff never gave up and were only happy when I was happy the problem was fixed they kept me up to date with any fixes to try.
yes I would advise anyone to use this software and the company its very easy and intuitive to use even for first time users . very quick to install and get up and running.

a suggestion to support can you please make the duplicate finder find duplicates and merge them into one for example 80-100% so if a mistake is made where 2 complete branches were added containing the same people merge them all into one branch containing the different names IE if the branches had 2 john smiths married to Jane smith they would merge into one branch containing 1 john smith and 1 Jane smith.

In summary, I would recommend Family Tree Builder (by My Heritage) to a friend.

My Heritage & My Heritage Tree Builder

Many thanks to the support team for information concerning my change of computer. It turned out to be piece of cake for me.

I have now been a user for app. 4 yrs. My Heritage suits me perfect. And due to Smart Matches I have got in contact with Family in New Zealand, Australia, Canada and naturally here in Denmark. I have received valuable information and am saved for many, many hours of work.

In summary, I would recommend Family Tree Builder (by My Heritage) to a friend.

Family Tree Buider is easy to use

I'm using FTB program and I think it's easy and interactive. I only had a little problem to sincronize my family tree with a family site at My Heritage, but it's solved with some e-mails between me and MyHeritage support. Now my family tree is ok.

In summary, I would recommend Family Tree Builder (by My Heritage) to a friend.

Has EXCEL import and export
03 February 2013
Reviewer: Austpark from Australia

191 of 358 people found this review helpful

I obtained FTB as a freebie from of the computer magazines a number of years ago. It started me in Family History, and I have been very happy with the free version. I find the EXCEL import and export feature to be its greatest asset. I have searched as far as I can without trying them, other programs and they do not have this feature.

I have had no problem with the numbers limit. I have over 3000 people in it. I do not publish to the web server as I am online with another company.
It does irritate me that each time I open it, it opens the website.

I do recommend it to others.

In summary, I would recommend Family Tree Builder (by My Heritage) to a friend.

My Heritage Family Tree Builder.
30 June 2011
Reviewer: Don Campbell from Ruidoso, New Mexico (USA)

The other review is absolutely right, in part. If you don't have a lot of family (I believe the free addition will handle up to 250 people) but after that the program does cost.

When I started researching my family I did not have any prior experience in genealogy. When I first started I had enough information that took me back to the late 1700's. Through My Heritage I have been able to trace my family back to approx. 940 AD. I have found an amazing amount of information about my ancestors. I've had more problems getting current family members to cooperate in getting me information than going back into time.

I definitately would recommend My Heritage to my friends. They have some really great features and I have had to use their tech support a few times and each time I have been completely satisfied with their help.

The most amazing thing is that I have been able to locate and contact current family members as well as distant cousins that I have never met before, which has help me piece together my family genealogy.

In summary, I would recommend Family Tree Builder (by My Heritage) to a friend.
