Family View gives users the ability to control how they see their family tree and add information all while viewing extended family relationships. TreeSync gives users the ability to easily synchronize their tree with any online Ancestry.com tree, as well as keep their tree up-to-date from anywhere by allowing access from any computer, as well as iPhone or iPad.
Family Tree Maker version 2014 also comes with a free U.S. membership to Ancestry.com, which gives access to more than 9 billion historical records and 175 million historical photos and user submitted stories and 50 million family trees. The Ancestry.com membership seamlessly connects Family Tree Maker users to the largest family history community in the world, and helps find others researching the same ancestors so you can compare notes and progress your research together.
