Family Tree Maker User Group

About

The FTM User Group meets to support those who use Family Tree Maker software to organise their genealogical research. The program was owned by Ancestry.com until March 2016 when it was taken over by Software MacKiev.

The group is facilitated by volunteers who are willing to share their knowledge and experiences. Everyone is welcome, whether you are a potential, new or long-term user of FTM software.

Our focus group supports members with two main initiatives.

1. Meetings

These occur four times a year. Currently, these meetings are scheduled in February, May, August and November. After two years of webinar-only meetings, we will be working on a hybrid (face-to-face at the same time as a webinar) version in 2023.

These interactive meetings consist of presentations on techniques, tips, hints and experiences in using the many and varied features of the program. These are discussion-led sessions and there is plenty of time dedicated to questions and answers (Q&A). The focus is on the current version of the software. However, users of older versions are welcomed and encouraged. Every effort is made to answer questions within the context of the version to which the query relates.

2. Online discussion board (see more below "Spokt Hub forum")

Access by invitation only (for security and privacy), members can post questions, seek answers, make suggestions and obtain support. Fellow members can offer answers and suggestions based on their own experiences, or a member can simply read the posts of others. Previous Q&As on various topics can be searched.

You can join by emailing your full name, SAG membership number and expiry date.

 All are welcome to attend our meetings.
