We’re excited to invite you to join us for one of our in-person events with Duff Wilson, Executive Director, and Mark Olsen, Family Tree Maker Ambassador. We will be showing our new Family Tree Maker 2024 edition. The event will include two sessions with a 20-minute break in between, and time at the end for questions and answers.

The Family Tree Maker team has been listening to you—our customers—and working hard to create a compelling major new edition. We will be showcasing all the new features and capabilities live at this event. Attendance is free, and we hope to see you there.

Session 1: Introducing FTM 2024 and Reminding Our Users of What Family Tree Maker Already Does So Well
• A quick review of the current Family Tree Maker edition.
• Family Tree Maker is already an amazing program with many underused features.
• Connect! A completely new workspace and new Relative Hint™ feature that makes it easier than ever to share your tree and collaborate with your family.
• Easy on the Eyes™: a revolutionary way of enlarging parts of the screen right when you need it. An answer and relief for those of us with tired old eyes.
• Hyphenated dual surnames support following the Hispanic tradition.
• Improved support for managing and reporting relationships.
• Tools for cleaning up orphaned items (media, sources, and citations).
• And more…

Session 2: A Deep Dive with Family Tree Maker Connect and AlbumWALK
