I have been making a family tree for some years on ancestry, I would like to put my work onto my computer. would a free programme be good enough or should I buy one. I have a Family tree creator that is about 10 yrs old and was used on an old computer but not this one, would it be to out of date?

Hello Anne
I would recommend the latest version of Family Tree Maker. I do believe that older versions struggle to run on Windows 10. People that I know also have a subscription to an online search website like ancestry.co.uk.

I will ask two of our most experienced genealogist members and ask them to give me the latest advice.

Thanks Phil
I do have the ancestry subscription but want to end it and keep my work which is why I want to find the best option. I have been on a site that compared different programs and one was offering a free option that appeared to be recommended,.
Ancestry has a video on Family Tree Maker in help, although an email from Phil suggest they no longer support this. Are these programmes only on line as I have not found them at the shops?
