I wrote earlier this month about purchasing "9 Months of Ancestry for $13.49". This was by purchasing Family Tree Maker Deluxe 16 from "Nothing But Software". I was very pleased with the speed of service of NBS and all that came with the FTM Deluxe 16. Well now Nothing But Software has another special even better - FTM v16 Collector's Edition for $15.49. What is extra great about this deal is you get a ONE YEAR SUBSCRIPTION to Ancestry.com with it.
Now you need to following this link: http://www.nothingbutsoftware.com/Catalog_Type.asp?Product
Code=37961&ai=0 in order to get this special rate.
Take a look at the link to see all the additional items you get with FTM v16 Collector's Edition. Besides your one year subscription to Ancestry.com you all so get GenSmarts. I discovered that even though this version of GenSmarts works with FTM it will also let you GEDCOM from any other program to use it's features. That was a fantastic plus for me. It's not the latest version of GenSmarts its version 188.8.131.52 but it still works great. It was only in May 2007 that version 2 was released so version 1 isn't that old.
Why would you want GenSmarts? Because it will analyze the missing information in your database and recommend where to search for that information. If you would like more information on GenSmarts go to http://www.gensmarts.com/. I've been happy with my purchase - just love to get items cheap and with lots of extras. I might not personally use Family Tree Maker software but it's always great to have it around encase someone shares their database with you in that file format. Some people just don't get the GEDCOM concept.
See ya tomorrow, for tomorrow is always another genealogy day!
