When I bought Family Tree Maker 2008, it constantly crashed. Telephone and online support representatives had me uninstalling and reinstalling the program, adding various patches. This took me well beyond the time period when I could return it for my money back. The 2009 version has most of the glitches worked out, but is still missing some of the functions of earlier versions. My advice to anyone who wants to try it is to make sure you are prepared to take advantage of the return policy.
I attended the Family History Expo in Mesa, Ariz., in November, and I want to thank you so much for your participation at this event. I had a wonderful two days and learned a lot. I hope that this becomes a yearly event and you continue your support.
I found the article “House Hunting” in the September 2008 issue intriguing. My Web site, Terrace Park Building Survey includes history of every structure, past and present, in Terrace Park, Ohio. Including more than 900 buildings, the site has lists of residents of each site, photographs, census records, land records and deeds. I hope the site can be used as a guide for others looking to preserve their community’s history.
