    Family Tree Maker 2019

    Family Tree Maker is to get a new upgrade later this summer to issue 2019. They are offering a 50% discount to pre-order so £29.95 with a 1 year free 'Tree Vault Services' which I think means they keep a copy of your tree. I keep mine on Ancestry anyway so not so sure about the Tree Vault idea...

    Forget how many children you have!

    I have found a bit of a conundrum with a 1911 census return in that the family have reported that they had had 6 children and 3 had died. Looking at the image I could see the names of 3 children (all born after 1901) but I remembered that they had had a child listed on the 1901 census! So I...

    No birth registration!

    I have in my tree the Sewell family who had 10 children from 1836 to 1855 but official records only have the last 3. The other seven all have baptism records - so I assume that officially recording births was not always carried out:confused: Peter

    Reading but not seeing?

    Just checking over old census for 1841 and for the first time noticed that 3rd GGF was living at the address 2nd GGF lived at all his life. So he must have moved in with the wife's parents. I really must pay more attention! :2fun: Peter

    Lop sided family trees?

    I might be nit picking with this but if I do a search for a married couple in Family Trees I would expect a search for each person would give the same number BUT (Ancestry) they are not :o When I look at the trees both of the couple are there - so why are the number of trees different - have I...
