Getting the FTM 2019 24.0.1 Updater

Steps to get the 24.0.1 updater for FTM 2019:
 

1. Go to the Update Center. It’s open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so you can download the updater whenever it’s convenient.  There are a few ways to get the free 24.0.1 update:

  • Email notifications.  We recently sent out email update notifications to anyone who had already installed and registered FTM 2019, including information about the update and a link to the Update Center, where you can download it for free.
  • Sync weather report.  If you attempt to sync in FTM 2019 you will see a notification in the sync weather report window that includes a link to the Update Center.
  • Check for Updates.  We have turned on update notifications within FTM 2019 that appear when you manually check for updates from the Help menu (Windows) or application menu (Mac).
     

2. Confirm eligibility. On the first screen, the Update Center will confirm that you own a copy of FTM 2019.

     TIP: Make sure to enter the same email address you used to purchase a copy of Family Tree Maker from us.
 

3. Choose download, CD or USB drive. You can get the updater as a download for free, or order a copy shipped to you on a CD or USB drive for an additional charge.  If you've already ordered an FTM 2019 DVD or USB, the 24.0.1 will be included when it ships, and you do not need to add it again here.
 

4. Browse the Gift Collection. From user guides to a plug-in for making DNA charts, gift collection items are absolutely optional though every purchase helps keep our updates free.
 

5. Get personalized download links on screen. After you fill out the on screen forms in the Update Center you’ll get a unique set of download links for Mac and Windows updaters created just for you.

     TIP: The download links will appear on the last screen of the Update Center and will also be sent by email.

     TIP: If the download seems to be going slowly, check back later when fewer users are downloading.
