New Features of Family Tree Maker 2014

You spoke and we listened! Family Tree Maker 2014 includes many new enhancements requested by you! 

Enhanced TreeSync
We made TreeSync more reliable and robust to create a better sync experience. The following family tree data is now stored online:

  • Source Templates
  • Research Notes
  • Fact Notes
  • Media Notes
  • Relationship Notes
  • Relationship Media
  • Media File Names
  • Media Categories

Please note that not all of the data will be viewable in the online tree. Since the data is stored online, it can be included when/if you ever need to restore your tree from the online version.

New Family View
The new Family View presents a fuller and lush view of your tree similar to the family view found on Ancestry.


Enhanced Data Merge
We made it easier to merge all members of a household into your tree and now Family Tree Maker 2014 will merge more information more reliably.
