Family Tree Maker 2017 Introduces FamilySync, Ditches TreeSync
Posted by Diane



Time to Sync Your Family Tree Maker and Ancestry Trees
Important news for Family Tree Maker software users: Software MacKiev, the company that acquired Family Tree Maker from Ancestry.com early last year, will release Family Tree Maker 2017 on March 31.

Previous versions of Family Tree Maker used something called TreeSync to sync your software with your tree on Ancestry.com. Family Tree Maker 2017 will use something else, called FamilySync, to sync your trees. As of March 29, Ancestry will no longer support TreeSync.

If you use Family Tree Maker and don't plan to upgrade to 2017, you should open the software and sync your trees before March 29. You still can use your old Family Tree Maker after that, but your trees will no longer sync.

(Note that Family Tree Maker is not afilliated with Family Tree Magazine, which hosts this blog.)

Upgrading to Family Tree Maker 2017
If you bought Family Tree Maker from Software MacKiev since March 1, 2016, you're eligible to upgrade to 2017 for free. Discounted upgrades are available for some folks who received Family Tree Maker 2014.1 or Mac3.1. Visit the Software MacKiev website and sign up for the company's newsletter for full details.

Sneak Peek at RootsMagic 7 TreeShare
Many of you have been anxiously waiting for RootsMagic software to start syncing with Ancestry trees. RootsMagic posted on its blog earlier this month that RootsMagic 7 will use technology called TreeShare to do the syncing. The new version will also add research hints from Ancestry.com records to its WebHints feature (which also offers hints from FamilySearch, Findmypast and MyHeritage).

The post also shares RootsMagic 7 screenshots and asks for folks to be testers.

Have you switched to RootsMagic? Ready to learn the ins and out of your RootsMagic software? Take our Mastering RootsMagic online course, starting March 27, with RootsMagic expert Diana Smith.

"You still can use your old Family Tree Maker after that, but your trees will no longer sync"
Although you can still use Family Tree Maker after that, its anything tied into treesync that wont work, which includes a lot more then just the sync part. From MacKiev's faq on Family Tree Maker 2017
Q: Is there a detailed list of what will be working in FTM 2017 and will stop working in older editions?
A: Here's the list of the connectivity that will continue to be available on through FTM 2017:
Syncing an FTM tree with an Ancestry tree  
Searching Ancestry’s databases directly from within FTM and merging data into your tree
Ancestry Hints from within FTM (hints still appear on Ancestry Member Trees)                                                  
Tree upload/download 
Some Web Dashboard Information (though the rest is available online in your Ancestry.com account)

This is surely a very good blog, thanks a lot for sharing such nice information here 192.168.1.1 192.168.1.1 192.168.1.1 192.168.1.1

If I read the comment from Jeff correctly, you have to acquire FTM 2017 in order for your FTM to be able to get the little "leaf" to search Ancestry databases directly while working on your own FTM, then to be able to select and merge data into your own tree. Your old FTM will no longer be able to get the "leaf" to search with, whether you have a tree uploaded onto Ancestry or not.
Is this correct?
