Due to +DearMYRTLE still "on the road" and probably recovering from all of those Myrts AmbushCAM, Mondays with Myrt,  the Beginning Genealogy class, and Wacky Wednesday HOA have been cancelled. 

Normal scheduling will resume on Friday, 22 May 2015, with the Mastering Genealogical Proof Study Group. 

The link for that has been posted here, and is in

+Hilary Gadsby​ your comparison provides thoughtful insights about balancing learning and networking. Recorded sessions do provide alternatives for later viewing and should be considered by all conference organizers. Thank you.

Yes, the "citations" will say .com, but the Website itself has dropped the .com.

I learned about this was from the Evidence Explained User Forum.

Overreaction It was probably inevitable the moment the very first headline appeared online, inaccurately accusing Ancestry of handing over DNA data without a court order. That never happened, but t...

Roderick,

You can NOT export to a PDF file with FTM2006 on a Windows 7 computer. Won't work.

You need a PDF Generator, most of them are FREE, and PRINT to that PDF generator.

OR, upgrade to FTM2014.

There are two limitations for importing or opening a Family Tree Maker file in 2009. 1) 2009 does not recognize the Compressed Back Up (FBC) created by Version 16 of Family Tree Maker and earlier This is covered Transfer Old ...

Russ.  The old article you point to now has important links broken.

The genealogy.com page to download the Family Archive Viewer is gone. Note however, if you go to the wayback machine (archive.org), you can still get to what the page was AND you can still download the file. I've done so, and I'd advise anyone who ever may want to help users of the old version of FTM to download it and keep a copy. Of course, there's no way to know how long it will continue to work on future versions of Windows. http://web.archive.org/web/20130311153918/http://www.genealogy.com/abtffiv.html

Also your link to the FTM 2009 Software Update Guide doesn't work. But this too is still available on archive.orghttp://web.archive.org/web/20090414143536/http://www.familytreemaker.com/content/FTM2009/FTM2009_SoftwareUpdateGuide.pdf

Now that we have Collections, I have a question for this community. 

IF Collections allows users to categorize their content as per topics and it allows their followers to choose which content they would like to see and visit, as I understand it:

What if the Content Provider has a Community ?

I can see those who rely on Circles or do not have Communities, that Collections might be very helpful.

Any Thoughts?

Thank you,

Russ

I can see your dilemma.  We don't have a community so for me the path for us is cleaner +Russ Worthington
