Your Questions are Welcome on the Use of the Family Tree Maker program.

This is a User Community, those of us who use the Familyi Tree Maker programs.

When asking questions:

What version of Family Tree Maker are you using AND what version of Windows?

What Workspace are your questions about.?

Please do NOT use Short Cuts in terms. Use terms from the program itself. There is NO FTM14. The Help Menu will give you the information you need.

Thank you


I purchased a new computer recently and want to transfer my FTM2014 database to the new box, but I don't have a serial number to type in to install the software. I do have my orginial downloaded file and the update that was also sent out last year, but it won't install without a serial number. I haven't been able to find what the orginial serial number was when I installed it.

I did email Ancestry support and they responded that I only had 30 days after purchase to put another copy on a second computer, but at the time of purchase, about 2 years ago, I had only one computer.

When you transferred your data to a new computer, did you have to buy a new copy of FTM2014? I vaguely remember you talked about it in one of the HOA's, but have not had luck finding that video.

Do you have any suggestions for me? It sounds like I will need to buy a new copy to put on my new computer as that box will become my main machine for genealogy research.

BTW, I appreciate your recent hangouts on FTM. Very nice hints to make our work more efficient. Thank You!!
