The Journey… The Shares

Family Tree Maker

Posted by bfindarto on October 30, 2008

As my father wants to track all our family member, he asked me to find a good software to do it. Lately, he did the tracking things manually, entered the data manually (using MS. excel), and draw the tree manually (using MS. Visio). And it is hard things to do, because I also involved in “that project”, he he. So I found Family Tree Maker from Anchestry.
