The Book Writing, an essential part, has been taken over by a poor commercially driven facility. Please reinstate the old version for us. As a New Zealander it is once more evident that a USA corporate has grabbed and ruined a wonderful product for its own gain. Ms Condie may have all the techo stuff but is she a long suffering genealogist.

Are we able to put together a book with 33 generations? If not, can you recommend a site able to do this?
Many Thanks,
Jill

Can you tell me any website that will actually help me UNLINKE THIS PIECE OF CRAP!?

Please do not even consider eliminating such a wonderful and easy-to-use program as Ancestry Press. My husband’s families trace back to the 1400′s. Ancestry Press gave me an opportunity to create a Family History Book that is easy to read and share with my children and other family members. As for a genealogical book on our family, that has been prepared NGF in FTM 2006. It is a compilation of volumes of each family and all their generations, some are 17 generations in length. This was printed on my home printer, edited, amended and is being prepared for professional printing and book binding at a quite a hefty cost. I suggest Mr. Tyler look into that for his project. I add that not all family members are interested in genealogy at that level and are much happier with our Ancestry Press book. I might also add that should Mr. Tyler want to take the time, he could create quite an extensive book using Ancestry Press by just adding the primary lineage and can back as far as he would like by adding pages for each of his 11 generations. Ancestry Press is only limited by the imagination of the author. Keep it coming!

However, I am using a MAC and in order to get the pics up I have to back out of Ancestry press each time (every pic) and then the new pic will appear upon restarting.
Any suggestions on what is wrong? It is a painfully slow process to build each page.
Thanks,
Richard

I have over 5,000 names in my genealogy. How many pages would that require? I am only an amateur genealogist but wonder who thought this boon-doggle would work? People have made comments that they have four generations. I have 11. Thank heavens I held on to FTM 16. At least you should have given us an alternative in FTM2008 so we could use the FTM traditional method of making a family book.

If I do not have a tree online, how do I bring names, dates, media into the online tree without retyping everything?

Frustrating. I don’t know how that feature got turned on . . how do you turn it off?

I love it. I learned a few tricks on the webcast a day after I completed the book, which could have made it even better. I renumbering of pages was the toughest part. I pick where I want to insert the n ew pages (ie page 5) and click “new page”. The blank page is then inserted as page 6. I then design page six and don’t move it. I added lots of new pages into various spots where they were wanted, such as new pedigree sheets as page 3 or 4. It worked well that way. The photos came out really sharp in the book and I’m very satisfied. Sue

Where’s the combination tree option?

Thanks.
