Two places that you can find the FTM 2010 book are:
1) Ancestry.com store http://store.ancestry.com/BrowseCollection.aspx?PT=Books
2) Amazon. Additionally, Amazon is taking pre-orders for the 2011 FTM book by Tana (i.e., FTM 2011 will be released in several weeks).

You may also want to visit the “Learning Center” section/tab on the main Ancestry.com home page. There are FAQs, Webinars, etc. that may assist you.

Pedersen?

I have tried to obtain it locally through a reputable Book Shop but, they cannot get it for me.

I really would like to purchase the book and if you could either give me information on how or where I may obtain the book or even if you can obtain the book for me – I would purchase same.

I had a duplicate listing of Florida, USA. No matter how I tried to correct it I couldn’t. I changed the name and then went to the drop down and picked Florida, USA that came up, but again I had a duplicate listing. This fix merged the two listings and now I only have one. Thank you.

Thank you for the Family Tree help.

When I have added a place name, I have to IGNORE it when I use it again. Then it will be added as a duplicate. Can’t I just turn the thing off while working in the places FTM ignores?

It is the program, not me, which is creating the duplicate place. As Kevin says, in order to get the drop down list to appear you have to type something. I just tried typing “t” (lower case) and the list of places beginning with “T” (upper case) appeared. I selected the very first one – happened to be Taiwan. I then moved to the next place field and typed “t” again and the drop down list reappeared, now with TWO places called Taiwan at the top. I only typed “t” – I did not type “Taiwan”. FTM created the duplicate.

I created a new fact, typed “Tor” in the place field and clicked on “Torrington…” in the drop-down list. Now I have two places called Torrington, one unresolved. Am I doing something wrong. The only way to get the drop-down list to appear is to start typing.

Over here in England, our second largest city is Birmingham, second only to London – this is not an option in FTM2010, I just have to IGNORE it.
