Following is the info received from UFT on the 3.0 upgrade and will be in our September newsletter (RUG of Portland, OR). Hope it helps: --------------------- Ultimate Family Tree Deluxe 3.0 became available toward the end of June and is the latest version of UFTree, replacing earlier Deluxe and Platinum versions. (Look for the red banner on the front of the box.) Following are a few of the new features that the program offers, as given on the UFT web site. Displaying and Organizing Information Ancestor Box Chart shows all your ancestors for any given individual. Depending upon how many generations of ancestors you have typed in and displayed, the shape of this tree will look more like a real tree starting with a narrow trunk and developing wider branches as the generations expand upward and outward. Ancestor/Descendant Box Chart displays a person’s ancestors and descendants together on one family tree. Great for gifts —this report provides a broader view of an individual’s family. Heredity Statistics Report allows you to easily analyze your family data, gaining a better understanding of your family's dynamics. Track your family’s medical history, and discover the average number of children per family group, age of parents at children’s births, number of male and female children, age of death, age at first marriage, and much more. User Editable Short Footnotes allows you to customize how you want your short footnotes to print inreports. Use the latest in source citation documentation to correctly cite your research or create your own short form templates. Indented Descendant Report now lets you print the marriage date in addition to the full birth and death dates for each descendant of any given person. Customize Reports – Select which data from the individuals in your project you want printed out on lists and reports. All new clipart images — over 10,000 images, including: borders, fonts, holiday themes, and much more [upgrade only]. Research Tools and Options Spreadsheet-like Data Input lets you rapidly enter a large group of people associated with a single event or source into your database using a spreadsheet-like interface. For example, certain records, such as census pages, contain information on numerous people. This new feature lets you enter all the information from the census document in one place, then the program links all of the people listed in the census document to the census event and automatically updates each individual’s record. Separate Place and Source Libraries allows you to create a project with separate libraries so you don’t have to import a GEDCOM file into an existing project/library. In addition to being able to keep projects totally separate (I.e. if you have one project for your mother’s side of the family and another project with your father’s side of the family), you can import GEDCOM files without fear of bringing misspellings or incorrect source citations into your existing libraries. Import only the information that meets your standards, merging libraries when you merge projects with separate libraries. (Image libraries remain shared across projects.) Ultimate Family Search feature searches the Internet and CD-ROM resources and reports back on exactly where to find historical records about your ancestors. Automatically searches for information on everyone in your project – at the same time! Private Text lets you share your information easily and without the worries of divulging confidential information. With a one-click ability to hide private information about any family member, you can make printouts and export or copy your file for others to use without the concern of distributing personal data. You can also decide to print this information by setting a switch in the software. Importing Family Tree Maker GEDCOM Files is now easier and more accurate than ever. With this new version of Ultimate Family Tree, you can now quickly and accurately import from and export to FTM Version 6, using GEDCOM 5.5. Owners of both products will truly enjoy this new functionality. Global Find and Replace allows you to make changes to database information quickly and easily. Supports all records of a given type, individual groups and last search lists. Price for full version $29.95 – $10 rebate available; As an Upgrade : $19.95. [As per a note from Jon Loring at Mindscape: We wanted to give our loyal users (upgraders) a value added component to reward them for their usage. What is NOT included in the full version is the two-month free subscription to genealogy.com and new clipart. The full and upgrade versions are priced the same after the $10 mail-in rebate on the full version.] Designed for Windows 95/98; supports files from previous versions of ROOTSIII, IV, V, Family Gathering and UFT.
