Here is a copy of message number 4783 on this forum dated May 19, 2000 from the President of Genealogy.com who owns UFT:
"Dear Ultimate Family Tree customer:
After long and careful deliberation, we've come to the conclusion that it is no longer feasible for us to continue development of Ultimate Family Tree. Coming to the decision to stop the development of a program is never an easy thing to do. It is made more difficult when that program has a long history and devoted customers. However, in keeping with our mission to provide all family history enthusiasts with tools to search their family history, we are putting a greater emphasis on products and services that are accessible online. Concentrating our efforts on developing online genealogy tools allows all computer users access to an incredibly wide range of genealogy products and services.
As a current Ultimate Family Tree customer, we would like to offer you a FREE two-month subscription to www.GenealogyLibrary.com. This online resource will help you continue your search for ancestors by giving you access to over 2,500 online books, databases, and primary resources. GenealogyLibrary.com also contains more than 232,000 images from the 1850 U.S. Census. To access GenealogyLibrary.com, visit http://www.ultimatefamilytree.com/freeglc.htmlhttp://www.ultimatefamilytree.com/freeglc.html and enter the product code from your current Ultimate Family Tree installation CD.
If Ultimate Family Tree meets your current research and publishing needs, you can still use it to build your family tree. We will continue to distribute, sell and provide free technical support for Ultimate Family Tree version 3.0 through the next year. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to providing you with online tools that will help you in your research.
Sincerely, Rob Armstrong CEO, Genealogy.com"
I do not know of any other way to say that UFT is dead!
