 Common Ground
  Lawrence said...
I've been an FTM user for more than a decade—since Version 3-something, I think. I'm looking forward to sharing views, hopes, and dreams about FTM.

I am a competent, amateur genealogist of more than 40 years experience with a rigorous academic background as a scientist as well; one of my 'FTM projects' has been to enhance the documentation capabilities of this intuitive and useful program—not just for academics, but for everyone who wants to do a better job of documenting his or her work.

When I consult with genealogists, I always ask them about their software—and, more often than not, it is FTM, so we start on common ground. I look forward to hearing from other FTM-packing genealogists!
