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!
