FAMILY TREE MAKER News - Holiday Edition
As you settle in for some holiday cheer, here's our last news for 2016.

NEED AN EXCUSE TO UPGRADE?
If you've been trying hard to resist upgrading to the new MacKiev edition, well quick, cover your eyes, close this email or just jump to the next article, because we are about to share three potentially irresistible reasons to make your move:

• You will be able to continue syncing into 2017 and beyond
• You will get a copy of a new edition coming in 2017 — for FREE

So if you haven't upgraded yet from your older Ancestry edition of Family Tree Maker (FTM 2012 or Mac 2 and older), and you've read this far, no more excuses. See “How to Get a Copy of FTM” below to learn more.

YES, YOU CAN TAKE IT WITH YOU
Here's the situation. You're upgrading to our new edition of Family Tree Maker and you have your tree still linked to your old edition. Well there's one thing you should NOT do — and that's to break that link and re‐download your tree. Because now you can take your link with you. When you open your tree in our edition, the link will move (somewhat magically if you ask me) right along with the tree. No need to break links or re‐download. It just works.

WILL SYNC STILL WORK ON NEW YEARS DAY?
Relax. TreeSync® won't stop working at the stroke of midnight on New Years Eve. It will still be retired at some point in the not too distant future, but before that happens, new syncing technology will be available to replace it. And that means syncing as we know it for FTM is going to live on into 2017 and beyond. So stop worrying about what happens at the end of the year. As long as you've purchased a MacKiev edition, syncing, search, and Ancestry's shaky leaf hints are all here to stay.

THE DOCTOR IS IN, MORE OFTEN

If you're an early bird in the US, you'll be pleased to know that we've added three more morning hours to our live chat support service, now open from 6am‐6pm, 7 days a week. We still offer email support and you'll find hundreds of useful articles in our Support Center. But when your research can't wait, there's nothing like a live agent to walk you through the steps. See “Getting Technical Support”, below.
Here's hoping you have a great holiday time with family and friends, and I can hardly wait to share what's coming in the new year. But that will just have to wait for the next edition of Family Tree Maker News.
Stay tuned!
