With the BBC’s exploration of celeb family history Who Do You Think You Are? due to begin again in July, Avanquest has announced the latest version of its genealogy software, Family Tree Maker Deluxe v4. It’s the latest way to discover that, rather than being a direct descendant of Shakespeare, your oldest known ancestor was a pig farmer called Cornelius.

Designed to work with Ancestry.co.uk, the new package lets you produce slideshows, create and swap family books, upload images and share other information such as birthdays and anniversaries. Users can get the first three months free on a trial period (which would usuallly cost £32) and will be able to access a staggering 865 records to gain an insight into their past.

For more details, go to the Avanquest Software Publishing site.

  • SoftCity.com has a review of Family Tree Maker on it for any who are interested in seeing the software in action. I placed it as a link in my name (to avoid looking spammy =) Since I tested the app I think it’s worth mentioning that if you are looking into using it, you should consider getting an Ancestry account. The software really takes advantage of Ancestry by offering you a “Merge” button that makes noting the things you discover a snap.
