Many of you have already heard the recent news about Ancestry.com stating "we’ve made the tough decision to stop selling Family Tree Maker as of December 31, 2015." (Read more at the end of this post.) This post is for those who aren't on facebook or subscribe to Ancestry's blog. I am presenting several articles and links for you, since I subscribe to a lot of blogs and have many of these people as facebook friends. I am sure some of their information will be very helpful to you.
The notice on the upper right side is actually on my blog, Life From the Roots. It is shown on the home page (bottom right side) and lists my top 10 popular posts as determined by Google. You can see, the post is about a discount from Ancestry and is number 1. Originally, it was posted in April 2013, and I've updated it quite a few times. People are still reading this and getting the discount. I have no affiliation with Ancestry and because of what has happened, I plan on taking down that post on December 31st. You are welcome to see if my information is still valid for the discount. Note: I haven't been a subscriber for about a month, but will probably rejoin in the future.
Six interesting posts from well-known and informative bloggers. If you don't already subscribe to their sites, this might be a good time to do so. They are all free, and these individuals keep us up-to-date on all genealogy matters.

If you are planning on making a change soon, three of the current companies making genealogy software programs are listed below. All have offered nice discounts, but you have to act very fast on ordering the last one, Family Tree Builder.
Legacy Family Tree
Family Tree Builder
