New Features in Family Tree Maker 2005 * Automatic Web Search Tool -- For the first time ever, Family Tree Maker seamlessly integrates with Ancestry.com, the largest collection of family history records online. Family Tree Maker searches this vast collection of genealogical records for more information on the people in your family tree while you work, and ranks the results to help you identify the individuals who are most likely to be your ancestors. Once results matching your criteria are found, the web search button changes to alert you that web search results are available. * Web Merge Wizard -- Takes the guesswork out of merging and appending data from the web and makes it a snap to incorporate any new genealogy information you find online -- including source information -- into your Family Tree Maker file. * Pedigree View -- Allows you to quickly and easily navigate through your family tree, view between three and seven generations at once, and identify areas that require further research. Or use the side panel to jump to the pedigree trees of anyone in your file. * Web Search Report -- Enables you to compare results found on Ancestry.com with the information you already have for the people in your family tree -- side by side, right in your file. This tool can also be used to mark the results you feel are most relevant, and then filter the results based on quality, type of record or how you've marked them. * Bookmarks -- Makes it simple to identify and tag the individuals you access most frequently. * History -- Automatically tracks the last 30 individuals you've edited, enabling you to view and jump to recently changed people.
