My copy of FTM 2012 arrived yesterday. I got is all set up, and downloaded my tree from Ancestry. It does take a while. I have over 3000 people in my tree, a lot of pictures. The software downloads this AND most all of the media associated with the Ancestry sources....that's a LOT of census images! Very cool that they are now all downloaded to my computer! So far I have been very impressed. I worked on resolving name places (and making them all consistent). This has gone quite well, and the changes have been uploaded to Ancestry. Changes I have made in Ancestry have seamlessly made their way to FTM. The only other feature I have had time to try is the migration mapping. Very Nice! You can uses your facts which have location information to track your ancestors movement over time. Have an event you don't want to use? Simply de-select it. So my preliminary verdict is: two thumbs up!
