Back in November, MyHeritage announced the release of a brand new version of Family Tree Builder 5.0. I had downloaded the previous version some time ago and after using it a few times had begun to use Legacy as my main genealogy software. The release of the new version got me excited aboout the software again so I decided to upgrade to version 5.0
Here’s how I downloaded Family Tree Builder the first time:
- Go to the My Heritage website: http://www.myheritage.com/family-tree-builder
- Click on the download link
- Choose custom install
- Wait a few minutes..
- Product registration:
First name, last name, gender, email address, password
- Click next
But it wouldn’t let me register since the email address I provided was already being used. Did I have an account with MyHeritage already? I couldn’t remember so I checked my email inbox but alas no, I wasn’t a member. This meant someone else had already used the same email address as me so instead I used my Yahoo email which was annoying cos I didn’t really check emails from that account. How inconvenient!
This stuff was optional:
Birth year, address, city, country, post code, telephone
- Then click finish
Then it asked me if I wanted to upgrade to a premium account I clicked ‘no’ and then it asked to enable automatic publishing for online backup, I clicked, ‘yes.’
So anyone else felt the urge to upgrade or to try out MyHeritage software?
