I have been using Family Tree Maker (FTM) 2005 for a while and have a few generations of my family outlined in there.

I have started collecting photographs, maps, stories, history, etc – which has lead me to looking at how others can access all this information – and although FTM is good for building the “tree”, it is not good for publishing it.

I have also been playing with Python to look at my families GEDCOM data (as exported from FTM) – just exploring this has revealed things that I had not seen from FTM; EG looking at where the family were byu date – I knew they moved around, but I can also see they left roots and were going back to visit family…

I aim to write posts on family-history…
