After many exasperating and disappointing weeks of “testing” a small, approximately 2,900 person, FTM 2008 file, I have found and recorded, with monitor images examples, so many serious problems that no one should even use FTM 2008 in its present version even if they bought the proverbial “pig in a poke”.

I started with an FTM v16 produced GEDCOM with about 2900 persons and NO MEDIA. I have proven loss and distortion of data besides all the overhead fat and missing features.

The “proof is in the pudding” at http://familytreemaker.chesebro.info/ftm_2008_problems.shtml

For those continuing to support this failure of a product, I respectfully request your feedback ONLY IF MY ONLINE INFORMATION IS INCORRECT, which if it is, I will immediately correct the error.
