Family Tree Makers Support

Do you want to use your family tree maker for multiple computers? Do you use FTM software? If so, continue reading to learn how to utilize a family tree creator on several computers. This post will walk you through using FTM on multiple computers. A Mac or Windows computer could be a combination operating system.

A well-liked genealogical tool for creating lineage trees is called Family Tree Maker. And how wonderful would it be to use the same family tree on several computers? Isn’t that right?

Make sure the tree on the new computer keeps updating your TreeVault Antenna Tree if you’re using TreeVault Cloud Services to transfer your FTM Source tree.

To move your tree file from one computer to the other, you must first download and install Family Tree Maker 2019 on each. You’ll need a removable storage device to move your files, such as an external hard drive, a thumb or flash drive, or a burnable CD or DVD. It can also be kept in the cloud or shared across a computer network.

Ways to Purchase a Family Pack for Several Computers

The website offers a family pack license for purchase. For example, there are two situations in which purchasing the family pack occurs when you want to add more devices to a license you already have or don’t have a permit for FTM 2019 and wish to purchase all three licenses simultaneously.

  1. To purchase the FTM 2019, go to
  2. Click “Buy Now“.
  3. There are three ways that you can purchase the Family Tree Maker 2019.

Do You Want to Buy a 3-Computer License?

If you want to use Family Tree Maker on more than one computer in your house, you can get a cost-effective Family Pack 3-Computer License for only $20 more than you would pay for a single computer license. For instance, a Family Pack for up to 3 PCs would only cost $89.95 ($69.95 + $20), compared to a single computer download of $69.95.

How it works:

  1. Family Tree Maker may be installed on a maximum of three PCs in your house.
  2. The three PCs could be any mix of Windows and Mac OS.
  3. If you are the only user of your desktop and laptop computers running the same operating system, you do not require a Family Pack. Since you only use one computer at a time, that is covered by a single computer license.
