Family Tree Maker to discontinue physical distribution in Canada
Posted 02 October 2013 --- Updated 07 October 2013
By Rick Roberts

Ancestry has notified us that effective immediately, Family Tree Maker (FTM) is available to Canadians as an online download only. That means that Canadians will no longer be able to purchase physical copies of Family Tree Maker on installation disks, printed FTM Companion Guides or FTM Beyond the Basics books in Canadian retail stores or from

Links for Family Tree Maker and FTM software and upgrades are available in the software section on our website (we draw a small commission from those sales). Canadian and other international transactions will be processed by (downloads only). American transactions will be processed by (downloads and/or physical products)

The new FTM 2014 version has not been released in Canada yet but will be soon. Recently, many Canadian FTM users were confused by emails promoting the release of Family Tree Maker 2014 only to discover that those emails were from (American) -- and that they don't deliver FTM to Canada. Those emails were intended for American FTM users only.

Soon a similar email announcement for FTM 2014 will be sent to Canadians from will advise our readers and customers about the Canadian release via our newsletter as soon as firm date is known.

Family Tree Maker is a superb product, possibly the best in its field. It will be interesting to see if Canadians are willing to overcome a widly-held aversion to downloaded software and continue to support Family Tree Maker as a download.
