Family Tree Maker Website Feature Can Be Difficult To Use

Dana Huff’s Family History Blog makes an interesting point about using the Family Tree Maker website feature to upload information from the Family Tree Legends software program to the Family History site, and making your own websites with Family Tree Legends:

Family Tree Maker also allows users to create websites, but they are more difficult to maintain, as the user must create a user name and password, upload the information from the program, and upload it again if any changes are made. I have a Family Tree Maker site, but I can’t remember my user name and password, and the e-mail address I had associated with it doesn’t work anymore. I don’t think it is likely that it has hurt any researchers out there not to be able to contact me because of the tree on that site, but it really bothers me that I can’t get in there and put up a redirect to this blog.

As I am working on the article series on Building a Genealogy Blog on , these points are worth serious consideration as you plan your own genealogy blog or site and choose your genealogy software program.
