Yes, but don't have it with me right now. I will have to look when I get home.

Thanks very much for the help,

Rick,

It's easiest for this type of "conversation" to start a new Discussion, as suggested above.

The report you generated below is in Version 2010.

If you look as the list of 3 reports, you will notice that there are Several Genealogy Reports, not just the one you posted.

Have you looked at the Publish Workspace in 2010?

Rick,

Which Genealogy Report are you missing? What is it's name? I think that the only report that was in Version 16 and it NOT in 2010 is the NGS Quarterly report. But, 2010 has a number of reports that Version 16 (and earlier) did not have.

Thanks Russ, I will look again. What I found previously was a different type of report. I have never been able to find exactly the same one that is in 2006, but I will certainly search some more.

Rick,

Most, if not all, versions of Family Tree Maker Genealogy Reports. All reports in version 2010 are in the Publish Workspace.

Greetings,

I am a fan of FamilyTreeMaker2006 specifically because it has the genealogy report. I am not able to find a way to generate this type of report in the newer versions. Any help would be appreciated.

Victor -- Family Tree Maker hasn't come with a printed many for at least 10 Versions, give or take a version.

In the information on this website, I have listed a number of other resources for information and help on the Family Tree Maker program.

That PDF file, on your Installation CD may help, but you can print it and don't have to read it Online.

There is an online tutorial for 2010. The Help menus are useful.

Yes, there is a learning curve, but with a number of versions, where there have been major changes, there has been a learning curve.

If you have a specific problem you want help file, PLEASE start a new Discussion, provide some details and we can help you.

Good luck,

Russ

I bought myself FTM2010 for Christmas. I am upgrading from version 16. Wow, what a big difference. I've only started playing with it but it seems to be a pretty steep learning curve. I will eventually get the hang of it but it just does not seem as easy or as intuitive as V16. My first gripe is it did not come with a manual! The "Getting Started" pdf is a help but I hate reading manuals on-line.
