Ancestors Day by Day

This month I have been using the 'Calendar Report' feature of  Family Tree Maker 2011to visualize who-did-what-when on my tree.

You can select which people you want to include (immediate family, everyone, or a select few) on the report and it will show you who was born, who died, and who was married on each day.

For November I have at least one event for every day of the month except the 21st and 23rd. I guess nobody in my tree likes to participate in life altering events around thanksgiving...on it...yes, before and!

Looking ahead...for December only the 9th is empty.

There is a new version of  Family Tree Maker (2012)available...and 2013 may be coming soon. I got the 2011 version for Christmas in 2010.

Happy searching!


  1. EmT, announced a while ago, that there would be NO FTM2013. FTM2012 just had an update a couple of days ago.

    Good luck,


    1. Hello Russ,

      Thank you for sharing that. I was making an assumption, but hadn't looked into it. In that case I may update to 2012 for a few of the features that aren't a part of 2011.
