Family Historian software - 20% discount offer

The Family Historian folk at Calico Pie have sent me details of the following offer for anyone who wishes to switch to its programme:

9th December, 2015 - Calico Pie today announced a 20% discount offer for Family Tree Maker users

Following the recent announcement by Ancestry that Family Tree Maker will be discontinued, Calico Pie has today offered a 20% discount off the price of download licences for Family Historian 6, to users of Family Tree Maker. The offer is open until the end of January 2016.

Family Tree Maker users who wish to take advantage of this offer should visit and follow the links. Calico Pie's CEO, Simon Orde, has promised a warm welcome to Family Tree Maker users looking for a new home. "We're getting a lot of enquiries from Family Tree Maker users. We've put up a Frequently Asked Questions page for FTM users. We encourage everyone to download the Family Historian trial and try it out for themselves. If you have questions we encourage you to join the Family Historian User Group website and post them there. All the information and links you need are on the page, or the FAQ page linked to it."

Family Historian is a powerful, desktop genealogy program for Windows. It has frequently come first in group comparison tests of top genealogy programs, including emerging as the group test winner in the last two comparisons tests performed by Which? Computing, the prestigious consumer magazine. It has won a Top Rated Genealogy Software award every year for the last four years from GenSoftReviews. It recently won an award from Your Family Tree magazine in a review that heaped praise on the program, concluding: "The crown for best PC software belongs to Family Historian 6 for 2015!".

Family Historian 6 runs on Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 or Vista.

COMMENT: It's a great programme which I have previously used (and which is still installed on my laptop) - highly recommended. Note that you can download a trial version from the site for consideration.
