Follow MacGenealogist and not just for Mac people

I have been following Ben Sayer's blog and website for some time because of his great tips and how–to's for Mac software – in particular, Reunion. But I would like to point out that Ben reviews and demonstrates both PC and Mac genealogical software. He was a beta tester for Family Tree Maker 2012.
His latest blog informs us that Ancestry.com is not going to be coming out with Family Tree Maker 2013 next year. They have announced enhancements brought about by users' comments for both the Mac and PC versions during the upcoming year.

Some of the improvements to look forward to are:
  • Numerous enhancements to TreeSync so syncing your tree to Ancestry.com is faster and more reliable
  • A new Family View Report that displays a person’s ancestors, spouse, and children together (similar to the Family View in the People workspace)
  • A new Undocumented Facts Report that lists people’s facts that have no source documentation
  • The ability to merge info from multiple versions of the same fact
  • New source templates for the 1940 U.S. census and improved support for city directories
  • Dozens of report enhancements including performance improvements and new options in the relationship chart, family group sheet, Individual Report, Notes Report, Data Errors Report, Outline Descendant Report, Media Item Report, photo albums, Media Usage Report, Documented Facts Report, and calendar
Check out Ben Sayer's website at http://genealogytools.com and just browse.
