Before you buy a license you should try out Family Book Creator. Visit the download page to get your evaluation version.

This plugin is distributed on a try-before-you-buy basis, which gives you the opportunity to test the Evaluation version for a period of 30 days to make sure it works on your computer and to allow you to preview its many features. To continue using it after the trial period is over, you have to license the product.

You can test the plugin without a license for a limited period of time. The trial limitations are:

  • only the data of seventy families are shown
  • once in a while, instead of the lifespan for an individual, just the text "Free - Trial" is shown in family charts
  • from time to time, the month of an event is replaced with "trial month" in narrative sections
  • every page contains a watermark on the background
  • the button "Save Settings" is not enabled

Once you have convinced yourself of the suitability of Family Book Creator for your purpose, you can buy a license to avoid the limitations mentioned above.

Note: You need to have Family Tree Maker for macOS or Windows installed in order to install and use the plugin!
This plugin works only with 'Family Tree Maker 2010', 'Family Tree Maker 2012', 'Family Tree Maker 2014', 'Family Tree Maker 2014.1', 'Family Tree Maker 2017' or 'Family Tree Maker 2019' on Windows. A version for 'Family Tree Maker 2019' on macOS is available as well.
