I've been a long time, devoted, and happy user of Family Tree Legends (FTL) from Pearl Street Software. This post is not about what it can do, but about attempting to ansewer its future. The owner of this product, "Cliff Shaw", has perhaps moved its HQ to MD. This is what I found out at the Colorado's Sect. of States web site by doing a record search.
I also found out at Dick Eastman's site that it went up for sale last March. As far as I know it's still up for sale. I used to get automatic software updates almost monthly, haven't seen any since about then. Anyway, after some digging I found that Clif Shaw has formed another company, which is not a registered company in Colorado state...but shows its address of record their. His new venture is called "ProtectMyPhotos.com". Its almost needless to say that support for FTL has gone down hill, just go read some of the recent forum entries or Google it.
Its too bad, if I had the backing I would buy it in a snap, its the best I have ever used. Perhaps, if luck is with those that do use it, it will be purchased by someone. I wonder...how you might assess how much its worth? hmmmm....anyone?
