With the release of ver 9.04, Family Trees Super Tool apparently no longer works. What can my coorespondents use to read the files?

FTST2 is compatible with TMG7.

 

Using v9.04, you would need to do a GEDCOM export for correspondents to use.

 

Alternatively, your correspondents could use a program that can import the TMG9 database such as RootsMagic 7 and, eventually, Family Historian 6 and Legacy 8.

I would also recommend either creating a Journal report in TMG V9.04, or creating a set of Web pages to send them using the companion Second Site program which then would be viewable with any web browser.

John,

 

I agree with Michael about the use of Second Site for sharing your work. It produces a much more reader-friendly result than FTST and doesn't require the reader to use any special software.
