How to Publish a Family Tree Maker Family Home Page

Family Tree Maker Version 8.0 and Later:
Click the View menu and choose Publishing Center. Then, in the Publishing Center, click "Create a Family Home Page." Follow the step-by-step instructions to publish your home page. Add items to your home page from the Publishing Center as well.

Earlier versions of Family Tree Maker:
Click the Internet menu and choose "Publish Family Tree to the Internet." Follow the instructions. Note that on some earlier versions, you must first sign up on the Family Tree Maker website before you can post a home page. To sign up, click the Online button on your Family Tree Maker toolbar, which will bring up your browser and prompt you for the necessary information. This is necessary only on versions before 8.0. Since 8.0, the sign-up page is part of the family home page process.
