Download or CD or USB?

Before you go into the store, we have something we need to make clear. We offer our family tree databases in two convenient formats, downloads and USBs. So, how do they differ?

Download – A download is a digital purchase of the family tree database. It includes complete GEDCOM files that are lineage-linked to all the members of a particular family tree. When you order the download, you get the download instantly. You need only follow the download instructions that come in an email attachment with your receipt email. You can access the instructions here.

Download+ – Download+ is the best of both worlds. You get the immediate digital download but it includes all of the extras available on the USBs.

USB – These are for computers. These are data USB drives. When you purchase a USB copy of the family tree database, you will receive a USB thumb drive which includes the same lineage-linked GEDCOM files included in download as well as some additional Acadian content. It can take up to 4 weeks for shipping.
