An FBC extension file is a compressed backup of a Family Tree File (FTM) created with Family Tree Maker by Ancestry.
This is a tool for beginners to create a family tree and map their ancestors.
This software comes with smart matching technology that automatically discovers the historical records of your ancestors and helps users to locate their family members.
This tool uses a setup wizard to add your family members and their details and eventually a family tree is created.
Detailed privacy features allow users to control every aspect of security and privacy.
The FBC file is created as a backup in case the original family tree file is lost or damaged.
Through the FBC file, the family tree can be restored by selecting "File?Restore from backup" within Family Tree Maker.
The above assumes that FBC backup files should not attempt to be opened manually, without the intervention of the Family Tree Maker software.
Family Tree Maker for DOS uses the FBC file extension, while Family Tree Maker for Windows saves backups as FBK files, however Family Tree Maker version 16 or earlier can open FBC files.
