An FTB file is a database file used by MyHeritage Family Tree Builder, a free genealogy application. It contains genealogy data, which may include details about people in a family tree, relationships between relatives, photos, charts, and maps.
FTB files were introduced with the release of version 8 of MyHeritage Family Tree Builder.

ZED files are primarily used by versions 1 - 6 of Family Tree Builder and UZED files are primarily used by version 7 of the software.
