Now, there are no green leaves on any of my names and have no idea how this has benefitted m e! There is no telephone number given for FTM so that I can talk to someone on how to proceed! Could someone please respond on how this version has helped me? I do have a current subscription to Ancestry. Mine did not link automatically. Now I have to figure out how to get them linked without uploading them to Ancestry since they are already there.
I do not have a family tree on Ancestry nor will I ever. I investigated the option and when Ancestry told me that if I put a tree up, then they own the copyright an I forego all my rights to the material -yes, I lose everything I researched, after paying them for the ability to research. We bought FTM , It would never install on my laptop. I spent 4 hours on the phone with someone from Ancestry. The icon still shows up but it goes no where. No one can tell me my hard work belongs to them.
I do a lot of research in libraries, cemeteries, court houses, etc that have nothing to do with Ancestry but I do put that info in my FTM so I can print reports, etc. It will be interesting to see what the new company has in their agreement. Made my new laptop with 8Gb ram and 1Tb hard drive run like a slug; tried de- and re-installing several times over the years.
Same slug result. Laptop works great without it. Funny thing is I bought a Win 7 desktop and upgraded to Win 10 last summer. But if I find a family member that still shows up in the list, I can trace down to the new individuals. My Ancestry tree has less than names. I prefer to choose who to add.
I also go back and forth with having a membership and am currently in a not active membership period. I do my own backups to my external hard drives and memory sticks. You dont understand about syncing! And secondly its free to have a tree on Ancestry , so many misconceptions being banded around! I downloaded it when FTM no longer worked. Hope this helps. With FTM I ended up with duplicates in both my home tree and the one on Ancestry and in some cases it added info to the wrong person.
When RM first made the deal with FTM users they promised they would work on getting it to smoothly integrate with Ancestry, and they seem to have kept that promise. They also have a version that will run on flash drive. I thought FTM was a great program before Ancestry bought it. Ancestry seemed much more interested in just mining the data from FTM sources and synced trees than they ever were in customer service.
