The only way to get your media off Ancestry is to have some kind of SYNC programme.

I have family tree maker 2017 -- and I keep them synced.

that way all my media etc is always in two places.

I am not as happy with FTM 2017 as I was with the previous version. ..

but its ok.

So if you download a GED from Ancestry it is a media less file.

I am paying monthly at the moment.. and want to change.. what I will do..

Is just tell them and if they dont give me discount .. sulk.. :)  no seriously
I will stay on monthly  because even tho it is more in the long run (a lot more I know)  it is convenient for stopping and starting..

Hiya will I have to be a new user ( like creating a new email) or do I just wait until the 28 May until my monthly subscription runs out then try and take up the Dna offer for 12 months at 54.99 with my old email address, but is it possible after 12 month the offer might have gone up
If all that makes sense
Thanks

If you have a monthly sub, you'll probably need to cancel as it usually automatically renews at the end of the month.  once its lapsed or cancelled you should be able to take up the offer of the half price sub (if its still available) without creating a 'new you'. When it finishes in 12 months its likely that particular offer will not be available, however if you cancel at the end of 12 months and then you can check again what is on offer or just take up a monthly sub. I find that when you cancel a sub, there is often another offer pops up before you continue your cancellation, and you may find that happens when you cancel your monthly sub. Don't forget if you don't cancel at the end of any type of sub it does automatically renew, ie at the end of each month or at the end of 12 months.

You could just follow the link and then press the get started button and see where it takes you.  it takes me to a page with all my details and a welcome back screen and a buy now button, but it might show you the offer as an upgrade.

hope that makes sense

My way of looking at   the cost...

Outings generally for me  almost nil
pub visits Nil
meals out very rare
Cinema never
smoking never
alcohol never

ONE great holiday each year /  defo
slightly but not overly spoil my 11 grandchildren and 3 greats... slightly spoil I said.. ha ha

so this boring old ..... lady

saves her cash to spend on Ancestry - which.. she uses 7 days out of 7 

so worth it.

it gives me all the highs and lows of the other mentioned things.. so yes  boring to others but not to me ...

Exactly Xin, when you start looking at it that way, it isn't an expensive hobby. I just checked and a pack of 20 cigarettes costs around 8.74 and a pint of beer is about 3.50.

Don't forget your sub doesn't expire it automatically rolls on to the next month unless you cancel it, they will take another months sub unless you cancel.
