Ancestry, documents and FTM - Please help!
« on: Wednesday 16 May 18 11:02 BST (UK) »
Hello,
I am wondering if anyone can help me with my dilemma please?!
I currently use ancestry. Co. UK to work on my tree. I have about 2000 people in it, all with multiple census documents, bdm, and some with wills photos, court proceedings, divorce docs etc.
I brought legacy to back up my tree but to my horror I discovered I have to download each individual piece of media from ancestry to my pc and up load to legacy, this is about 10 files*per person !!!
I have heard FTM 2017 will sync the ancestry gedcom file and all the documents attached to each person.
I just wondered if anyone knows if this is the case or if there is a way to down load all documents from ancestry at once rather than individually.
Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated!
Best wishes Emma

I use FTM17 and yes, it does backup all your media items as well as the Gedcom.
Thomas, Davies, Jones, Walters, Daniel in Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion. That should narrow it down a bit!
Vincent: Fressingfield, Suffolk, Stockton & Sunderland.
Murtha/Murtaugh: Dundalk & Sunderland
Ingram: Cairnie by Huntly, Scotland then Abergavenny
Bardouleau: London - in memory of my kind stepmother Annie Rose née Bardouleau who put up with a lot from me.
