FTM and Ancestry!!!!!! GRRRR!!!!
« on: Friday 23 October 20 23:50 BST (UK) »
Finally...... I have time to myself and get onto my big screen computer (versus my phone) and lo and behold when I use a FTM updater and An...try it, goes apeshit! Sorry for the French!!

The FTM, when I am trying to merge flashes up that I do not have membership to An...try....and I have World Membership! 
 It did work once and then spat the dummy again.
An...try search asks me to type in the country EVERY time I'm on my tree searching. It always reverts to All Collections, inevitably the Americas.
Do they not know the world does not revolve ALL around THEM?
GRRR!
Just a rant.

Hard luck.  I don't pay a subscription to any site but I have uploaded small branches to more than one site.

I don't usually take notice when emails arrive to request I confirm a "match".

However, one site has changed tactics; they're very humble and asked would I be so kind to another researcher and confirm his/her ancestor (single not plural) is a match.

It was a definite match to a sibling of my ancestor and I stupidly acknowledged the fact, whereupon a bevvy of other names immediately attached themselves to MY Tree.  They're attached like limpets as I can't detatch any of them, not even the original match, which I find extremely irritating.

Ancestry is American software from an American company; the majority of their subscribers are American!

Yes KGarred,
I realise that but when I'm in the midst of research I get a bit blinkered!
Until the latest update I could go my merry way and not have to stop to reset again and again!
Just a rant, as I said.
Thanx for listening.
Oh and as an Aussie I'm also not yet able to follow the new Trove site easily and have had to ask for help.
Bloody changes!
