Hi All,

I have looked in support and the forum, but cannot seem to find the answer to my problem.

I only want to upload my direct line ancestors to Ancestry and not the entire database.

It would be difficult to split these ancestors, media and sources to a database on their own, to upload them. 

Upload a Group or Selected people.

TIA

Chris

The upload right now is the entire database. You can use drag n drop to make a new database with Ancestors only. The drag n drop options will come up and you can select the ancestors of the person.

Thanks Renee.
If you Drag and Drop a person from one database to another, do you know whether it takes all the sources, media etc.
Once again TIA.

Yes it will bring over everything, but the marriage or family facts. In that case you need to also bring over their spouse. 1 generation of descendants with spouses should include them.
