In Topic: Which media files import from FTM to RM?

14 December 2015 - 06:56 AM

Thanks, Jerry! I checked and the files are apparently grabbed from my FTM database. Will have to look into how to copy the media files from FTM to My Documents so they will always be accessible to any other program.

Thank you, Jerry. So when I am looking at the media gallery in RM, it is not actually stored in RM. Is it likely still located in my FTM media file and is this where RM follows the string to show the image?

 

This could get complicated if my FTM program goes kaput, and the files are inaccessible. I'm thinking I need to save my entire media file elsewhere on my hard drive instead of in FTM (if that is even possible). I presume the photos & items I've attached from my own mementoes, are accessed by RM in the folder they reside in on my hard drive?

 

Another question, the media gallery items - census records etc that originated with Ancestry - are indeed in the media gallery, but not linked to the individuals they belong to as they were in FTM. How do I get the media items linked to the person they belong to in RM? I have thousands of people in my family files!

Thank goodness. You are right. I looked at the media gallery and the thumbnails are there. I guess the green checkmark doesn't light up on the person media link for it always? Thanks for the help - I thought this might be a disaster!

Thank you all for the replies! That helps tremendously. I did view the video and saw how to get to the notes.
