Which media files import from FTM to RM?

13 December 2015 - 02:24 PM

New problem I need an answer for please! I went ahead and downloaded the full version of RM7, prepared one of my smaller FTM family files for export, and then imported it into RM7. Everything went swimmingly and the media that I had manually added to my FTM file made the trip, but none of the document images - census, marriage & whatnot  - that I had attached to my tree from Ancestry's database seem to have imported. The sources are there, but no images! Yikes!


I have several large trees and I have hundreds, if not thousands, of these type records in my trees. What is the problem? Are these Ancestry's proprietary records and am I not able to somehow get them to transfer? If that is the case, it's a huge problem!


Help! I don't want to abandon RM because of this.

FTM user looking for new program - major question

13 December 2015 - 09:45 AM

As a longtime user of FTM, I'm kind of set in my ways of dealing with information on people in my trees. Besides lots of media and photos, I have typed up a ton of research notes for individuals in my tree. In FTM, the "Notes" section is viewable from the "Person" tab on each individual. I refer often to my research notes for each person and add to it when new info is found. Often I write it in chronological order and sometimes in story form.


I have not downloaded RM yet as I'm looking at all the screen shots for RM and I don't readily see anyplace where all my "Notes" will go. This would be a deal breaker for me. Can someone enlighten me as to what happens to my notes if I import into RM?


Thank you.
