In Topic: FTM Refugee Hints

Well.  Being a FTM refugee sucks.  My pictures/media did not come over when I opened my FTM file. All of these helps and hints mean nothing, are far too complication to understand so of no use to me...so all I can say is good luck, I should not have jumped to spend the $25 and now my research is at a total standstill.

OK now, I've been using FTM for 30 years, in fact I've never used anything else.


I have no idea what any of these complicated instructions mean.


When I open FTM 2012 directly in RM7 it looks fine, except where are all my media items? I know they are held in a separate FTM file, I think, but how do I move them to RM7?


I need a very simplistic answer.  Should I be exporting to GEDCOM and them to RM7?


I am a frustrated camper, and I can't believe Ancestry doesn't see how this devalues my subscription.
