Hello, I have just decided to upload my Ancestry tree of 5100 people, to the above programme, which I have had for over a year.
I installed and registered the software, read what I could and loaded the gedcom.
HORROR of HORRORS! I got error reports concerning date formats which were not compatible. over 500 of them.
I tried amending each individually, to conform and gave up. Tried to find answers in Help, then I went on the phone to Ancestry/ FTM Support, and it was suggested that I 'Tick every box and that will enable the entries to be accepted; 'as is', This did not work. I have tried lots of different combinations, some of which meant re- loading the gedcom.
Is there some way to by-pass this ridicuously fussy software obstruction.
I also have a Family Historian Programme, and it is brilliantly programmed, with a simple option to integrate all Minor format differences and validate. (one key).
Please help if you can, I am tearing my hair out. Oh dear, it is worse than I thought, I have been bald for over ten years. Regards Brian
