I have never had any luck with merging from one file to another.

Thank you for any help offered.

It always adds the document to the last one. To correct – so far, I have had to remove all marriages since the one found, then enter them again. Is there a way to specify the correct location?

I then went to my desktop where I found the FTM 2009 icon, clicked on it and got an eror message trelling me that the apllication configuration is incorrect. I am operating XP w/o sp2, I have more than enough memory and hard drive space. My computer is a sony pcv rx370ds with Pentium 4 processor. My system seems to meet the requirements listed on p2 of the FTM2009 booklet. I was able to load the sw on my laptop and operate the sw . Any suggestions?

Maker – 2005 – which I have put on my new Dell which is Vista. when I try to do a web search, FTM simply will not access ancestry – and sometimes says may be behind a firewall. when i first started using my FTM 2005 on the new Vista, frequently the web search of Ancestry would work – now it doesn’t ever work. I disabled firewalls and still can’t do a web search – from FTM to Ancestry.

Help – Thanks.

I had the same problem. Go find the latest service pack or patch for FTM 2008. Download, install, and reboot then retry.

Good luck!

Keith

I will not go through each person manually as I would probably be dead before this is completed. ;-)

I would like to see a way to directly connect my FTM tree to peeps in an Ancestry tree and scrape my media items. If it’s a copyright issue (which I doubt would be defensible), then perhaps just those I personally posted.

Thanks for listening. It can be done for sure.

Keith

Thank you,

Keith
