Once an entry is updated on the Web Tree, how can I get the same info to my HD version of my Family Tree, without having to re-type all the info. I have never had any luck with merging from one file to another. Thank you for any help offered.

When adding hints that have proven correct, why does the info always go to the last entry? ie - several marriages are known, but the proof is for the first one. 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 have used all Version from the beginning and baught and installed allso Version 16. I have also bought and installed the FTM 2008 /2009 and am satisfied with this new Versions. Since I, however, installed the FTM 2008 I am not able to open any old family files on the old Version 16. What can I do to reopen FTM 16?

I just installed my new FTM 2009 software on my desktop; the setup proceeded well and I got the message you want to start FTM now?" i answered yes and nothing happened. 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?

I have Family Tree 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.

@ Dave K of post 131, 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

How can I pull down all the media items associated with my tree into FTM 2008/2009? 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
