Family Tree Maker 2011 -> FTM 2012

Postby ELSIE » Mon Jan 06, 2014 3:00 pm

I am using Family Tree Maker 2011 edition, but have been given (gift) the Family Tree Maker 2012, which has a 3-month subscription to Ancestry.

If I load the 2012 version onto my pc, (to take advantage of the 3 months Ancestry sub.), will my data from 2011 automatically upload, or if not, how do I do this? I don't want to lose it and have to start all over again.

Any advice welcomed. Thanks.

This thread on the ancestry message boards covers this topic and says it happens automatically :

If in any doubt I would ring ancestry to check. ( Even if it didn't happen there are straightforward steps you can follow to import an existing file , accessed from Plan > New tree etc. )

Thank you, Colin.
I should have done what you suggest in the first place, but sometimes, I just can't think of the obvious. You must think I am stupid!
Thanks once again.
