View Full Version : Export from ancestry
I am trying to export my tree from ancestry.co.uk,
I selected Export and it prepared the file, but when I click on the download GEDCOM icon, it just brings up a list of people, dates and other tecnical bits
How can I save it to my computer so that I can import it to TMG?
Being thick here - what is TMG?
The Master Genealogist (my familytree database thingy)
I think you are having the same problem that Brenmac has encountered. For some reason it will not allow you to download a proper gedcom file directly from Ancestry. I have no idea why this is, whether it is the way your IE is set up (or whatever browser you use). I have contacted Ancestry on Bren's behalf but haven't had a reply yet.
Anyway, download the file and save it to your desktop. Then right click on the file and you should get an option to choose a program with which to open it. Does TMG come up as an option. If so select it and see what happens.
Off to try, be right back..........................
Saved it to the desktop and then used tMG import wizard
Easy when you know how ;)
