The difference between Ancestry and Family Tree Maker

Ancestry and Family Tree Maker

In this article, We will discuss about The Difference Between Ancestry and Family Tree Maker. In Case you need any help you can Contact with our Family Tree Maker Experts and get fix your issue.

The difference between Ancestry and Family Tree Maker lets discusses the following:

  • Website vs. Software
  • Subscribe vs. Purchase.
  • Online vs. Offline
  • Books and Charts – My Canvas vs. Publish
  • Migration maps in Family Tree Maker
  • Sync Differences
  • Unique Features of Family Tree Maker

Website vs. Software

The primary difference between Ancestry and Family Tree Maker is that Ancestry is a website and Family Tree Maker is a software. A website, like Ancestry, is on the Internet, and you use a web browser such as Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge to get to the website.

Family Tree Maker is a software that is installed on your computer’s hard drive. A software is usually on a disc that you put into your computer and install or download from the internet and then install. Other examples of programs you might have are Microsoft Office or Norton Security.

Subscribe vs. Purchase

Ancestry is a website to which you can subscribe. Your Ancestry subscription, like a magazine or cable subscription, is a recurring charge that occurs at a specified interval until cancelled.

Your subscription gives you access to the records on the website and other features such as contacting other members.

Family Tree Maker is a software that you buy, like you would buy a television or a DVD. You do not have to keep paying for Family Tree Maker. You can, however, pay to the support experts to get unlimited help 24×7. Choose to use Family Tree Maker with your Ancestry subscription to get the most use out of the program.

Online vs. Offline

Ancestry is a website, and you need a good internet connection to use it. If you do not have an internet connection, you cannot visit Ancestry or any other website. The trees and pictures you upload to Ancestry are stored on our website.

Family Tree Maker is primarily stored on your computer, so you will be able to use the program without an internet connection. There are features that will be unavailable without the internet, such as synchronizing or hints or Web Search.

But you will be able to add people and other information to Family Tree Maker without an internet connection.

Books and Charts – My Canvas vs. Publish

Ancestry has limited abilities for printing your family tree. You can print up to four generations of the chart you are looking at, a profile page, or a family group sheet. You also have the choice to print the records on Ancestry.

My Canvas will take the information in your tree and generate a book or poster according to the layout you choose which you can then customize.

Family Tree Maker has publishing options, with thirty-seven different charts and reports with a wide range of customization abilities. You can include these charts and reports in a book. Family Tree Maker books are not automatically generated, and so are much more customizable.

Once you have created the book, chart or report you want, you have the choice to print it on your home printer or export your project to a variety of formats you can take to a print shop and have printed professionally.

Sync Differences

There are differences between your tree on Ancestry and your tree in Family Tree Maker when you have a synced tree.

Uniqueness in Family Tree Maker

There are impressive features that are available only in Family Tree Maker: 

Backing up trees 

Your family trees are important, not only do they have your family’s history, but they also are hours of hard work and efforts. And creating regular backups to preserve the fruits of your toils is one of the things you can do only in Family Tree Maker.

Here you can find out more about how to make a backup in Family Tree Maker. Then, if your original tree is damaged or you want to revert to an earlier copy, you can easily restore it from the backup file.

You can restore a tree from a backup. For better prospects, you can choose to have Family Tree Maker back up your tree automatically every time you exit the program. This will make sure you have the latest backup file in case your tree gets damages or lost.

Map creation management 

Ancestry lets you view maps you have created using other software. However, with Family Tree Maker you can create your own maps within the program itself, showing all the events that took place at a certain location and the people associated with each event.

You can create maps by plotting the migration routes of your ancestors, revealing the journey your family has made over land and sea through the ages. To find out more about creating Migration Maps.

Source citations

Family Tree Maker and Ancestry handle source citations differently. Whereas the online tree system limits a single citation to a single person, Family Tree Maker allows a single citation to be link to facts for multiple people.

Furthermore, while you can view a source citation on Ancestry only when it is include in a currently open fact, the Sources tab of Family Tree Maker allow you to view and manage all the source citations in the entire tree in a single workspace.

Cleaning up duplicate facts and sources

There are tools you can use to search for and remove duplicate individuals both on Ancestry and in Family Tree Maker, but duplicate facts, sources, and source citations can be found and merged automatically only in FTM.

Note’s creation  

On Ancestry you can add person notes. In Family Tree Maker you can create a variety of notes: person, research, fact, relationship, media, and source citation. When you upload a tree to Ancestry, only person notes will be include; and they can only be seen by people you have invite to view your online tree.

More export options

If you want to share your family tree with someone or open it in different software, Ancestry.com offers you the possibility to export the whole tree in one GEDCOM format.

With Family Tree Maker, on the other hand, you can export all or just a part of your tree in a choice of FTM and GEDCOM formats. This means you can tailor what you export more closely to the needs of the person you are sharing with.

Exporting a specific branch of your family tree is easy. Go to the People workspace, select the person whose family you want to export, right-click (Control-click on Mac), and choose Export Branch.

How to Compact and Back Up a Linked Tree

It is a promising idea to first compact your tree files on Family Tree Maker and make a full back up along with the media files if you are going to update your copy of Family Tree Maker or going to make any other meaningful change like using a new synching technology like FamilySync® for the first time.

Compacting Your FTM File

  • Click Compact in the window that appears on the screen.
  • Once it is compacted, confirm the compacting by clicking on OK.

Backing up Your FTM File

  • In the Backup the Tree window that appears, check the boxes for Media filesHistorical events. If your tree is linked with Ancestry.com, you will also be able to check Allow restored file to resume syncing.
  • Then click on Backup.
  • Once it is backed up, confirm the backing up by clicking on OK.

Safely Store Your File

Storing your tree files on an external media like external storage device (flash drive, disc, or on another pc) is important. There is always a possibility of your computer’s hard drive crash. You should always protect your family history by storing the copies of your tree outside your computer on a regular basis. 

Tree Vault Cloud Backup

You can also use the latest feature – Tree Vault. The new feature helps you to back up your tree file on the cloud and you can restore the file in any event of mishap. Other options to back up the file is to store it on any cloud storage sever such as Dropbox or other similar service.

Sync your Family Tree

In this blog, we have tried to explain how to sync your family tree maker properly. If you follow this instruction, you will learn to sync your family tree maker 2019 or later version.

Sync your Family Tree Maker 2019

  • compacting

If you are ready to sync your tree, you should compact your tree first (it shortens your file size). A short file size gives you less error than a bigger size file. When you compact your tree, try to compact it several times until it shows reduced by 0%, do remember to check the box that says, “extend analysis”. If there will be any error, it will fix it.

  • Take a Back up

Before you start syncing your tree, you should take a full manual backup. If anything goes wrong with sync or the data you have, you will not lose all your data. You will have back to go back to, and you will not lose any of your information. You should make sure to check the box that says, “including media”.

  • Syncing time

You should try to sync your tree early morning of the next day. If you have started working on your tree and finished doing everything and now you are ready to sync your tree, then you should try to upload your tree to ancestry the next day early morning. Or you should try to upload it late at night. These two are the best time according to us.

  • Way to sync

You should always sync your tree manually. You will have an option to include media. Automatic backup does not cover the media option and this will not save your media. Please remember not to change your tree name or tree file. If you will change and try to sync ancestry will create a different tree on their server on our website and you may get confused later. 

So, this is how you can sync your family tree maker 2019 or later version properly

Family Tree Maker 2019 Review

Family Tree Maker 2019 Review

A Brief Introduction of Family Tree Maker 2019

As we know how genealogy or family tree is important for us. Family Tree Maker 2019 is the latest version of the best genealogy software “Family Tree Maker”. In this post, we tell you the family tree maker 2019 full review. So that you can get good knowledge about family tree maker 2019 software.

It was a short time to come Family Tree Maker 2019. It has arrived and hopes were not the first time after a deceitful first major release of Mackiev.

The latest new feature of family tree maker 2019 is TreeVault. MacKiev’s proprietary online backup tool. It costs £20 a year, but the primary 12 months is included together with your FTM purchase. TreeVault is a new feature for FTM data. You are still syncing your tree with Ancestry and FamilySearch. It only works on one computer today. But you can access your tree on your mobile phone through a free application (Family Tree Maker Connect).

Family Tree Maker Connect

You can view and link the TreeVault subscription on the pass by installing the new Maker Connect application genealogy.

Other features include a Next of Kin notification service and a Historical Weather program. Thankfully, MacKiev hasn’t neglected the remainder of the program. You can store your last 1000 changes in your tree with ftm 2019.

Turn Back Time

FTM 2019 has new features named Turn Back Time. Not only are you able to review recent edits, but you’ll wipe out multiple edits in one go do you have to realize you’ve made an error – albeit you’ve closed and reopened your enter the meantime. And yes, it’s all protected to TreeVault just in case of disaster.

One feature of finally making an appearance is that the ability to edit a person’s profile picture to supply a headshot without affecting the first image. It works well and offers both manual and automatic controls (the latter works perfectly when there’s just one person within the photo). Simple, effective, and long overdue.

Family Tree Maker 2019 profile picture perfection

You can now select a headshot for every ancestor’s profile picture. Family Tree Maker 2019 also introduces a replacement Tree Browser tool. This allows you to urge a summary of all of your data files, including GEDCOM and people stored online, complete with a handy summary of what’s in each and what online services it’s linked to.

FamilySearch integration become improved. It’s now possible to make a replacement tree from a whole FamilySearch branch. Ensuring all relations are automatically linked to FamilySearch. You can now also quickly link people in your tree to their FamilySearch record by clicking Match on the online Search screen when reviewing matches.

Once done, Family Tree Maker can provide record hints from FamilySearch. Although you continue to can’t attach them directly. The trick is to match a private, return to the People screen, review any hints then add them to your online tree. Once done, use the Merge button to feature the facts to your tree.

Fiddly, but almost workable

All these new features are bound up during an interface that’s fundamentally unchanged, making the transition from 2017 to 2019 incredibly easy. Dig deeper, though, and you’ll find subtle improvements: the people index now displays hints next to people’s names, for instance, while a person’s folder tabs now display counters to point what percentage items are enclosed inside all.

Family Tree Maker also expands on two features introduced within the previous version: first, the color-coding feature designed to assist trace lineages now supports up to eight colors per person and allows you to incorporate ancestors’ descendants during a color scheme too. And second, saved filters are now officially smart, which suggests they’ll automatically update to incorporate new people that meet whatever criteria you set as you create edits.

Family Tree Maker Tree Browser

With this new feature, you can view all trees that you made till the current time. We were slightly underwhelmed when MacKiev released Family Tree Maker 2017, but Family Tree Maker 2019 – despite the hefty tag (look for upgrade offers that accompany a £30 discount) – may be a worthy update.

When you mix in new features like improved FamilySearch integration, profile headshots, and therefore the Turn Back Time feature with existing strengths, like Ancestry integration, mapping tools, and publishing features, Family Tree Maker 2019 Review demonstrates its firmly back within the game while challenging its rivals to up their game with their forthcoming new releases.

No problem if you have a laptop and a desktop and would like to take Family Tree Maker on the road with you. You can put your tree on both computers and synchronize them to the same Ancestry tree.

Yes, at the same time. So, you will be just one sync away after you return to your home.

Family Sync & Sync Error Report for FTM 2017 and FTM 2019

In the box, enter your name and email address, select a Time Range option, add a description of the problem, and click the Send Sync Report button. If you are unsure of the period you should choose from the Time Range drop-down list, follow these recommendations:

  • Most Recent: If a sync error occurred during your current or most recent sync.
  • Last 1 HourLast 12 HoursLast 24 Hours: If a sync error occurred during the period of the Last 1 Hour, Last 12 Hours, and Last 24 Hours.
  • All Logs: If you are regularly experiencing sync errors and would like to send a comprehensive report that includes all the sync logs on your computer.

Export Charts, Reports, and Books from Family Tree Maker

Charts and Reports in Family Tree Maker

In this section, we will discuss how to Export Charts Reports, and Books from Family Tree Maker Software. Read the full Guide…

Trouble Export Charts Reports and publications from Family Tree Maker

Charts, reports, and books in Family Tree Maker are great ways to combine information into a very presentable, highly readable format.

However, you sometimes may run into issues either when you generate or export them, especially when they have a lot of data.

There is no set limit within Family Tree Maker for these charts, reports, and book size. You may have other limitations on your computer.

Here we will discuss four items:

  1. Potential Computer Limitations
  2. Chart and Reports
  3. Books
  4. Troubleshooting

1. Potential Computer Limitations

There are factors on any computer that may make publication (charts, reports & books) generation and exportation slow or fail.

For example, Family Tree Maker Software, like all programs on your computer, uses a part of your RAM (Random Access Memory) to function.

When you run programs or background tasks at once, the amount of available RAM diminishes, and cause processes to halt.

In the same spirit, your computer’s processor can only manage so many processes at a time, so if you run multiple programs at once, it can attribute to a logjam in your processor power.

The more RAM on the computer and more the processing power you have available, the better chances a given program must complete the task you have had it involved in.

If you find that you are having trouble with publication items (charts, reports & books) slows or freezes, try to close programs or background tasks and start the process again.

While less of a concern with more modern computers, a low amount of remaining hard drive space can also cause undesirable behavior since it impedes the amount of virtual memory available.

As a rule, you should stop filling a hard drive with information when you reach about 90% capacity.

You can adjust virtual memory on a computer manually. If you have chosen to do this, make sure you are not setting it too low. The best choice is to let your operating system decide what amount is right for you.

2. Charts and Reports

While normally smaller than books, charts and reports in Family Tree Maker Software can still be quite big in size. In more recent versions of the software, the number of generations you can include in these publication types can go up to ninety-nine, which is much, much more than the average user would ever need.

To give a little perspective of this, a 10-generation report of only ancestors (no descendants) would be just over 1020 people. With an average of five people per page, you would end up with about 204 pages.

With that in mind, there are outlines of the format limitations you may run into with the more commonly used export options.

PDF / EMF / RTF

PDF

Charts

200” x 200” in poster layout

Reports

Poster layout not available for reports

These figures are more about the PDF format’s memory limitation than its physical dimensions. As such, these numbers are only approximating.

Depending on the amount of text, number, and size of photos, etc. that you have on the chart/report, your size range may vary greatly. Should you exceed the memory limitations of the PDF format, you will only see a giant, red X across the viewer when trying to open it.

If you meet this, you will need to decrease the amount of information you have in your publication item. This covers in the Troubleshooting section below.

EMF

Charts

2GB in all layouts

Reports

Not available in reports.

RTF

Charts

Not available in charts

Reports

Unlimited size but the programs used to open this format have limitations.

512MB in Microsoft Word

3. Books

Because books simply chart and report combined, the same rules apply in terms of export limitations. The only difference is that you cannot export books in image formats.

Due to the nature of the book function, users tend to make them exceptionally bigger than they normally would an individual chart/report.

Bigger books can put more of a memorable impression on your system and burden your processor more heavily when trying to generate.

4. Troubleshooting

If you have trouble while you try to generate a publication item (charts, reports & books), you can try these things:
  • If your system seems to be slowing down while you generate or export, try to close other programs or background tasks. You can also try from a different computer with more RAM or a fast processor.
  • If your computer or the export choice is running out of memory while you export an item as a PDF, try an EMF or RTF instead.
  • EMFs are typically better for very large charts. Windows users can export to EMF or other image formats.
  • Unfortunately, the EMF options are not available to Mac users. But there are other image formats you can try on that operating system as well.
  • PDF programs have larger memory buffers than others. Switching to a different reader like PrimoPDF(Windows only) can sometimes allow you to view larger PDF files.
  • If your item is still too big to view/export successfully. You may want to consider either splitting the publication or removing irrelevant information.
  • Examples of this would be to use lower resolution photos (if included) or remove the photos altogether.
  • You can even do something like running one publication item for each of your parental lines (maternal side vs. paternal side).
  • Limiting your item to a certain number of ancestors and descendants can also be helpful.
  • Charts in the poster layout allow you to drag the person nodes around the chart area. Where real estate is a factor, this can allow you to reduce the number of inches/pages for the chart manually.
  • All charts have a “spacing option” that will allow you to decrease the distance between the person nodes which may also fix size issues.

Move your FTM Source Tree Between Two Computers

Move your FTM Source Tree Between Two Computers

This article tells you how you can Move your FTM Source Tree Between Two Computers using a USB flash drive. To successfully transfer your tree file from one computer to another, you must have FTM 2019 installed on both computers. You must have a removable storage device (such as a thumb or flash drive, or an external hard drive) to move your file.

Alternatively, you can transfer it through a computer network or cloud storage. The easiest way to transfer a tree from one computer to another, however, is by using a USB flash drive. If you do not have one, it may be worth your time to buy it and continue with the steps below.

Move your FTM Source Tree Between Two Computers :- On the first computer

  • Open FTM 2019 on the computer with your current FTM tree.
  • Make a full backup of your FTM Source tree.
  • Go to “File” and click on “Backup.”
  • If you want a new name to distinguish your file from your original tree, type a new name in the Backup file name.
  • Select one of these backup locations.
  • DVD or flash drive: Select Removable media.
  • In the drop-down list, choose your DVD drive or flash drive.
  • Hard disk: Select the Working directory to save the backup file to the Family Tree Maker folder in your Documents folder.
  • Custom directory and click Change to select a new location for storing the backup on your hard disk.
  • Media files checkbox to include all media items from the tree’s media folder.
  • Historical events checkbox to include historical events you have created or edited for timelines.
  • Select the Web favorite’s checkbox to include all the web addresses that you have added to the Manage Favourites list on the Web Search workspace.
  • Click Backup. You will get a notification saying the tree is back up successfully.
  • Go to the location of the backup file you have created and copy the file to your flash drive.
  • Make a full manual backup of your tree more often. An up-to-date full backup ensures that you will be able to at once restore your tree if something unexpectedly go wrong with your current file.
  • It is also a good habit to regularly store full backups of your trees outside your computer.
  • Unplug your flash drive from the first computer.
