Ancestry Media Sync Issues:- If you are experiencing sync issues between Family Tree Maker and Ancestry, try logging out and back in, syncing smaller portions of your tree, merging duplicate entries, or contacting Ancestry customer support. Additionally, it’s important to back up your family tree data regularly.

How do you fix the Ancestry Media Sync Issue with your Family Tree Maker?

Solution 1.

Suppose you added your media directly to your Ancestry tree on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday. After you synced, it may have caused proxies in your FTM tree for the items.

However, this did not happen when you added media to your FTM tree. This only affected the user-contributed press, unlike the source media, such as census images.

Other Ancestry source images are downloaded through different procedures that Ancestry says are unaffected, so if you have added your media to an Ancestry tree between Thursday & Saturday (causing you to end up with proxies in your FTM for those elements).

Delete those elements from the Ancestry tree. Then, you need to reattach them and sync them.

Solution 2.

If you have missing media in your tree, you may get a media sync error. Please find all the lost media and attach them to the existing person. Once you reattach all the missing media, you should process the sync.
