The lack of many posts since November is due to my serious illness. I am recovering and I hope to resume regular posting.
I use software titled Family Tree Maker, which was bought from its creators and is now under new management. They have continued to allow those trees to be synced to Ancestry as well as the LDS site Family Search.
It has not been without problems. As of this writing, I have been unable to upload my current file to Ancestry. I have tried to locate all the sync problems identified on the Ancestry / FTM board but no joy thus far.
If you would like a current GEDCOM, please send me a comment. I’ll produce one and send it to you as soon as I can.
