    GEDCOM from FTM 2017

    I have found an answer to an old post on this subject, but I am not quite sure I understand. I have FTM 2017 which is synched with Ancestry. I want to copy a tree to Reunion 12. The advice is to create a GEDCOM file using FTM version 3 for Mac and then import the GEDCOM into Reunion. But I am wondering why, or if I really do need to use FTM version 3? In FTM 2017 when I click EXPORT, I have to pick the output format from FTM 2017, FTM 3.1, GEDCOM or GEDCOM for FTM 16. So do I have to export to FTM version 3, and THEN export that as a GEDCOM? Thanks.

    As part of a genealogy group, I regularly receive a gedcom from FTM 17 to import to Reunion. No special formatting--just import, and I have no problems with it.

        Sources, yes. Pictures, do not know, as FTM gedcom doesn't have them, but I doubt seriously, that gedcom supports this.

          Thanks... when I first did this in Reunion 10 I did get pictures in eventually but canít remember how I did it. I certainly didnít import them separately. Iím wondering if this is why the Reunion advice is to use FTM version 3.. I could do a trial with a snipped tree. dont want to do the whole thing as itís too big to check for mistakes.

            Yes, an export from Family Tree Maker 2017 can include the Media items if you choose that option in the GEDCOM export dialogue in Family Tree Maker 2017.

            Yes - they import into Reunion as images linked to the correct people.

                I am trying to do the opposite, but since you're familiar with FTM and I am not, perhaps you can help me. A family member uses FTM but not Reunion. I exported a GEDCOM from Reunion and sent it to him to import into FTM. I included media in my export, but he doesn't know how to find the media files and link them back to each individual in FTM. Not being familiar with FTM, I haven't been able to help him. Any advice?
