FTM2014 - How I manage AMT Hints within FTM2014


Some people have seen and/or heard my Information Overload, So Many Hints, So Little Time. (just added that ending piece).

With Changes that Ancestry.com has made recently, I had to modify how I work with those hints. I thought I would share how I manage those hints now.

FTM2014 / FTM-3 Clean Up Media Categories after a Merge

After a merge of a part of one Family Tree Maker file, into the file I am working on, I had the expected clean up to do, but found a clean up that I had NOT expected to find.

That is that I had many Media Categories from the other file that had media files in, that are not used in the file I am working on. There is no utility / command to clean up unused Media Categories.

I think I found a work around for that and will demonstrate that in this video.




If you think we need this type of feature, please visit MacKiev.com, then Family Tree Maker and select Suggest A Feature.

FTM2014 / FTM-3 - Citing an Email after merging of a file


Working on a new file, I wanted to merge a portion of my Master file into this new file. Worked as expected, but what I hadn't done in the Master file was to put information in an email into the Source Template format. This video is how I took the existing Source material and created the Source into the Template, then created a Citation and moved that Citation into the Source Template as a new citation.



Please understand that this is my working file with information on a cousin, so the images may not be as clear as you might like, but I tried to talk you though the steps.
