Genealogy Do Over (Go Over) Find A Grave - Photo Citations

I recently did a blog post on Genealogy Do Over (Go Over) Find A Grave, and have since been asked about Citations for Photo's from the Find A Grave Website.

Great question, easy answer. The video has the answer, in that the Find A Grave Citation is how I do that.

I think I know why I was asked the question, so I'll answer it now. The Citation is for the FACTS, right? I have the Headstone Photo's on my computer in FTM2017, but I mark them ALL Private, as I do not have permission to use the photos. That does NOT mean I can't have them in my File.

The bottom line answer for Citations on Photos from the Find A Grave Website is that they are Marked Private and will not be in my Ancestry Member Tree.

I will be doing two of three more Blog Posts on my change in dealing with the Find A Grave website. They will include My Memorials, My Cemetery Source Group, and My Photos on a Find A Grave Memorial page.

User Question

Since neither FTM sync (ancestry) or gedcom support media categories, how do I copy my 5000 media files in about 20 categories so that I can copy them to a NEW family file?

Simple, the FTM2017 FamilySync® Does include Media files. IF you hare having an issue with that feature, go to and use the Support Page, even better the LiveChat option

User Question: Multiple Marriages in an Outline Decendant Report (ODR)

A User Question:

How to indicate a second spouse on the Descendants Outline Report?

First, check the Companion Guide in the Help Menu, page 188

Help Menu, Search Tab, select Publish, Relationship Report, Outline Descendant Report.

The bottom line, is that Family Tree Maker does that for you. The indication is the "+" as the same "level" as the Husband (in this case)
