Thank you for your very informative workshops on Saturday. I would like to know if I can copy my extensive ancestry.com research to FamilySearch? If so, how?
We understand that you would like to transfer your Ancestry pedigree into Family Tree.
Also the chance for duplication because we have common ancestors is significant. Therefore we do not allow direct uploading to our Family Tree.
However, you can upload a GEDCOM file into our Genealogies file and then compare that file to Family Tree.
Go to Ancestry Help and follow the instructions for Downloading your tree from Ancestry in the GEDCOM format.
Once you have that GEDCOM file and are ready to upload the GEDCOM please follow the instructions in https://www.familysearch.org/help/helpcenter/article/how-do-i-upload-information-to-family-tree
Once it is up loaded to Genealogies and you are ready to compare your tree to our Family Tree then follow the instructions in https://www.familysearch.org/help/helpcenter/article/how-do-i-copy-information-from-my-gedcom-file-into-family-tree
If you need assistance in performing this task then go to Help and lick on Contact Us for our phone number and hours of operation and give us a call.
Thank you for your comment regarding transferring information from Ancestry.com to FamilySearch. The following article describes how you can connect your ancestors between Ancestry and FamilySearch and how to transfer information.
