Family Tree Makers Support

Keeping a proper update of your task requires backing up your essential data and starting synchronization for adjustments made to such vital facts. It’s the same story when using FTM 19, and it’s critical to understand how to sync modifications made to your generated family tree and back up its contents.

As you know, Software has recently updated the Family Tree Maker application.

It could be challenging to back up your essential family tree data or even store sync logs correctly due to these upgrades. Therefore, it’s critical to understand how to synchronize your logs and back up your family tree properly. You have to back up your tree files before you can synchronize.

Let’s start by discussing back up a tree file.

How to Backup a Tree File in Family Tree Maker 2019?

It is essential to fully comprehend the following details when backing up your Family Tree Maker 2019 tree files.

  • Before making any big modifications to your tree files, you must regularly and routinely do a full backup. Why? If your recent file is altered, it guarantees that you can recover your tree, along with any associated links and media.
  • You must manually do backups because the FTM 2019 program’s automatic backups will not include media and won’t have the data needed to relink your tree to Ancestry. So, never depend on backups that happen automatically.
  • A cloud storage platform like Dropbox or an external hard drive should be used for current full backups.

What is the Next Step in Backing Up Tree Files in FTM 19?

Simply adhere to these steps:

  • To begin with, open the tree you wish to backup, choose a file, and then choose Backup from the menu. The Backup the Tree dialogue box will then pop up.
  • After that, choose a Location and enter a new name for your backup file in the Backup Filename area.
  • By selecting Location on this computer (Custom Directory in Windows devices), you can save the backup file to a folder designated for the Family Tree Maker on your PC. Removable media, which could be a USB flash drive or a hard disk, are available options.
  • After that, click the last backup button after checking the boxes for media files, historical events, and web favorites, allowing recovered files to resume syncing.

How to Use Family Tree Maker 2019’s Sync Logs feature?

You can examine any family tree file synchronization you started by going to the Sync Log screen. You may view the precise changes from Ancestry, the Family Tree Maker 2019 transitions, and the different terminology on this screen.

  • Use Sync Logs in FTM 2019 by doing the following steps:
  • Start by giving your main working file—your tree, for instance—a straightforward name like “Expert.”
  • Then, you can finish the name with something like “Expert 2019 11510” by examining the family tree version.
  • To receive updates while renaming a tree file, navigate to the selected tree option, which is situated in the upper left corner of the plan workspace.
  • As a result, you can rename your Sync Logs.
