10. Mapping Your Family Tree with Family Atlas

Has anyone used this yet?

I have a tree that I downloaded from Ancestry. I followed the wizard’s instructions to import my tree into Family Atlas (FA) from RM8. When I got to the screen that requested I choose a file, the file I wanted was not available.

FA will only allow *.rmgc and *.rmg extensions - however, my tree has the *rmtree extention.

Does FA not recognize RM8 extensions? Should I just use the GEDCOM import?

Thank you in advance

Yes, it’s best to do a GEDCOM import.

Dang. Ok, thank you for the rapid response, it is much appreciated!
