TREE MAKER for WINDOWS
How to Create & Configure your Report to put on
this web site.
(for Family Tree Maker for Windows, version 3.4)
Step 1: - open
FTM version 3.4 (lower versions do not have this Genealogy Report option).
Using your index, find and go to the ancestor furthest back that you want to
start your report with.
Click 'View' then 'Genealogy Report'
appears, but, now you want to select what options you want to include.
'Contents' then '# of Generations to Show' and choose a number that shows the
generation born up to the 1920's. You don't want to choose more than that because
then you will end up including people who are still living. Not good - could
really upset someone if you put their personal information on the Internet
without their permission. [Now, due to some changes in the technology that I am
doing the conversion of these files with, there are some changes from the original instructions which make the rest of the procedure much
Contents/Options, select "Do not include Source Information (Reason for
this is it makes the file very long, and wastes server space.
You can pass this
along to anyone who contacts you looking for more information....), and
"Automatically find oldest ancestor."
Now, just go to File/Export
Genealogy Report/Save as type:, select Formatted Text (.rtf), enter a file name,
Attach the resultant .rtf file to an email, and forward it
to Youngstown Genealogy
