Moving my Ged files over to my Tree in Ancestry

Moving my Ged files over to my Tree in Ancestry

Hi,
I would like to move my files from PC where I used Family Historian onto Ancestry.
Unfortunately, as I follow the simple guides, I constantly receive an error & it asks me to try again.

I really do not want to have to start again by rebuilding my tree, so any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Family Historian allows one to export a tree in GEDCOM (or GED) file format. Ancestry wants one to use the format GED to upload to Ancestry. Thus I have done it many times with no problem. Use the "File" tab and then choose "Export" and then GEDCOM file". Also one can download your Ancestry tree as a GED file to your PC and immediately bring it up in Family Historian.
