Ancestry.com to Legacy7 software how do you transfer tree

I have decided I need to use a family tree software program and have decided to use Legacy7 and have downloaded the free version.

How do I get my Ancestry.com tree into the Legacy7 software program. I'm not really sure how to do it because I think I'm doing it backwards.

1.Go to your Ancestry tree and pick any person's profile.

2.Next to the Tree Name at the top will be a link that says "Tree pages" - click that.

3). On the page that comes up in the right hand sidebar click the button that says "Export Tree". This will create a GEDCOM. When itis finished it will say "Download Gedcom".

Click the Orage Download Button and then open Legacy and import the GEDCOM file you just downloaded into it.


Note that Photos, etc. attached to your Ancestry Tree will *NOT* be included in teh GEDCOM.
