Import of TMG 8.08 data into Family Tree Maker 2014

Import of TMG 8.08 data into Family Tree Maker 2014

Has anyone had any luck with this?
Import went to completion using FTM 2012, but it fails at 30% using FTM 2014 (v 22.0.0.1239).

I haven't analyzed the FTM 2012 import results fully, but I have noticed that exhibits (all images) attached to my sources did not transfer. That's a show-stopper bug.
I was hoping for more complete results with FTM 2014, but things aren't looking good right now.

I have spoken with support and they requested my database. I'm waiting for a response.

I too have had major problems with a direct import from TMG 8.08 to FTM 2014. Many illogical person links, had me "married" to my son-in-law because I was a witness to wedding, etc., etc. I gave up and resorted to gedcom transfer to see how that worked. I have spent the past year and a half updating all of my sources to include linked PDF or jpeg files of the sources themselves and it appears all of that will be lost in any transfer to FTM for uploading as a family tree on Ancestry (at least the media files do NOT transfer with sources via a gedcom import).
