FTM 2012 Transfer of Citations when Syncing

Do the detailed notes of Source Citations transfer from FTM 2012 desktop version to Ancestry.com online trees when synced? If so, where can you find them?

Thanks
Ginger

Ginger,

Not sure what you mean by Detailed Notes.

Are you talking about Citations Notes? That is the field in the Sources Workspace, selected Citation, and at the bottom of the Center panel, there is a Link, Notes, and Media Tab. Those Notes are not uploaded to your AMT. In the right panel, is Citation Details and Citation Text, they are uploaded.

Hi Russ,

Thanks for your reply. Ok, I see the boxes on the right hand side with the Citation text. Do I have to check the box that says "Include in ref. note" for it to show up in the Ancestry.com tree? Because so far, I don't see where it shows up in the online tree. Can you tell me where it would show up in the online tree?

Thanks
Ginger

Ginger,

Yes, you need the Check Mark for it to show up.

You should see the reference note in the Sources tab in the AMT for that Citation.

Ginger,

I just checked one of mine, and the Citation Text does not appear in the AMT. I am going to follow up on that. I thought it was provided.

Ginger,

I finally had a chance to go back to look at this a little closer. The Citation TEXT is available in your AMT. See attached.

To get this, go to the Fact and Source menu (2nd from right) select Source Citation menu (again the 2nd from right), then double click on the Citation (detail) you want and a new screen will appear with the Citation Text.

Sorry for the confusion earlier. I just hadn't looked that for earlier.

Thanks for the question.

Hi Russ,

I do not see that screen. I am looking for the citation text that Ancestry.com automatically added to the citation when I downloaded an image (ie, a census) from Ancestry.com.

This is what I see when I click on Source Citation:

Ginger,

Double click on any of those 3 Citations and you will be taken to the screen is showed you.
