I just bought FTM3 for Mac. I downloaded my tree from Ancestry, uploaded my gedcom file. All is right with the world. I like the things I can do on FTM, like correcting the dates, places, or even some of the reports that can't be published on But now I want to upload the changes to and I am wondering about the repercussions of this? Will it overwrite my tree that is already there? Did all of the pics, stories, and extras come down with the gedcom, so when I upload it, they will be back?

(I should note that when I first got FTM 2 weeks ago, Ancestry was having all of their problems and I am still having problems syncing. So this is where all of the above concerns come from.)

In summary: Can I link a tree that I have edited in FTM, back to the original tree in Ancestry because I had not previously "uploaded and linked" it? It looks like when I do that, it will create a whole new tree, is this true?
