You guys aren't the only ones. I had the FTM 1 version for Mac and have had the FTM 2 version for Mac since it hit the market. I had a scare today in again the link is lost between the two reports the FTM. Although on one section of the screen it says not connected and then over on the right side it says up to date. So I hit the reconnect button. I realized that FTM didn't have all of my media pictures in it that I have on ancestry. I use Ancestry as my main tree page (I have about 10 on there). I thought oh no it is going to copy my aweful and wrong tree on FTM to ancestry and I will loose everything. Thank goodness what happened was Ancestry created a 2nd duplicate tree (I didn't do it) with the same name but the settings were not all there. Maybe it knows if the changes are too extreme there is something corrupt? Who knows but again it makes me realize that FTM is not my main tree and to not rely on it as things dissapear (sp?). Anyway, I also read that FTM and Ancestry tell customer to constantly break links. Hmmm...why is this? I will bookmark this thread. We Mac users have to stick together!
