Thanks for the reply. As I find the time, I should go over to the Site Comments forum and rant some there about the general sorry state of Ancestry.com citations. I posted here because my more immediate question was suggestions on getting FTM 2011 to approximate Mills.

I've read through some of the thread you linked to, and it confirms my belief that clicking on "Attach to someone on my tree" is always, ALWAYS a Bad Idea(TM).

I *never* allow Ancestry to create the links; I download all images locally, build the citations manually in FTM, attach the local image, then sync back up to my online trees. I NEVER sync down. Just got tired of cleaning up the mess.
