moving from Family Tree Maker to a program for a Samsung galaxy Tablet #general


gmfromla1234@...
 

I have used Family Tree Maker for years on my laptop, but that is no longer possible and I am using Samsung's Galaxy A tablet which is android, not windows. FTM does not run on android.  I have my tree on My Heritage and on Ancestry, but my most complete version is on FTM.  I know that I can save data in gedcom, but am not sure how complete that is.  I need a program that will run on android and load all of the .FTMB data.  Are there any suggestions?

Also, can one link the Ancestry tree and/or the My Heritage tree to the FTM information?  It would be so nice to work with only one genealogy program and that that one be the complete one.

Thanks.

If you go to the google play store search for ancestry.com and you will find their app.
It is OK. Not as feature rich as ftm 2019.
You can log in and download your tree to the tablet.

I believe that their app is only for trees not for records.

I have been using My Family Tree (free) on Chrome. I think it would work on Android.  It doesn't have the best instructions, but it works and it seems to have accepted Gedcom from my old program without a problem.
