FTAnalyzer field FamilySearchID

    On some FTA reports (eg Lost Cousins facts with no facts found to identify Country) there is a column headed FamilySearchID.

    How should include this information in my GEDCOM to have it shown here? I've looked at the FTA website and can't find anything to answer this query; apologies if I've missed it.

    The only reference I can find is associated with Updated Release Version 7.7.1 from 22 Apr 2020 where it simply says "Added FamilySearchID recognition and clickable link in Individuals Report"

    Hi Martin,

    It picks up records where the FamilySearchID has been added by your familly history software. Typically this is FTM 2017/2019 that allows you to connect your records to FamilySearch. I believe that RootsMagic does something similar but I've not used it. When connected it adds an appropriate GEDCOM tag that then gets picked up and used by FTAnalyzer. A typical tag is...


    That's it one line with a tag of FSID and then the ID number.
