    I’m thinking of buying RootsMagic in order to download the tree I have an Ancestry, in order to download media copies of the sources. I know that I can download each one separately but have read that this is a quicker way if you have more than a few sources saved to the Ancestry tree.

    Has anyone used this method, and how successful have you found it?

    I can't believe you can only do 1 media copy at a time?? If this is the case, then you should look at FTM2019 as you can completely synch multiple trees between Ancestry and your pc.

    Hi Tim, sorry I meant that in order to avoid downloading the source media individually which Ancestry caters for, I wanted to download copies of all the source media I have attached to my Ancestry tree. I’d read that both RootsMagic and FTM packages provided the ability to sync trees and media from Ancestry to PC. As I already have an offline tree on Family Historian I’d only be using the new package for this one off exercise, I was thinking of RootsMagic as it is less expensive than FTM.

    Would the free RootsMagic Essentials do the job or a RootsMagic free trial?
