too bad

that also killed off the useful feedback dialogue about errors on ancestry.co.uk

their ineffective public relations department claims a monopoly on external communication which is normal for any employer of more than one thousand people

in this very important thread:-
Exporting GED files from Ancestry Trees: "Just tried the new facility. Are the the FAMC and FAMS records missing from the gedcom file?
Can someone else try an export and verify this?"

Ancestry.co.uk - Message Boards: "Ok-final comment (I promise). I now know more than I want about Gedcom files, and I take back the apology. Just because 3 out of 5 of my software prgs. (and FTM) seem to accept the gedcom, it's not in the correct format.

The LDS gedchk report I ran on my tree's gedcom shows 8 syntax errors and 219 cross-reference errors (missing FAMC and FAMS for individuals).

If you want the text file report, email me and I'll send it to you. I gave you the benefit of the doubt, but now I'm just annoyed that you suggested a workaround and implied that everything except the gedcom, PAF, and FTM were defective."

I'm not familiar with the "select all, then save" method..
My browser/OS gives me a choice to either "open" or "save to disk" when I click on the link.

Have you tried right-clicking on the link and selecting "Save Target As" (Windows & Internet Explorer) or right-clicking and selecting "Save Link As" (Windows & Firefox)?

Yes I get the same thing. I'm trying to import my Ancestry gedcom into 'phpgedview' and 'The Next Generation' to display my tree on a website. When importing this file with phpgedview, I get 250 individuals but no relationships, with TNG I get just the source details but no individuals being imported.

Forum posts for both of these programs say it's a problem with Ancestry.
I had the same problem until I figured out that just adding a spouse doesnt add a MARRIAGE relationship! I sent a feedback and made a post about it here:
more on Marriages and Gedcom Exports: "I sent the following via feedback, fyi:

When clicking 'Add marriage information' from the Family view pages, the url generated is:

When it should actually be:

Also currently, adding a spouse does NOT add a marriage event, AND when attempting to add a marriage event, it will not be added if all 3 information fields are blank even though a selection button for the current spouse is checked. (A work-around is to add 'unk' or something in the Location or Description fields, if a date is unknown)

My suggestion would be to have the proper marriage event boxes display immediately after adding a spouse, so that a marriage (or some sort of union) is registered for the couple.

No union causes major problems in the otherwise excellent (imo) Gedcom Export."
