Step 1: Upload your Family Tree Maker media files
The first step is to get all your Media Files uploaded to your Genosis site - this ensures when Genosis is importing a GEDCOM file it can find the linked media files and properly add them to your site.
Log in to your Genosis site and click on the "Trees" option in the header, then select the "Tree Tools" option.
Next, click on the "Import Media Archive" (see screenshot to the right). This will take you into the import tool that is used to upload your media to the site.
Click on the "Select Files" button, and a Select window will open showing your local computer. Navigate to where Family Tree Maker keeps it's media files:
- If you are using Windows
, your media files will be located in C:\Users\[User Name]\Documents\Family Tree Maker\[Tree Name] (unless you have manually changed it). Replace [User Name] with your computer user name.
- If you are using a Mac
, the media files will be located in /Users/[User Name]/Documents/Family Tree Maker/[Tree Name] (unless you have manually moved them to another location)
Select ALL the media files in the directory (on Windows click on the first file, then hold down Shift and select the last file. On Mac, press Command-A to select all files). Then select "open" and your files will be uploaded.
When the files complete uploading (be patient - it can take some time if you have a lot of media files) press the "Import Media" button to complete the process.
