Take a look at this

I believe that FTM is a product owned by Ancestry so their should be a direct link within FTM to access Ancestry

I still use FTM2005 and when i search using it the default is to search

Family Tree Maker 2011 & 2012 have a built in direct link with Ancestry.
Info entered on either Ancestry or family link 2011 & 2012 is automatically entered into both programmes
