FTM - Family finder reports

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Simone Report 2 Apr 2005 21:50

Can anyone help me- I have just run a family finder report on Family Tree Maker- It found 19 matches on my tree and they are all my direct family, i.e brothers, sister and their families, but no ancestors as such- It states that they are included on a specific cd that I need to purchase- What would this cd be? Would it be someone else who has submitted our info or would it be something the mormons may have from parish records- I'm surprised it found only direct family and no further back- I'm a little confused actually Simone x
