      I think your client is hoping to transfer the family information FROM Ancestry and move it TO a genealogy program, rather than the other way around.  Unfortunately, Ancestry does not have a method of exporting from Ancestry.ca to a GEDCOM file.  If this is the direction your client wants to go, then I don’t see any easy way to do it; it will have to be re-typed.


      One likely reason for this blockage is that any visitor to your client’s Ancestry.ca family tree could just lift the years of work in a few clicks.  That would be bad publicity for Ancestry.

      Hello all,


      I am working with a client and she is doing her family tree on Ancestry.ca. Is there any way, short of re-typing all of her information, that she can put the family tree into a genealogy program?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
