    Problem with uploading Gedcom from FTM 2017
    by glashfordjr
    When I create a gedcom from FTM 2017 and upload to familytreedna, the records are uploaded but the last name has disappeared on every record. Has anyone else experienced this problem? I have used FTM 2017 gedcoms before and had no problems. Thanks for any help.
