Re: Media Links

Mike Tate

What we have forgotten to mention is the Media records that are imported from the FindMyPast GEDCOM include URL web links to the online media files, but FH does not support such web links and requires local PC based media files that you must download from FindMyPast.

The explanation is that those web links are conditional on your subscription to FindMyPast and they cannot be shared around as that would infringe copyright.

You can upload the GEDCOM file back to your FindMyPast account and the web links will then work online.

But importing that GEDCOM file to FH is a different scenario.
