Checking my names again I find many more have become isolated
even my 2x great grand mother which doesn't even show my 2x great
grandfather, her spouse. It just says not directly related!
Checking my images I found these appear to have been removed.
They were there when I first posted a message. I was going to look
at the error message but all the images appear to have gone.
Guess I will better use the back up version 6 and try to upgrade
again. Will do that later.
Here is another error message I got after my upgradel, see
attached. I haven't a clue what it means or how to rectify it

Victor, please read my previous reply
again. What I said was that you can still view the images in
your own external photo viewer in exactly the same way as you
could with FH6, by clicking the icon which is a green circle
with a black triangle in it. I don’t know why you think you
Regarding the missing links between a few
people, absolutely nobody else has reported this problem. They
must have been accidentally disconnected either before or
after the upgrade, but it certainly wasn’t the upgrade itself
which caused it.
very name I have used are attached to other names. This has
been confirmed when I check them on FTM which I copy from FH
tyo FTM now and again. I am able to re attach the names after
checking FTM. Thes must have become detached when I upgraded
As you say I can look at the images in FH but these are small
sizes and when it comec to census images I have rotated them
to a vertical position whiuch is hard to read on the FH
viewer. Much better on my photo software as I can totate it
back to horizontal. The reason I rotate these is so that when
I prnt a narative report they are printed from top to bottom
of the page giving it a full view rather than horizonatally
across a page in smaller size.

Victor, if you have found some 'detached' children they
must have been detached in V6 before the upgrade. V7
definitely does not remove any family links! (I
say this in case anyone reading this is worried about
upgrading having read Victor's post).
Secondly, it is still possible to view images in your own
default photo software. The process is the same as it was
in V6, using the green circle icon with the black triangle
in it. That hasn't changed.

been checking the V7 uograde and have found a number of
names have become detached from the family tree links.
I did get a validation report and it listed 7 names of
children detached from their parents.
But I have discovered many names are now stand alone that
is not on a tree with no oter names to connect it.
Fortunately I have FTM and the names are on there showing
the connections. I then put the names it is linked to.
This is going to be a lot of work to restore things.
For the record I use FTM to give links to ancestry via the
hints. I don't subscribe to either of the hints shown on
I have also found a change oin viewing the images. In V6
when I prompt the images they appear of my photo software
and I can view them at any size I want. On V7 that doesn't
happen and I can only view them on the FH viewer at a
