John’s advice is essentially correct.
The FHUG Knowledge Base has advice in Exporting a Family Tree with/without Media:
Especially see under Export to Website Without Sensitive Data that focusses on Ancestry.
The FHUG Knowledge Base has advice on the Export Gedcom File Plugin:

That is recognised by most products, so needs to be the UTF8 character encoding.
That is an option in FH but there are also other GEDCOM adjustments that are needed for Ancestry.
