When you set up automatic synchronization of your tree, your software will compare your Ancestry tree to your Family Tree Maker tree to see if there are any discrepancies when you open or close the program. If any variations are identified, they will robotically trigger you into a synchronization procedure.
- Starting a Manual Synchronization
When your tree is set up for guided syncing, you can choose to sync on-demand at any moment while using the Family Tree Tool. There are two possibilities for manually syncing.

You’ll get a variation summary screen manifesting during the synchronization procedure when you will have the ability to revisit the variations that have been discovered during any sync before finalizing synchronization. To sensibly review the sync Change Log, we recommend pressing the blue Stop Timer link (at the log window’s bottom right corner).
You can find a brief overview of discovered sync variations in the Change Log for Sync tab. By pressing on the left side of this box, the View/Print Details button, you may see more detailed information.
