Creating a TreeVault Antenna Tree

When you are logged in to TreeVault® and open an FTM tree for the first time, you are automatically prompted to create a TreeVault Antenna tree from it if you haven’t done so already. If you want to create your Antenna tree using the current tree as the FTM Source tree, click Create Antenna Tree in the message that appears and then Close in the message that appears after that.

Note: You can have only one Antenna tree at a time, and only one FTM Source tree can be linked to your Antenna tree. If you later decide to use a different Source tree to create an Antenna tree, the first Antenna tree will be deleted. Similarly, if you use your Antenna tree to create a new FTM Source tree, only changes to this new FTM tree will be applied to your Antenna tree.

You can also create an Antenna tree from an FTM tree any time you like using the TreeVault icon on the main toolbar or in the TreeVault Cloud Services panel on the Current Tree tab on the Plan workspace. This is described in the following topics:

Once the TreeVault Antenna tree is created, it will be linked with the FTM Source tree and any changes you make to the Source tree in Family Tree Maker will be applied to the Antenna tree automatically.
