Sorry I don't know nor use Rootsweb for uploading GEDCOM files. You might look for a Rootsweb Group page.
A GEDCOM file is a GEDCOM file from Family Tree Maker. What happens on Rootsweb, I can't help you with.
"Can I piggy-back here? Because I have a similar question (I use FTM 2009 and Windows 7).
For the first time, I am interested in adding a GEDCOM from Rootsweb to my FTM database. If I upload it as a new tree, it will be separate from what I have…"
"You can do batch resizing in Picasa. With the images selected choose "export to folder" from the file menu. In the options dialog choose "resize" and select the pixel width you want.

Thank you for your suggestions. As I stated previously, I do not own an old copy of this software. I will need to find another way of accomplishing my task. I am still open to suggestions if anyone else has one.
Don't worry, I was not…"
I did NOT suggest that you remove any source-citations.
Bottom line here. The feature you want is NOT in version 2010.
Again, IF you have an old version of Family Tree Maker (Version 11 or earlier) that Feature does exist. I explained…"
I offered a suggestion to you. (old version)
I can not tell you how many times that users wanted the feature removed. The developers listened. (I guess).
Again, I do understand what you are trying to do.
"I don't want to remove any source citations or other information from the file. I just want to add a source citation that explains where I got this data.
I have a dozen gedcoms from other researchers and it is a real pain to open each of them…"
I always try to make sure I can answer this question. Where did I get that piece of information. What I think Penny is trying to do, and I know I have done, is to NOT only understanding where the 'other' person found that…"
"I don't know the answer to your question but I wonder why you want to do that. If I were to aquire a GEDCOM file from another researcher I would want to know all the sources they have in order to verify the information contained within that…"
The database that I would be importing this into is one that I only use to track trails I find for future research. My documented research is kept in a separate file.
The problem with the "simplest method" is that there are more…"
The answer to your question about applying "a single source to all the facts imported" is no.
I will not import a file from anyone DIRECTLY into my Family File. I have spent a lot of time formatting the information the way I want…"
I have a gedcom provided by another researcher than I would like to import into my research database but I would like all of the new information to have a source citation that points back to this researcher/database. Is there a way to apply a single source to all the facts imported?I thought the simplest method might be to open the gedcom as a new tree and try to apply a single source to all the facts first, but I can't see any way to apply a single citation to multiple facts/persons.
