It did seem to fix it. Apparently the PLAC tag was unfilled for any person who was not imported from FTM. After I inserted the two tags the place hierarchy thing allowed me to set the hierarchy and then when I filled in the place they were recognized by the program and things then worked as they should. Thank you again.

I am using 0.8. I am not sure what you mean by structure of a birth place. In Birth places that were created by FTM they appear like "Offerle, Edwards County, Kansas". However for BPs that were created through Ancestris they appear like ", , , Kinsley, , ," .  The later ones do not show up in either the Entities list or in reports. When I create a new one I click the + button and go to the address tab where I enter a city and/or a state and/or a country. In addresses that were created in FTM nothing at all shows up in the edit page for that address.

I am not sure what you mean by Places Hierarchy. If you could explain that and how to display it in the program then maybe I can tell you.

My Gedcom was initially created on FTM and the exported to gedcom. Birthplace data that was in place before the export seems to work fine in Ancestris, but birthplace data that I have subsequently entered does not seem to show up in the places I would expect it to show up, such as entity table and reports. The data that I enter does seem to be in the database but is somehow incorrect. How do I figure out what is wrong with the data that I enter? Oddly enough when I try to edit those records that do seem to work right I can't find the data anywhere in the edit pages. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

ENGLISH / Descendant list

I am new to Ancestris and am impressed by what I see so far, but I tried to create a descendant list from my gedcom file and get strange results.

For example

1.1x1.3.6 NA, Michael "Mike" (I066)* 2 Nov 1879 Linn, + 1940 Kansas
1.1x1.3.7 ... (I067)* ... , + ...
1.1x1.3.8 ... (I068)* ... , + ...
1.1x1.3.9 ... (I058)* ... , + ...

The entries just following Mike are only shown as ...  I can see no difference between the records which work correctly and the records which only give ...
This ged file was converted over from another program. Can anybody explain why one record works and others don't? It seems that most don't but sometimes several in a row work. There seems to be no apparent rhyme to what works.
