Just some observations when doing a Web Merge, with FTM2017, with a Social Security Death Index (SSDI) Record. Specifically the Death Location fact, creating / using a Last Residence Fact, a State Issued Fact, and the use of the SSN.

I have a question -- I am using FamilyTreeMaker 2017 with windows 10 and have a large tree on Ancestry. I was trying to replace an older tree BUCHHOLZ-CLARKSON2017 with my latest FTM tree, so I downloaded from Ancestry. Luckily I have not deleted the older tree, even though I upload a NEW tree BUCHHOLZ-CLARKSON2017 Dec, 2017. Lucky because that new tree does not have any media where as the older tree has 1845. I think I used the advice to just sync between FTM and Ancestry this time. But earlier I use the downloading of a GED from the older tree. Neither gave me the media records. I intend to get my tree all downloaded and then delete the extra tree. How do I get the media into my FTM2017. Thanks, MaryinSD
