Previously I had FamilyTreeManager synced with Ancestry and was using FTM to export branches of a tree into wikitree. However it seemed one major problem with this approach was that it downloads images of all the census source ecetera but doesnt add urls to the ancestry site so when I do a gedcom export it only link to these images on my harddrive.
So I tried an export direct from Ancestry. Fustratingly when I looked at the Gedcom tree it seems for people I added to Ancestry a few years ago the urls were exported as NOTE element to the SOURCE

so were available.
But for people added more recently there were no such links. When I compare the two types of people on the Ancestry site itself I aw that the website field of the citation was set for these people added a few years ago but not for ones added more recently.
What I cant work is if I manually added these links, (Im not sure why I would have done as I didnt use wikitree then) or if Ancestry used to do it and does no longer, and if there is any way to automate the process rather than me having to manually create all the links within Ancestry.
