When exporting a GEDCOM from FTM2012 or Ancestry.com they both merge the "Description" and "Place" fields for each fact into a single PLAC tag in the GEDCOM. This is a HUGE mess for ANY software that you import to. If you made extensive use of the description field in either Ancestry.com or FTM, be prepared to spend a lot of time cleaning up the locations. It also makes it very hard to share your files with others since the GEDCOM will import to their tree (even another FTM tree) with the places a complete mess.
