I would like to download a gedcom from Ancestry, then sync it with my RM file. Is that possible, without having to do it one by one?

You can import the gedcom into your existing RM database, but that is not such a good idea. It can be hard to find and correct or merge places and sources and delete unwanted people after they are in the main database.

I import a gedcom into a new database and correct places and sources to my standards and then drag and drop the people I actually want in my database into my main database.

Watch the webinar for Splitting and Combining Files in RootsMagic on the RootMagic website under Learn.
