Ketchell, I'm one of those eagerly awaiting the Ancestry sync. Not to try to change your mind, but here's why I'd like that capability:
-- Ancestry.com constantly buys new digital data and puts them into the mix. Their servers operate in the background trying to match that information to the people in my tree. I then am notified and can evaluate. This matching occurs across several Ancestry-associated platforms, such as newspapers.com and fold3.com. I've had three brick walls busted in the last year from more difficult sources like arrival lists that arrived via hints.
-- the huge user base of Ancestry, precisely because it is so easy to use, puts me in touch with people around the world searching the same lines. The DNA connections have led to many cousins, some living within a few miles of me that I didn't know existed!
I think RM7 is pretty darn good, and I hope your sorting restoration gets implemented soonest.
