Howdy, first time here, just joining this group of addicts and others (chorus of "Hi Rob") ...
I imagine there are many besides myself with both an Ancestry tree and a RootsMagic tree, and thinking ahead as to what we will need to do. I understand when the upgrade happens (trying to wait patiently!), I'll have a choice of either creating a new Ancestry tree from my RM tree, or creating a new RM tree from my Ancestry tree, and then attempting to merge them, and finally produce one tree only, available on both Ancestry and RM (at least that's the goal).
But the big question is whether it will be easier to merge the trees on the RM side or the Ancestry side. I suspect our beta testers may already have some insight on this, and I'd love to hear from them. I imagine there may be small compatibility issues, on one or both sides, that may dictate which way will be best. Or the tools to do the merging may be better on one side or the other.
I'd love to hear from others with any relevant experience. I did my tree work on my Fathers side on Ancestry, and on my Mothers side in RM, and now looking forward to merging the two trees together.
