Hi Everyone,

 

I have only used Ancestry.com.

 

At one point I was locked out of my old account due to an old email change and could not seem to get a reply from Ancestry support, so I created a new account, uploaded a backup gedcom, and started over with media uploads and hint linking.

 

Then Ancestry contacted me and helped restore access to the old account.

 

My dream is to be able to one day download both of the trees, one from each Ancestry account, with all media preserved, merge them together, and then upload the final product to one existing account and use that account going forward.

 

Could this dream become a reality? What software can do this?

 

Thank you, and regards to all.

John

Like many of us, you need to wait to seethe much-anticipated Ancestry Sync for RM before a confident answer to your question can be given.

 

I anticipate that the Ancestry Sync features will allow you to separately download each of your A.com trees to their own new RM database. Then you can merge those databases within RM, and re-upload to A.com

 

Sounds easy, and it will be, once a bunch of folks havesomeexperience with the new features and can answer new user questions.

 

Hang tight !! It's coming !!
