Hello Everyone,


I am currently using Family Historian as my main software to organize my family genealogy.

I have started uploading my data to FamilySearch Family Tree, and I miss the ability to synchronize (compare) my research with the data stored at FamilySearch.


I have tried RootsMagic to see how it handles the sync process but I got confused.

Does it sync Media I stored at my computer up to FamilySearch?

Does it download Media from Family Tree? 

Sources? Do it handles that?


I have tried 20 generations and after waiting a lot I could not find any sources on my local database.

Is there any trick?


Thanks a lot!

RootsMagic does not have support for the Memories portion of FamilySearch Family Tree right now.  It will be coming.


On the FamilySearch Person Tools there is a Sources tab where you can move the sources back and forth. Sources do not come over when you Import from Family Tree or add a person. We have a series of videos that will demonstrate all the FamilySearch tools.
