I was working with someone new to RootsMagic on importing a tree she had been working on in FamilySearch. She was troubled that there were a lot of people she had entered and or matched to in FamilySearch that did not show up in her RootsMagic tree. She had used an import with 10 ancestors and 10 descendents, but the result is the same when using 4 to 6 ancestors or descendants. She was using the free version and thought it might be a limited feature, but we duplicated the problem using my full version. Upon looking into the issue, it appears that the people missing are the descendants of siblings of her direct line ancestors, basically the descendants of cousins. We did a similar import starting with her farthest descendant, and all the siblings/cousins came in, but it left out the ancestors of any spouses of the descendants she had entered.
This was not intuitive and we both assumed that if we imported with a request for 6 generations of ancestors and 6 generations of descendants (or other number) it would list 6 generations of her direct line ancestors and 6 generations of descendents for all her direct line including all their downline descendants. Did we miss something or is this the way it is.
If there is a way to include both ancestors and full down lines of descendents in a single import, we would like to know.
