Using the latest update to RM-7. The name Suffix field is not updating thru the Treeshare on Ancestry. When I change the name suffix in RM, the Treeshare shows a difference between RM and Ancestry. But, there is no check-box to allow me to update to Ancestry. Also, when I delete the suffix in RM, it will not allow the deletion in Ancestry. I have to go to Ancestry and make the delete at Ancestry. Hope this is fixable in the future.

Confirming this is on the development list.

Thank you Renee. It will be a great help since I use the suffix field for more than just Sr, Jr, III, etc.

I am also seeing this same behavior after running the clean data utility.  The last names in upper case are converted to lower case in Roots Magic but there is no check box to have the changed records propagated  to ancestry.com.  Yet they show up as a changed person.

Capitalization is not recognized as a change. That is why there is no option to update in TreeShare. It is on the development list.
