When using TreeShare I have often noticed name sources on Ancestry which are not in RM.  Unfortunately, using the "update name in RM" option does not appear to work.

 

Apologies if this has already been reported.

Renee has repeatedly explained the differences and that a RM rewrite of its handling of Name and Person (General) or needed.

Thanks, TomH.  I did search for an answer to my query before posting but could not find one.

Thanks, TomH.  Unfortunately, the link you provided doesn't work for me.  I keep getting a message saying that I don't have permission.

 

Please do not worry about it, though.  It is enough for me to know that a RM rewrite is needed!

 

Thanks for your help.

Wrong link. Renee just posted an advisory that covers this: http://forums.rootsm...k-here/?p=84956
