Hi, I use Ancestry for my research and RootsMagic as my main database. I recently started linking my RM to Family Search. With the new link to Ancestry I though it easier to down load from Ancestry to RM. This new RM file when I try to link to Family search I can exchange data but it does not put the FS reference in my new RM file. Any ideas round this problem? My only thought at the moment is to merge both RM files.

 

Regards

The FamilySearch ID is embedded into the person. You can display it after their name by going to Tools>File Options>General and under "Number to display after name" select "FamilySearch ID". If the person's FamilySearch icon is blue then you know the FamilySearch ID is embedded into that person.

Thank you. I had forgotten that. Did everything else.
