Everything is appreciated,
as I am new to RM,
so please be patient as I try to be clearer with my dilemma:
It makes some sense what you are saying.
The problem I have had is using either hint functions in RM that it finds for Ancestry.com.
If I use RM hint functions, and i use the hint function within Ancestry;
(as well as dealing at the same time with multiple spouses, etc.)--
It is like Ancestry and RM are 2 people trying to get thru the same doorway at the same time
when they sync.
The search for me is much clearer in Ancestry for looking at and adding records.
The beauty of Rootsmagic lies it its ability to deal with sources and events correctly,
among other things. I have been with FTM for 7 years, but it tangled my source citations
and links to media. a month and a half of support chat and engineers left me on my own,
so I finally gave up and found that Rootsmagic does does the job!
Plus and minuses to everything, but Rootmagic works as the best intermediary to exporting a gedcom
correctly to my TNG site. The only down side I am having
is that It just seems the treesync
plays havoc for existing people updates,
with my tree anyway....
yes of course, if i didnt use treesync, all is well...
but the only un-mangled copy of my tree I have is on Ancestry,
and is slowly being pruned and brought into RM.
The FTM tree and its backups are all corrupted,
when i looked at the source files and media links with
5000 unlinked that were linked before.
I trusted to long all was well without looking closer.
I am excited about RM,
10 years of searching in the records and catalogs on Ancestry
with a workflow I am use to,
makes me want to do my research there,
and bring those thru a 1-way sync into RM.
I am hoping to not update back into my Ancestry Tree,
because when I am finished with this major import,
I can rely sole on the RM hint system,
and if possible delete the ancestry tree,
and keep what I have in Rootsmagic,
and sync between RM and TNG,
and rely on RM hint and websearch system .
