Quick Question regarding media files loaded to RM from Ancestry by Tree Share and/or Web Hints
I've noticed that when I load an event from Ancestry Web Hints to RM the media file appears to sometimes be duplicated. This happens when multiple hints are accepted for the same person. The events are different, but Ancestry has the same media image loaded for each.
Here is an example:
Person A has a death and a probate event that were brought in from A.com using web hints. The result is as follows -
Media image #1 listed in media gallery as "005783047_00133.jpg" attached to probate source, attached to death event
Media image #2 listed in media gallery as "005783047_00133 (005783047_00133).jpg" attached to probate source, attached to probate event
Not only does this get "messy" and confusing, but it seems it could ultimately considerably swell the size of my media directory.
Another example would be if a large family of say 10-12 people are all listed in the same census record. If you load a source with the census image for each individual, the media image will be duplicated 10 or 12 times in your media gallery.
If I loaded the census records to RM directly, I would point all the sources to the same media file.
Am I missing something? Is this how this is supposed to work?
Any thoughts appreciated
