It has been some time since I first posted this question. At that time the response was that "you just have to go to Ancestry, copy the information, return to Roots Magic and paste into the research notes of the source". I was hoping that either something has changed, or that someone may have an alternate process that would be more efficient.
My question is:
Am I not understanding something, or is there a better way to capture the source abstract data and move it to RM?
When you use tree share to bring an event/fact from A.com into RM, the fact, the basic source data, and any media will import, but the source details listed in the A.com "source abstract" will not. If you want those details you have to go to the source in A.com, open the source abstract (hope I'm using the correct term), copy the details to your clipboard, then return to RM and paste the abstract details into the RM source Research Notes section. (At least this is the process I have been using). While it does work, It takes forever if you have numerous facts to transfer from A.com to RM. If you do not do this, all you end up with in RM is the basic source information and media. The details about the source citation, that are available in A.com, do not transfer.
