So, I've made a mess of things by keeping my tree on Ancestry for so long [well, not entirely my fault, Ancestry shares in the blame]. I purchased RM about 9-10 months ago to get back to doing things the 'right way'. However, I am running into several issues and I don't know if RM doesn't have that feature/function or if I'm missing something.
1. Ancestry has multiple facts listed for each person [mostly census records]. Is there a way to merge duplicate facts? If not, is there a way to delete more than one fact at a time [to delete duplicate facts for each person in my database one at a time would probably cause me to just start a database from scratch]. The facts are also tagged twice in the media file [again, mostly the census media items].
2. I apparently started out sourcing properly at one time, but then 'fell off the wagon' and In my database I have several repositories that are essentially the same from the completely unhelpful "Have a copy" to "My Files" to a proper "McKay Research Files". Is there any way to merge them? Or can I print all the sources that have "have a copy" so that I can change the repository to the proper one and then delete the horribly named one?
3. Media files - I know, I know so frustrating. My issue [aside from having to rename over 800 files] is that almost all of them have a duplicate! Is there a way [either in the master Media Gallery or the person's media gallery] to merge or delete duplicates?
I had some other questions, but they basically revolve around the need to have a merge tool where there isn't one or a multiple selection tool for deleting [on windows a Ctrl+click to select several things to delete at once].
I do have screenshots of my issues, but couldn't figure out how to attach them to this post. If none of this is possible and it all needs to go to the wish-list area, just let me know
Thanks in advance for any assistance,
P.S. if anyone knows of a service that I can pay for where they will clean up my database and sources, I'd like that information as well LOL!
