When using the hints for family tree it all seems to work well except it is a two stage process rather than a single stage. I must copy the events/fact and sources separately.


I have not yet been able to find the definite link between a event/fact and the source that is being used therefore I’m not sure which source to copy over.


My matching screen looks good - But the information screen does not provide a link to which source.


Can I get a definite link?

They way FamilySearch has given us the APIs the hinting and FamilySearch Person Tools are separate. If you use WebHints for FamilySearch and save the facts to Family Tree, you can then use the FamilySearch Person tools to move the fact and sources into RootsMagic. For now, the media does not come with it. You would need to save the media to your computer and then attach it.
