Need a little help

 

While In the process of reorganizing and cleaning up my RootsMagic databases, I renamed my primary active database. I then tried to find how to rename my Ancestry database to match. I can not find instructions to do this. RM says I am still connected to the same old database in Ancestry. Can you rename an Ancestry database? I guess I could reload my RM database to Ancestry, but wont that reset all my hints?

 

Any advice appreciated

Thanks

Rick

Open the tree in Ancestry.

 

Click the button with the tree name  in the upper left.

 

Select "Tree Settings" from the drop down list.

 

Rename your tree and click [Save Changes].

 

The Ancestry tree is identified by a number, not the name, so this change shouldn't affect anything other than the displayed name.

Thanks,

Figured out the issue. I had accidentally saved the wrong RM db to ancestry under the wrong name. Changing the name will not fix it, so I am just reloading the correct db with the correct name. My bad.
