With all the anticipation of an assumed imminent release of RM4 that's been in the air for awhile now. And the announcement by HP of the upcoming release of a Windows Home Server, might you be working on a version of RM that allows multiple simultaneous updates and Web hosting? Or am I just dreaming? dry.gif I think I know the answer. smile.gif

Not sure what you anticipate, but surely hope the answer is yes! I was just about to write a request for exactly that capability.

Interesting. I haven't noticed that yet but I'll certainly keep and eye on it. 90,000 individuals! I'm only at about 100 which is why I probably haven't noticed any problems yet. How long do you work on a family tree to get to 90,000 people??

The >90,000 individuals is a group effort that has gone on for 12+ years. Everyone in the database is related in some way, the common denominator being the colonists who arrived in northern New México on August 18, 1598 with the Juan de Oñate expedition. You may view our work at www.hgrc-nm.org.

It sounds good to me, but, always remember and don't ever forget that if you have added anything to the database on the desktop files, before restoring from the laptop, you will overwrite those additions made to the desktop.

If you have worked on both machines, about all you can do is export a GEDCOM or selected people, selected by date last edited, then import that GEDCOM file to the other machine and do a share merge. (OR import the GEDCOM to a new database and copy or drag and drop your editings to the main database.)

#6 -- You only need to copy the multimedia files with the latest modification dates, it saves time.

The ShareMerge feature of RM is a great thing in principle; one problem though, every time I merge I get a few duplicate facts, especially births and deaths, relating to long established individuals for no apparent reason. Typically, say 50 duplicates out of >90,000 individuals in the database, just enough to be and aggravation. sad.gif They are not always the same individuals. I am using RM 3.2.4

The description of ShareMerge seems to fit my needs exactly. However, when I import and merge a modified GEDCOM back into the original there is a smattering of duplicated facts; Not a high % of all facts, but enough to be a major inconvenience. The individuals are merged OK; just duplicated facts are the issue. To check this matter, I have made several attempts, even several where no changes were made on the "modified" GEDCOM, but still the duplicates are generated when re-imported. I am using RM 2.3.4: the database contains >91,000 names. An experiment with a database of just a few names seems to work without producing duplicates.

May I recast the question, seeing we have no response! Is anyone using the ShareMerge feature to allow capture of input from a second researcher with success? Has anyone experienced the problem I encountered?
