In Topic: Tree Share Connection Lost

Once again, Ancestry has changed their interface that RootsMagic uses without telling anyone. RootsMagic is working on an update to fix the problem. Be patient!

Without know what fact/event you are talking about I cannot begin to help. Just a guess, have you edited the sentence structure and left something there?

Family Origins could export a GEDCOM file that can be imported into RM7.

In Topic: Ancestry.com web hints without sharing?

08 December 2018 - 08:45 AM

The short answer is no.


Tree share works by either uploading a RM database to Ancestry or downloading an Ancestry database to a new RM database. The process creates an Ancestry link id in the RM database which is then used to query Ancestry for hints. As part of the upload process you can set the newly created Ancestry database to be private and Ancestry members cannot see it. Without a paid Ancestry account you cannot see the details of any hints anyway so I don't see any benefits to uploading.
