Workflow/Process to synchronize Ancestry.com, RM7, MyHeritage

13 November 2017 - 06:30 PM

About six months ago, I stopped using Family Tree Maker 2014 as my database program yet continued to update my family tree at Ancestry.com (World Subscription). I bought RM7 earlier this year with the plan to use it as my primary database program.  I recently bought a complete annual MyHeritage subscription and started my complete family tree by importing a GEDCOM. Its family tree consistency checker has identified 328 consistency issues (e.g., child older than parent, died too old).  Ancestry.com has about 500 of my 2000 media (photos, docs, etc)
What would you suggest as a smart (minimum total time) process for synchronizing family history data on Ancestry, RM7 and MyHeritage?  I'd like to have a complete RM7 database with all media and all the non-media family history data at Ancestry and MyHeritage by the end of 2018.  I also have an incomplete family tree at FamilySearch that I'd like to update next year.  (Just so others have more complete accurate data from FamilySearch).  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
I also welcome note sync and custom fact/field naming convention suggestions. :)
