I took advantage of the Christmas discounts and purchased a copy of Rootsmagic for my brother. I then cloned a copy of my database, pruned out most of my wife's ancestry, and gave this somewhat reduced database to my brother.
As time passes, I expect that our two databases will increasingly diverge. I'm hoping to find some suggestions here as to how to easily, perhaps programmatically, identify the specific differences between the databases, and to incorporate, as appropriate, some of these differences into the other brother's database.
