I have recently had an issue with deleting people in Ancestry tree share.
I keep my main tree in RM and sync to Ancestry. I know there are issues with the sync especially with the slowness of the process and the fact that memorized sources apparently never get over to Ancestry for some reason. But, I like the idea of having my data on ancestry and using the hints and making my tree shareable.
So, recently (2 to 3 weeks) I have had this happen:
Delete a person in RM
Go to treeshare and choose delete in Ancestry
It is deleted from the changed people list
Go back to treeshare and that person is back in the list as being changed (no RM person do I want to add to RM or delete from Ancestry?)
At first it was just a single person and I didn't worry about it too much because it wasn't causing me any troubles. But now I've got about 10 of them and I'm annoyed by it.
- The person isn't Really in Ancestry. If I go to my online tree, they aren't there.
- I think it happens on people where the treehshare function gets interrupted by those weird treeshare errors that arise occasionally (like there is a communication glitch or something between RM and Ancestry and the report the error box comes up). I'm not 100% sure of this, but I wonder if the process gets interrupted somehow and causes this.
- I tried adding the person from treeshare back to RM and then checking in treeshare that they don't show up anymore. That part is good. Then deleting them in RM and using treeshare to delete them in Ancestry and they don't delete.
Anyone else having this?
Anybody found a solution?
