In Topic: Census (Family) and Residence (Family) fact type problems

12 October 2017 - 11:11 AM

Related question - do people find value in using census facts? I began with ancestry.com, which only saves a small fraction of the information present in a census return ignoring, for example, occupation.

In Topic: Dangers of Tree Share

12 October 2017 - 10:45 AM

I was a beta user of Tree Share and am a huge fan of it despite still not being certain of what my long term workflow will be. If you use both Tree Share and FamilySearch synchronization from RootsMagic you have the opportunity of leveraging much more if other people's work. I have a live/hate relationship with ancestry. It's probably the best service I use for rapidly generating hints about family members. It has an advantage over the fsmukysearch synch which is that I can test out ideas without hurting other people when I make mistakes. My overuse if family search syncs has creating lots of frustrations for others when I did bad merges due to overtirednesd/ignorance and I now use it on a 27" monitor where I can simultaneously sanity check changes in a browser window focused on famikysearch.org

still, with treeshare I now have the promise of using RootsMagic as my canonical store of correctdata and mirroring that to both ancestry and famikysearch.org last night I discovered approximately 400 unknown (to me) cousins because of tree share. Yes it generates legions of challenges but the payoff is so wonderful.

In Topic: An old can of worms - Place names

12 October 2017 - 10:28 AM

I also find the county checker only a hindrance. I wish there was a way to disable it. I also struggle with places whose names change at different times. I will frequently import raw data that says:
" born Rawtenstall formerly Lower Booths" or where a place name is more specific than a name that is known today - such as the name of a farm or large house.

In Topic: SQLiteError 1, in RM 7221

23 December 2016 - 09:16 AM

I'm also seeing the same issue, also with RM In my case it's a new RM file that I created by dragging a person and their ancestors to a new blank file.


Is there any way to enable debug logging and see what the bad SQL query is?
