This is a plea to RootsMagic, please hurry up and get the Ancestry synch bit sorted out. For years I've struggled with FTM for it's link to Ancestry, now that link is broken and Mackiev want between £65,00 and £80.00 for a new version that will link to Ancestry. On top of that I was in the process of reinstalling all my computers when the ancestry link broke and I had done quite a few updates to my main local file and now FTM cannot open that file at all . . so a week's work lost.
It will be a cold day in h*** before I payout for a new copy of FTM which costs double the price of the old one with no guarantees that it will work.
So Please, please, please hurry up so that I can settle down to using a decent program for the little time I have left on the planet.
Actually they are giving a discount it's only like $25 USD for the upgrade and should equate to less in GBP. Be patient from what I'm hearing from Mackiev the stress of about 5000 beta testers synching at the same time is degrading ancestry. I would say that the same thing would apply to Rootsmagic.
It's not a "software" issue on our side it's a "server" issue on Ancestry.com
