In Topic: Ancestry sync

After clicking on the TreeShare icon, I'd much rather have TreeShare start with the person currently displayed in RM rather than the person at the beginning of the Index List. 


In Topic: _UID in GEDCOMs

25 January 2018 - 03:34 PM

I think this is an okay idea gone wrong.

 

Assume that I add JOHN DOE to my RootsMagic tree, someone else adds JOHN DOE to their PAF tree, someone else adds JOHN DOE to their FTM tree, and now there are 3 separate and unique _UID's for the same JOHN DOE. 

 

Then we 3 all upload our GEDCOM to Ancestry and all 3 JOHN DOE records on Ancestry would contain a different _UID.  

 

A 4th person comes along and merges those 3 records into their Ancestry tree and gets a copy of each _UID, none of them helpful to him, Ancestry or anyone else. 

 

I am convinced that _UID's on a tree are nothing but useless, distracting, and wasteful clutter.
