Renee -

So, still the same. This would be a nice feature. Maybe it should be added to the wish list.

 

I have had one hint that helps some. When viewing the "abstract" on line in Ancestry, first click on the "print" button, and then capture the desired text of the abstract from the html screen that appears. Now paste into the details/research notes tab in the RM source record. The result is a much cleaner, better organized, and seems to require little or no editing/formatting.

 

Thanks for the info

Rick

@TomH

 

Actually, I misspoke. I meant to say that I would create a new RM database using the group called "RM Review Completed". I would then use TreeShare to upload this new RM Tree to a new Tree in Ancestry.

 

However, after reading all the posts and thinking about this some more, I believe I will just continue to work with the old RM and Ancestry trees and avoid all the problems associated with breaking the Tree Share connection. Instead I will just focus on the Ancestry Web Hints and share that data with my RM Tree, closing the hints as I go.

 

Eventually, when my RM tree review is completed (of course that will probably be never), I can either use tree share to share back the other way, or consider creating a whole new Ancestry Tree, using the "Disconnect but Preserve" tool you referenced.

 

Thanks for the info.

That's a good point. Perhaps having the wrong expectation has added to the frustration. If you aren't trying to make the two data bases the same, and you are just pulling information from one, or adding information to the other, then the process is not so rigid and it is easier to accept the platform differences.

 

Thanks
