Web Hints Light Bulb for Census Data Already Used

30 June 2017 - 05:07 AM



I have just upgraded to the latest version of RootsMagic.  I have created a new tree using TreeShare.  I notice that the list of light bulb web hints includes census I have already used and is part of my records, is there a way of having these already used hints or records not show?  Also I would like to turn off hints from family trees.  Is there a way of turning them off?




Should this file backup be saving under a new name?

I upgraded my RootsMagic to the newest version.  I uploaded my Rootsmagic tree to ancestry when I started TreeShare and gave it the name Sandra's ancestors.  I noticed, when working in Rootsmagic the file saved,on my hard drive under its old name. However, it does exist at Ancestry under this new name.  Is this working properly?  If not, is there a way to fix thi,s or do I have to start over?  If I have to start over, how do I do so?

Auto Match

Hello Customer Service Representative:
I thought a real time saver for people using auto match.  After a person working in Roots has auto matched their family, and there are still people left over, who have not received the blue family tree matched up symbol, it would be great to do the auto match again with the advanced setting chosen for all of them at the same time.

Hello Customer Service Representative"


When I am doing research on my ancestors, I would find it helpful to have mother and father closer to the persons name because I find this more important, then the years and places they were born when deciding on a match.  Perhaps they could be moved there permanently along with the web hints light bulb?



Light bulb or Hints Location

I love my Roots Magic!  One of the few improvements I would make is o move the light bulbs or hints suggestion bar to the far left so you see that then the number of the person there.  Just so it is easier to say where further work needs to be done.
