I see the same thing and agree it's related to TreeShare somehow.

That's nice, but it doesn't address the core issue with the core process of TreeShare is an order of magnitude too labor intensive.

I don't believe you're going to like this answer, but what I did was I created a fresh database in RM and loaded it with TreeShare. I then merged my other RM database (created from a GEDCOM from MyHeritage) into that Treeshare enable database, merged as many as possible doing RM duplicate/merge, then started the process of syncing those changes back to Ancestry using TreeShare.


I started in July, as of now I'm almost through the H's.

In Topic: Workflow/Process to synchronize Ancestry.com, RM7, MyHeritage

While I liked the MyHeritage data, and I like their consistency checker. That said, I'm in the process of getting off of MyHeritage because their support is abysmal. 


What I did was create a new RM database, pulled all the data from Ancestry into it via TreeShare, then I pulled all my data from MyHeritage via GEDCOM and merged it into RM. I probably have a couple more months of clicking before I can get all the data synced with Ancestry.



So first off in your situation I would simply create a fresh database in RM, pull all your Ancestry data into it, and do your remaining updates in RM and use TreeShare to sync them to Ancestry. I'd use your MyHeritage subscription only for searching and validation and manually pull data into RM. Sync and Merge is MyHeritage is the worst.


So get all your data into RM, use the MyHeritage consistency checker to point out errors and fix them IN RM. Delete your tree on MyHeritage and refresh it with a fresh GEDCOM from RM.

In Topic: CSV Import - easiest way?

I just noticed Reunion on the Mac has the capability to map fields in a CSV to fields and event types, so if you're a Mac user you could pull them in to a blank file, merge them, and export as GEDCOM to RootsMagic.


Gramps is free, but uses a fixed format.


I don't use Reunion for much anymore, but I find it's book generator nicer than RootsMagic and when I need to key some book info in to create a GEDCOM it's faster.
