In Topic: merge multiple trees from multiple ancestry accounts

22 July 2017 - 04:32 PM

I see the new release is out and the feature list looks very impressive.

 

My problem (again) is that I have two Ancestry accounts, with multiple trees, and differences in metadata and a few errors among them.

 

With several hundred people it is a real bear to click, compare and merge through it all using the Ancestry.com web interface. I finally surrendered and left the trees up and my subscriptions expired.

 

So my hope is to buy this software and see it actually :

 

-Allow import and merge of trees from separate Ancestry accounts

-Allow upload of final tree to an Ancestry account

-Allow export of  the final tree to static HTML (might upload to a password protected area on my web server)

-Allow export of the final tree to many printable formats (for loved ones who need a hard copy)

 

The feature list looks promising, much of the language appears to support my needs.

Well it looks like FTM passed a restricted beta and is expanding TreeSync to a couple thousand more testers Monday, 19 JUN 2017.

 

Their notes specifically state that they do not use GEDCOM (presumably some sort of XML / XSLT code generation solution that's more compatible with databases).

 

According to some of the commentary, it handles media sync properly on all endpoints (multiple people / multiple computers) transparently.

 

Presumably the RM 7 team will act soon after FTM is stable. 

 

So the choo-choo is coming 'round the bend.

Hi Zhangrau,

 

Thank you for the message, I am wondering if there is any updated information on this?

 

From the FAQ it looks like Ancestry Sync is progressing and will be available for an update to RM 7 once testing is complete.

 

Thanks,

John
