Topics I've Started

Using PDFs as Sources

06 August 2017 - 02:49 PM

Hi

I'm in the process of preparing my RM7.5 file to be used stand alone to pass onto my niece. I've synced with Ancestry but I'm having trouble with the media. One relative died in Colorado in 1908 and left a will. The event shows correctly in RM and shows one source but it only shows the first page of the probate as the media. I downloaded the 124 jpgs of the probate and combined them into a PDF which I added as a file media item. The PDF does not show up as a thumbnail, only in the list and when I click on the PDF file or View/Edit the file does not display.

I don't use Adobe PDF, I use Foxit, could this be what's causing the PDFs not to display?

 

 

Cheers

TreeShare Problem

10 July 2017 - 02:30 PM

Hi
I hope that you can understand the problem I have found in RM (7.5.0.0 - 27 Jun 2017). You will need the 4 gifs to be found at https://my.pcloud.co...mDpMjQRGLqfyFX0( let me know if you can get them)
 
When comparing trees in TreeShare I have come across several people who have duplicate census entries. as an example I have one person who shows as
TreeShare Problem _2017_07_10_1.gif 
    RootsMagic 
        - 2 copies of the 1881 census together 
    Ancestry
        - 2 copies of the 1881 census together 
        - 1 copy separate from the others
 
TreeShare Problem _2017_07_10_2.gif 
    RootMagic
        Clicking on lower 1881 census and selecting Delete event from Rootsmagic has the desired effect and the item is marked for deletion
 
TreeShare Problem _2017_07_10_3.gif
    Ancestry
        Clicking on first box for 1881 census and selecting 'Delete event from Ancestry' results in top two 1881 items being selected (in my opinion incorrect) - Accepting this results in both records being deleted from Ancestry
        If all 1881 records are removed from Ancestry and one of the RM 1881 records is selected and Add Add new event to Ancestry is chosen then BOTH the 1881 records in RM are selected. 
 
TreeShare Problem _2017_07_10_4.gif
    Ancestry
        Clicking on lower box for 1881 census has the desired effect of marking that record for deletion.
        If this option is applied and this record is deleted then it makes no difference to problem illustrated on TreeShare Problem _2017_07_10_3.gif - select one selects both

Current problems with Ancestry API

10 July 2017 - 01:23 PM

Hi

Just a heads up , when I open TreeShare I get a message saying that there are currently problems with  the Ancestry API and they may be encountered throughout the weekend. The weekend!! this is Monday  :-) anyway r=the only thing that appears wrong is that the 'Only show changed people' filter doesn't work, therefore you have to scroll though till you see different colours in the RM & Ancestry boxes. Updates appear to work OK.
