I will try this approach  :)

psinacio, for what purpose are you wanting to add empty death facts?  Would changing the Living flag to unchecked via an automated script achieve what you're wanting without the repercussions?

 

Romer, as long as I understand, FamilySearch tree requires it to define who is living or not. My understanding is that a living flag does not work for the sync purposes...


In Topic: How to handle German "von"

We face the same issue in Portuguese.

 

We have the "da", "do", "de" as a surname prefixe. It is never capitalized, as Rootsmagic insists it should. There is no "Da Silva"

 

And it is not the surname, "silva" is the surname.

 

I am adding them as a middle name. I do not like the approach, but it is the only option I found so far...

Vyger,

 

I have been using many genealogy solutions so far since 1996, started with Brother's Keeper, then changed to PAF, then to Family Tree Maker, then to FamilyHistorian (the best solution I have found) and I am now working with Roots Magic too.

I have decided to integrate my data with FamilySearch, and FH has not a sync solution so far.

That is why I have started migrating to RootsMagic.

 

I lost my father suddenly 3 years ago. He was also a genealogist. By his death a huge amount of information has been also lost.

My decision was I should put my research online to be accessible to others.

 

If FH decides to add a sync capability. I would certainly keep working with them...

Tom,

I think I will fall into the "wait and see" camp.  It's not the $30 so much as it is my time. I'd rather spend it on my research instead of working through a learning curve, and possible bug fixes, with RM8. Hoping for the best.

Rick

 

Thanks Tom
