Baptism vs. Christening

11 September 2017 - 06:01 AM

Dear All,
I have just started using Roots magic. I have migrated my family tree from FH using GEDCOM and I am now trying to sync with my tree on FamilySearch.
I have used Automatch and selected the people to compare.
My ancestors have "Baptism" tags (BAPM) on GEDCOM/Rootsmagic, and Baptism infos on Family Search as well.
However, when synchronizing using Rootsmagic, the software is aligning "Chris" vs. "Baptism" for comparison and not Baptism vs. Baptism.
Any solution for this?

Syncing Sources and Media

07 June 2017 - 10:19 AM

Hello Everyone,


I am currently using Family Historian as my main software to organize my family genealogy.

I have started uploading my data to FamilySearch Family Tree, and I miss the ability to synchronize (compare) my research with the data stored at FamilySearch.


I have tried RootsMagic to see how it handles the sync process but I got confused.

Does it sync Media I stored at my computer up to FamilySearch?

Does it download Media from Family Tree? 

Sources? Do it handles that?


I have tried 20 generations and after waiting a lot I could not find any sources on my local database.

Is there any trick?


Thanks a lot!
