In Topic: RM7 Sources not uploaded to TreeSearch

07 October 2019 - 09:13 PM

Sources in RM do seem to transfer okay for new people added to Ancestry via Treeshare. However, sources do not transfer for people already in the Ancestry database. Deselecting the "Only show changed people" box in Treeshare and trying to update a source that did not transfer in the past is unsuccessful. Sources that didn't transfer the first time still do not transfer.

In Topic: RM7 Sources not uploaded to TreeSearch

I don't see that this problem has been addressed. I have many instances where a source that is added to RM does not transfer to Ancestry via Treeshare. Sometimes sources transfer, other times they don't. I just added a source to a marriage fact that doesn't show up in Ancestry for either husband or wife. Comparing the RM and Ancestry records with treeshare shows the source present in RM but not in Ancestry. Checking the marriage box next to RM, updating the source, and trying treeshare a second time still results in no change on Ancestry. Comparinf RM & Ancestry for all records shows that hundreds of sources are not transferred. I spend a lot of time trying to add sources to facts, but many of them are not showing up on Ancestry. Very frustrating.

In Topic: Change Fact to a Different Person w/o retyping all

I would support implementing this in RM8. On more than one occasion I have attached a fact to a person, added sources, added a note and attached media, only to later find I attached it to the wrong person! A simple option to "attach this fact to a different person" would save a lot of re-typing and re-attaching. A "copy fact" option would be okay, as long as the note, sources, shared persons and media all accompany the copied fact. Thanks for considering this.
