Sharing Living Flag with Ancestry

25 April 2019 - 03:14 AM

Through the excellent reports in RM I found a number of individuals with the wrong Living Flag in both directions, i.e. shown as living when they are dead and shown as not living when they are living.


I have corrected these in RM but there does not appear to be any method of changing the status of that individual on Ancestry using TreeShare. Obviously the flag appears in RM when it is downloaded from Ancestry so it must be in the API but is there any reason why it cannot be updated, or am I missing something?



Ancestry MyTreeTags

If Ancestry can provide it with their API it would be nice if the MyTreeTags could be shared (two-way) with Ancestry TreeShare.


For example, create a group called Military and then share that as a custom tag with TreeShare. Or just do it manually, i.e. create a tag in RM and let that be shared with Ancestry.


Similarly let TreeShare put any tags which are in Ancestry into RM.

Difference in Number of People

If I do Tools, Count Trees then then number of individuals shown is 1 more than if I do a Reports, Lists, Statistics List. The database uses TreeShare with Ancestry and the Statistics Report number is the same as shown in Ancestry.


Does anyone have any tips to find that missing person or know why the numbers are different?



Color of Webhints

The current color of webhints (yellow) can be difficult to see under certain lighting conditions. Is it possible to allow the user to change that setting to a color that is easier to see?

Adaptive Treeview for version 9?

14 May 2018 - 05:20 PM

I know that RootsMagic does not have a tree view, I assume that is because it can be difficult to manoeuvre around it and it is easy to get lost. Certainly that is my experience with the Ancestry version. However, I do find it a bit annoying that there is no real Tree type view in RootsMagic. Obviously family and descendant view go some way to make-up for the lack of that feature.


Perhaps for version 9 (i.e. the version after the next major release) the development team might like to examine the principles used in zoompast.com which changes detail as you zoom in and out. Just a thought.
