Topics I've Started

Groups: Collateral Lines Select everyone

22 November 2017 - 01:09 PM

I have a separate group for each of my (4) grandparents. Each group contains the grandparent, all their ancestors and all their cousins. Until recently all I needed to do to update each group was to select the individual grandparent, then do the following actions:


Mark Group

Ancestors of highlighted person

Ancestors and all collateral lines


Then press OK


In two of the grandparents' groups by doing the above everyone in the database becomes selected, but the other two groups work fine.


I have done the four database tools tests (this has happened in the past and I found that rebuilding the index cleared it).


The problem occurs on another computer. So obviously I have created a wrong link somewhere and I wonder if anyone has any tips as to how I can find where I have gone wrong.






Ancestry TreeShare Date Format

31 October 2017 - 04:18 PM

The conventional format for dates in Genealogy is dd mmm yyyy.


Whenever a change is made in RM and then uploaded to Ancestry the date is overwritten in the format d mmmm yyyy, i.e. the month spelt out in full. Could TreeShare use the conventional format, or even allow the user to decide which format is uploaded to Ancestry?

Places and Ancestry TreeShare

One of the benefits of using RM is that you can change the place and location spelling and details for all entries for that place or location.


I am finding that changing the places and locations does not change the status of that individual to 'changed'. Even an individual edit in RM does not change it to 'changed'.


Therefore, the only way to push that change back to the Ancestry tree is to clear the 'only show changed people' and find and highlight each affected individual in TreeShare. Finding those changes is very time consuming.


Can TreeShare be altered to mark every changed individual to 'changed' regardless as to where in RM the change is made?

Keyboard shortcuts and toolbar

Where possible could keyboard shortcuts be provided for new features? By that I mean where a menu letter is underlined that can be used with the alt key.


For example there is no direct shortcut for color coding. Similarly there are obvious shortcuts in TreeShare for Ancestry function.


Also could as many commands as possible be able to be put as an icon on the toolbar?







Search Groups

Is there any reason why you cannot search within groups?


For example, I might want to search for individuals in the 'Main' or 'Other' groups and, say, whose date of birth is before a certain date.
