Thank you both for those tips. I think I'm just going to lay off the link option for now and I just watched the video that was so informative.  I was able to remove an unknown spouse that was causing a duplication of the same RIN person and the original issue with one parent having the same RIN and the spouse with a different RIN...just required a merge of the separate RINs which cleared it up altogether. I'll have to bookmark the video page!  Thanks again!

I was trying to find a link example from my Treeshare screen but couldn't find one.  Basically what happens is it gives me the option to link an individual either from Ancestry to RM or from RM to Ancestry, so that the person is listed twice with the link option to each platform.  I understand how to perform updates, but I just don't understand what it means to link a person from one platform to the other.

I did as you suggested and turned on RIN display.  The father has the same number, but the mother's is different.  I'm guess I'm not quite understanding the process of "linking" people using Treeshare.  For example, inside Treeshare I may be presented with an option to update a persons sources or other fact changes.  I update them and the person shows up again on tree share twice..once for updating to Ancestry and one to update from Ancestry.  When this happens, I've used the link feature. I don't think I've completed too many links so hopefully it won't be a massive clean up.  Can you provide a link or point me to where I can get a better understanding of the various options, including linking, inside Treeshare?  How do I correct this mess I've made? :unsure:

And as to direction...it's coming from Ancestry.  I never upload to them.
