#89550 Unable to sign into Ancestry RM 7.5.6.0

Posted by larrewl on 06 June 2018 - 05:51 AM in Issues

I use Backblaze to backup my whole computer.  I paused the backup for two hours, restarted my laptop, opened an existing database, ran all database tools in order, then tried to sign in to Ancestry using TreeShare. Nothing happens to the TreeShare window but the RM Index in the background starts to flash in about 1/2 second intervals as if it's trying to process individuals. RM freeze up at that time.
 Before I was unable to sign in using TreeShare, I occasionally would have RM freeze up, with multiple SQLite Error mini-windows popping up. I'm wondering if RM is rewriting my database files on disk for each changed person.




#89536 Unable to sign into Ancestry RM 7.5.6.0

Posted by larrewl on 04 June 2018 - 12:42 PM in Issues

I am currently unable to sign into Ancestry using RM 7.5.6.0.  With my existing databases (500-1000 persons), I get "SQLite Error 1 - SqlDatabse: Cannot perform this operation on a closed database."

When I create a new empty database, the TreeShare window just stays open.  When I cancel pending operations, I don't see any new data.

Any help is greatly appreciated. :)




#86824 Workflow/Process to synchronize Ancestry.com, RM7, MyHeritage

Posted by larrewl on 14 November 2017 - 12:25 PM in Discussion

You can use TreeShare for Ancestry to keep your Ancestry tree current. You can use that same database to make changes on FamilySearch Family Tree. MyHeritage does not have an API that allows you to make changes to their website through RootsMagic. So MyHeritage will be the harder one to maintain. I would start with Ancestry, FamilySearch and then upload new GEDCOMs to MyHeritage to keep that current.

I know about using TreeShare for Ancestry.  What is the fastest way to make changes to my FamilySearch family tree using RM7?




#86816 Workflow/Process to synchronize Ancestry.com, RM7, MyHeritage

Posted by larrewl on 13 November 2017 - 06:30 PM in Discussion

About six months ago, I stopped using Family Tree Maker 2014 as my database program yet continued to update my family tree at Ancestry.com (World Subscription). I bought RM7 earlier this year with the plan to use it as my primary database program.  I recently bought a complete annual MyHeritage subscription and started my complete family tree by importing a GEDCOM. Its family tree consistency checker has identified 328 consistency issues (e.g., child older than parent, died too old).  Ancestry.com has about 500 of my 2000 media (photos, docs, etc)
What would you suggest as a smart (minimum total time) process for synchronizing family history data on Ancestry, RM7 and MyHeritage?  I'd like to have a complete RM7 database with all media and all the non-media family history data at Ancestry and MyHeritage by the end of 2018.  I also have an incomplete family tree at FamilySearch that I'd like to update next year.  (Just so others have more complete accurate data from FamilySearch).  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
I also welcome note sync and custom fact/field naming convention suggestions. :)
