I’m one of those people who have a larger tree who is struggling with getting TreeShare to work on my laptop. (It works on my desktop.)
As an experiment I tried to separate off my FAN club research and see if I could get TreeShare to work with this smaller set of data.
Steps I followed:
Created a marked group containing the members of the FAN Club
Created a GedCom file from the marked group
Imported the GedCom file into RM8 on my laptop creating a new file called Crawford-Fan-Club.rmtree. This file has 2341 people in it.
Started TreeShare, logging into Ancestry
TreeShare did not give me the option to Upload a file. Instead it tried to connect to my existing tree. I reset TreeShare and tried again and it still tried to connect to my existing tree.
This raises several questions:
- Can I have several RM files that connect to one tree on Ancestry?
- Is there a way to split out a portion of a RM file and not have it retain the connection to the original Ancestry tree?
