Is there a way to synch RootsMagic 6 and Ancestry.com

Is there a way to synch RootsMagic 6 and Ancestry.com

I am brand new to RootsMagic combined with Ancestry.com. My roots magic database has a couple of thousand names over generations and I would love to somehow synch them with my family tree in Ancestry.com so I don't have to manually type them in. I would use Ancestry.com to find supporting source documents. Then I would want to synch back with the images and documents to Roots Magic 6. I am sure thousands know the best way to do this. But I am not one of them. Any help to be had?

Currently there isn't a way to sync data between RootsMagic and Ancestry (Ancestry hasn't provided API access to RootsMagic to allow this).

For now you would need to use GEDCOM files to move data back and forth between RootsMagic and Ancestry.

Thanks! That is the clue I needed. Now I will go learn how to create and upload and download GEDCOM files.

I doubt they will ever allow API access. This would likely effect the sales of Family Tree Maker.
