I posted the following under member trees for ancestry.com
and it was suggested that I post this here to see if anyone else had a suggestion for a different software to correct these issues I have instead of spending hour upon hours of trying to manual correct my database:
I had a problem syncing my local data in FTM 12 with my online data on ancestry.com.
Most of my updates have been done online, so I just wanted to have it all locally too.
It come back and gave me an error message just saying it could not be completed and to try again later. So I did, several times in fact but it was never successful. It suggested I unlink them or re upload.
Well come to find out.. that every time it errored off and I'd try again, it would upload data again and again and again!!!
Soo.. I have tons of duplicate people, media, and sources!!
Is there anyway to edit this data outside of FTM... It would be much faster and safer. Maybe using visual FoxPro or such.
