Ancestry Tree Upload from RootsMagic: “Other Sources”
Why Multiple copies of the same citation in the “Other Sources” list on Ancestry?
“Other Sources” is a list of citations and the facts they belong to. You can link each citation to a single fact. RootsMagic also allows you to add a citation to the person.
What are the “Notes” that I see in the “Other Sources” list on Ancestry?
RootsMagic and Ancestry each have features that the other does not have, yet they can work together to preserve data. RootsMagic allows you to add a note to each fact but Ancestry only allows a note for the person.
You can have a citation that is not link to a source on Ancestry. Therefore, when you upload a file from RootsMagic to a new tree on Ancestry, the fact notes comes into the “Other Sources” section as citations without sources.
The citation heading will show it is a “note” for a fact. When you download from Ancestry to RootsMagic, they will add into RootsMagic as fact notes.
