My only real interest in this is that it will allow me to sync my RootsMagic database with an Ancestry tree, while maintaining my RM database as the source of all truth.

I don't care where my source material comes from!

You do know that if you upload images to Ancestry and you have obtained them from another source then it is likely those images are subject to copyright and you should get permission, preferably in writing, to do so

Yes, I do know that. I am a copyright advisor in my daily life.

I'm interested far more in sharing facts and sources than commodity scanned images.

Also - hopefully RM will permit users to include or exclude attached media from a future Ancestry tree sync, as they already do when publishing to myrootsmagic.com

Hi pstainthorp,

I'm interested to know how you've gone in using roots magic and it's connection with Ancestry.com - are you still using it? Why/why not?

Much thanks
