Surnames: Whitmore and varied ancestors
My issue is different, but connected. I only use the standard form of surname and recently discovered (after synching my Family Tree Maker with Ancestry)a few people with all uppercase surnames have been added to my tree. They are so distantly related I would not have included them, so I don't want them downloaded. Additionally, I have a much more serious problem. The synching resulted in multiplication of entries of both People and Sources. Each duplication is by eight. I had to merge more than 200 instances in the People list and now go through every single one of 1,300 Sources and Citations to merge -- they too are merged eight to 16 times and must be individually merged! I've had to create new trees both on Ancestry and Faily Tree Maker. What's happening during the synch process Ancestry?! I'm so annoyed I don't want to synch ever again.
