I downloaded the beta software and uploaded my new database to Ancestry.com. This process only took a few minutes with pictures and documents finishing up in the background as I proceeded to make changes and additions to my file. After several changes I was able to successfully sync my software on my computer (the beta FTM) with my test tree on Ancestry.com.
This software upgrade will be a welcome change, but I'm not sure I will be upgrading my software right away. Although it is helpful to be able to make one change and have it populate both my online database and my computer database, I often use my computer FTM database to do speculative or assumption links to possible ancestors as I work through find sources to support my speculation. It is easier to make changes to this software than to Ancestry.com.
