Difficulty uploading old data
I have uploaded about 2500 checklists from AviSys, dating back to the mid-1980s, to complete my records in eBird. The most time-consuming part was fixing the many locations to conform with eBird protocols. Now I am trying to do the same for my wife's records, which overlap substantially with mine but also depart very frequently. My question is: How can I use the conversions from my records to apply to hers as well? For example, suppose I have checklists at Chincoteague NWR. Once I confirm the location in my account, eBird remembers it and will convert other records in the same way. But when I log into her account, eBird does not automatically transfer the information, and it looks as if I will have to start all over. Is there a way around the problem?
