If you have several hundred names you are adding to RM5 and NFS at the same time and they have several children, I find it easier to 1st add the parents to Roots Magic, then to add the parents to NFS.

Then if they have several children, (My families usually have 6 or more), I add these children to the parents in New Family Search.

Then I open up Family Search Central in RM5, find one of the parents, click on ‘Share Data’ and click on all the children that need to be copied into RM5.

I was doing this the hard way before using Cut and Paste. Family Search Central is worth the price of RM5 just for that function.

There are still some problems in ‘Family Search Central’ but I’m sure they will be corrected in time.
