My question is in regards to the migration from NFS to FT and how RootsMagic 6 will assist in this migration. I want to know this information so that I know how I can best complete my family history work in the proper manner. Family Tree seems to be a massive enhancement of NFS, but the more I research what it will allow individuals to do the more I understand that currently RM 6 is not in a position to help me with a bridge between the two databases. I understand that FS has recently released the API to RM and other 3rd parties, and that the magicians are working hard to bring all the information together, but I do have a few questions.
- What features will be included?
- From my research of Family Tree it seems that you will have the ability to do a great deal of collaboration. In order for all of this to take place a significant change in how information is presented was made. I was wondering how RM 6 will handle all of these changes?
Will individuals be able to merge individuals in the FT?
Will individuals be able to import and export sources to FT from RM 6?
I can see that adding and changing information allows for you to justify your change, will RM 6 allow for this extra documentation with FM? (Pg 55)
Will individuals be able to select the correct template in FT for entering names in a different language? (Pg 57)
- Will RM 6 have ALL the functionality of NFS Family Tree in order to continue in progression of our family databases?
Thank you for your help and I look forward to hearing what everyone has to say.
