After upgrading from version 5 to version 6 to a new computer, all the Data from my Residence fields is gone. Any input as to how to fix this would be appreciated. It is all still there on my old machine which is running version 5.

just open the RM5 database with RM6 and let it convert it for you.
If you want to keep RM5 as well, restore the last RM5 backup with RM6, keep the different version's files in their own folders.

Which Residence field isn't populating? Is the field itself not showing on the Edit person screen?

If the field is not showing on the Edit person screen, lo to Lists, Fact type list and make sure the Date, Place and Description fields are checked.

If the fields were checked in RM 5 and are not in RM 6, the entries will be in the database but not show on the Edit person screen.
