Did anyone else encounter this? I downloaded my Ancestry.com tree into Roots Magic 6.0 and I have over 4000 date errors. Almost everyone in the tree was born in the 20th century now, which is not the case. I transferred the same gedcom into the iPad App and had no errors.  Customer support told me that I must have a corrupted gedcom.  This would make sense if the App version was also corrupted, but, it is not.  Is there a solution to this? Thanks in advance.

Please open a support ticket and send your GEDCOM and a backup of the database you created out of it. Note which people to look at. Then we can see what is going on.

I doubt that you transferred a GEDCOM into the RootsMagic iPad app - it has no support for GEDCOM. Did you transfer it successfully into some other iOS app?
