I'm using RootsMagic 4 on an old Macbook Pro, with Parallels and Windows 7. I have been having trouble getting into my RM database. What I want to do is buy a new Macbook (the current one has had several $1000-repairs), update my RM version 4 to something much newer and begin using RM for Mac, instead of the work-around with Windows 7 and Parallels.
My questions are:
1) What are the right steps to take? What do I do first, second, third, etc?
2) The last time I tried changing from a Dell computer with my RM4 to the Mac, it took me about six months, and I was able to do it only with help from this group. So I appreciate all the help I got then, and hope someone can walk me through the steps I need now. Can someone walk me through this? I'm no techie. I have 30 years worth of genealogical research in my RM database.
