I recently inherited a large PAF file from my grandfather that he never synced with FS, though my mom and some others were doing in FS and both are correct in different ways.

I just bought RM and now I could use some suggestions on the best way to go about merging and synchronizing the two. Recommendations?

I found the functionality to import from FS but I'm guessing it would be better to start from the PAF file as it is much comprehensive than what is present in FS.

Thank you for your suggestions.

PS: I found the link to the FS related RM videos which I'll be watching shortly.

I created a custom fact to keep track of the status of my work with them on FamilySearch. Here's a link to an earlier discussion if you want to see this method. It's especially help with tracking LDS Ordinances.
