After installing RM6 with updates I chose to import a large database from PAF4 by clicking on that option. The process went quickly and apparently smoothly. As I began to check out the RM features I came to realize that only the Birth-Death-Buried events and associated sources were imported. Over the years I had made a point to create events, such as census in PAF, however none of these hundreds of events appears in RM6.  The list of 'facts' in RM closely matches 'events' in PAF.

  1. What can I do to import these data?
  2. Is there a menu to include/exclude tapes of data o import?
  3. Is there an error/omission report?
  4. Would creating a GEDCOM from PAF and importing that work any better?

Otherwise I'm impressed with RM features and flexibility.

Thanks for any help.

They should be importing. I would start first with the PAF database to see if it is somehow corrupt. I believe PAF has a compact or check/repair tool that you can run.
