Here's a new SQLite procedure that copies just about everything and then some for one or more named groups of people in one database to a new database, perfectly and completely and without duplication. That's something you don't get from drag'n'drop nor from Export/Import. And it's something that could be integrated in RootsMagic. See the page Groups - Extract most everything for one to a new database for the full meal deal.

 

Benefits
  • similar to other reasons to extract a subset of a database:
    • smaller, more manageable
    • for upload to a website
    • for sharing with someone
    • for a higher privacy level than for the master
  • perfect replication, unsullied by GEDCOM transformations
  • complete replication; includes related:
    • Tasks,
    • Research Logs,
    • Not a Problem List,
    • customised built-in Fact Type and Role sentences,
    • customised built-in Source Templates,
    • Addresses,
    • Repositories,
    • Correspondence,
    • File Settings,
    • Report Settings,
    • Custom Reports
    • TreeShare and FamilySearch connections
    • et al
  • copy multiple Groups (one by one) from the master to the target (provided the latter has not been edited) without duplication
  • script can be modified to expand or contract data to be copied
  • very fast
