I want to start a new database for a different branch of my family. Is there some way to copy my current sources to the new database?

Thanks

I;m using RM5. When I click on File ----> Import I get a popup window that says "File From Another Program" with a menu of old RM versions and other genealogy programs. I don't see File > Import Lists.

That 'new' feature was added with the release of RootsMagic 7. See: https://www.rootsmagic.com/RootsMagic/WhatsNew.aspx

In RM5 you will need to use drag n drop. Attach all the sources to a person in the database and then drag n drop that person to the new database.

Thanks everyone for your responses. I guess I am finally motivated to move to RM 7.
