I am thinking about switching from The Master Genealogist to RootsMagic, and have been playing with a test database that I imported to RootsMagic from TMG. Does anyone know if the direct import tool does anything with the various flags that exist in TMG? (For example, flags answering the questions: Is the person a twin (or triplet), is he adopted, what was his birth order, how many generations is he from the starting person in the data base, etc.)
I see that RootsMagic has a Living flag, but I have not seen any others.
It seems clear that RootsMagic has not created additional flags to match those in my TMG database. Does this mean that all of the information contained in those flags has not been lost (as far as RootsMagis is concerned), or has it been retained as something other than a flag? If so, how can I access it?
If TMG flag information is not retained in the import process, does anyone know of a work-around that would allow this information to be imported into RootsMagic. For example, might it be possible to convert the flags into a facts before the import process and import the information that way?
