Hi, I generally like Family Atlas, although I have submitted a bunch of feature suggestions. I hope to hear back from you on those. smile.gif

I just switched to a new comptuer. I have entered and validated a lot of personal places that don't match your database. I can see them when I view -> personal places on the old computer. They are not on the new computer. ohmy.gif What file can I move to do this?

It will be a *.FATL file.

On my XP machine they are stored in a Family Atlas folder in the RootsMagic Data folder.

Something like:
C:\Documents and Settings\User Name\My Documents\RM-Data\Family Atlas

Of course, I don't know what name you may have given your personal Places file, but it will have the 'fatl' extension.
