I would be glad to convert these to a GEDCOM for you.  Send to dking9880@aol.com

 


Thanks so much. I am told RM will read the data files, but not the old backup files older than version 5. These files are so small it would be easy to make both a GEDCOM and a data file.

Thanks again,
Rick

FOB is the extension that Family Origins 4 used for it's backups.

As far as I know, Family Origins 4 is the only version that can restore them.

It does seem that I once found an old utility program which would decompress the, but I don't remember the name of it.

Your best bet is to wait a while and someone with a copy of FOW 4 will probably volunteer to expand them for you. Once the files are expanded, you cna open them with any FOW program, version 5 or later, or even import them into RootsMagic 3.0.x.
