Converting from Family Origins to RootsMagic

 

1. Do "File > Search for files" from the RootsMagic menu.

2. Then change from "RootsMagic files" to "Family Origins files" and click "Begin searching". RM will list all Family Origins databases on your hard drive.

3. Highlight the one you want and click "Open".

4. RM will then ask you to enter a name for the RootsMagic database you are creating and will import the Family Origins data into it.

 

RootsMagic 4 (and later versions) will only import a Family Origins (version 4 or later) database file. 

We no longer provide conversion services on Family Origins version 1-3 files. We do provide tools for you to convert the files yourself at the link below.

Family Origins version 1-3 Conversion Tools

 

We no longer provides conversion services on Family Origins version 1-3 files. This is because, none of our computers will run the old Family Origins conversion tools anymore.

If you want to try using the conversion tools on an older computer, we have uploaded a zip file with the conversion tools at: http://www.rootsmagi...onvertTools.zip

These are DOS programs (and an old 16 bit Windows 3.1 program) we wrote years ago.

There is a readme.txt file included in the zip, it has minimal info about how to use these tools. You will need to unzip these files into a folder on your computer in order to read the readme file. Since we have no computer to run these tools we can not write up complete steps for the process. You will need some pretty good computers skills in order to use these tools.

You can email us at convert@rootsmagic.com with any questions you may have about the programs in these files. We will update the readme file base on your question so it will help others.

Save it as a Text file.  Then create a new, blank spreadsheet and open the .txt file - it should recognize it as a comma-separated file and ask you to verify the delimiters.
