RM7 can import your RM3 database and write a GEDCOM. You can download the free (limited) version to do this from http://www.rootsmagi...Try/RootsMagic/


When writing the GEDCOM just be aware that there are RM specific items that could be written out. You need to decide if you want them or not and make the appropriate selection when creating the GEDCOM.

In Topic: Changing spouse order

14 October 2018 - 12:32 PM

Rearrange spouses doesn't seem to have any effect. It doesn't change the order in the family list and the Gedcom output appears to list the earliest family entered rather than by marriage or sort date. There may be a bug.

I find the same problem with Search>Family search. I have them arranged properly in the Descendants view and they are reversed in the Search>Family View and the second spouse has a higher RIN than the first but the second spouse appears first. Additionally, a son by the same name appears in between. There appears to be a sort error.
