Importing Family Tree Maker Files

02 June 2009 - 08:07 AM

I have some old Family Tree Maker data files I want to import into RootsMagic 4.

I no longer have the FTM program installed as it was an old DOS version. I have downloaded the trial version of 4.0 and see that the program has a routine for other program files including FTM, but the file extension it looks for does not match with what I have. The extension I am dealing with is an .ftm not .ftw or .fbk as the program routine indicates, so consequently it does not recognize my existing files.

Since I can not create any other file types (GEDCOM) from the Family Tree Maker program, how can I convert these files to RootMagic? dry.gif
