RM5 Import

11 January 2012 - 03:57 PM


I appear to have aproblem with importing a gedcom file in to RM5.
Previously know problems with other editions.public/style_emoticons/default/sad.gif

Import to a new database.
Open up my main database as normal.
Open up new database.
Now two windows.
Transfer individuals from NEW to MAIN.
ALL ok.public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif

Open main next day.
Notice when closing the NEW database is open in background and is waiting to be backed-up.
OK back up and close both databases.

Next time open NEW still in background.
Open up NEW but... now this is good.
Opens up to two NEW databases and in the middle of them my MAIN database.

What have I done and how do I undo?


Internet Linking

20 December 2011 - 10:00 AM

does anyone know away to link a person to a url on the internet?

I do not mean Family Search etc but know source URL?
For example,
I want to link Thomas Rose 1820-1892 to a resource found on Ancerstry.co.uk. The url is http://trees.ancestr...ily/familygroup

What would be the best way todo?
It would be nice if I could just press a button paste in the URL and bob's your uncle (or not).

So every time I want to progress further, just hit the button and away we go :D.

Any ideas would help.

Roots Magic 5 To Go

17 December 2011 - 02:48 PM

Hi, when I update my Roots M5 data to Roots M5 TG it reports 'data is same size' but 'dates are older' every time I update?
I have run RM5 fron RM5TG and data is correct and upto date!
Any ideas?
