In Topic: Events and sources dropped when importing from PAF

11 July 2017 - 11:27 AM

Update:
  Created a sample GEDCOM from PAF4; imported that into RM6 with almost all events/facts included. The PAF to GEDCOM converter has its own peculiarities, so some data (specific dates for some events, mostly) dropped out in that stage; they were noted in a .lst file. RM did take everything in the GEDCOM, but using the .lst report to attach the dropped dates to the right people and events is a daunting prospect, though not nearly as much as entering everything.

Zhangrau, RobJ:

  Thanks for your quick responses.

  I did not create a new GEDCOM from PAF to avoid an extra step, since RM boasts of compatibility with PAF and includes PAF as a choice in the import menu. I guess I’ll create a small GEDCOM with a variety of events/facts and see if that will import completely.

  I did check both PAF and RM folders for any .lst or similar files – found nothing.

  I picked up RM6 for cheap via a clearance sale mentioned in a RM News a couple of months ago just to see if it was worth the effort to migrate my data to a more flexible and up-to-date program. If so I’d upgrade to the most recent version.

  Any progress or lack thereof will be posted here.
