GEDCOM Import From Legacy Family Tree

03 June 2018 - 02:47 PM

I just created a GEDCOM file from Legacy Family Tree and used the file as an import to RM7. A perfect import until it came time to use the FamilySearch tool in RM7. There was not a single match of the 2080 names between my new RM7 database and FamilySearch. Why wouldn't all of the names have a match? They are all matched to FamilySearch in my Legacy database? Even after running the RM AutoMatch procedure, there were still over 400 unmatched names.


Importing From Legacy

15 April 2018 - 08:55 PM

I just tried to import my Legacy Family Tree data into Personal Historian 3. I first told PH3 that I am the primary person for the history. I get the following error when I choose to import from Legacy: "No value given for one or more required parameters." Then when I click on OK, I get a window that says "Who is this history about. There are no individuals in this file".





Import Legacy Stories Into RM7

12 March 2018 - 03:22 PM

I had an issue a few months back trying to import Legacy Stories into my RM7 database. The solution was given below:


Did you use a GEDCOM when transferring your Legacy 9 file to RootsMagic? If so, the first dialog (File > Export > GEDOCM file) includes a check box (Export Stories as Events) at the bottom of the GEDCOM Export dialog that should help you export your stories to RootsMagic.


This worked for awhile, but now when I try to import Legacy data, using the GEDCOM export from Legacy and checking the box, I am not seeing the stories as Facts in RM. Did something change? How can I get my Legacy Stories into RM?



Publish A Narrative Book - Questions

26 November 2017 - 05:03 PM

Hello RM Supporters,

Here are a few questions I have when publishing a narrative book of my ancestors:

  1. When including pictures of the ancestor, why is there no caption below the picture. I did confirm the saved picture in the RM Media Gallery has a caption. Is it because it might be redundant as the picture is inserted right next to the ancestors name in the narrative?
  2. Why does the book only list parents, grandparents, etc? Is there a way to have the book include children, aunts, uncle, etc? They are all ancestors or would including "everybody" create a monster book?


Ordnance Data Not Synced

15 October 2017 - 02:29 PM

I am importing my data from Legacy Family Tree. I had issues regarding the importing of Legacy Stories, so as recommended by this forum I exported Legacy data to a GEDCOM file and them imported into RM, which turned the Legacy Stories into Facts (yeah). I'm finding that this process of importing creates some LDS ordnance status in RM to show as "Not in File", even though the data does appear in the FS side of the FS tool in RM. I tested importing the Legacy data using the RM feature of importing directly from the Legacy data file. This process does capture the correct ordinance status, but not my Legacy Stories. Rock and hard place. I really want to keep my stories and the GEDCOM import process. Is there a batch process I can use to update my LDS ordnance status in RM based on the FS data being displayed?

I hope this makes sense.
