Migrate from legacy Family Tree to RM7

06 August 2018 - 10:43 AM

I'm leaving Legacy and coming back to RM7. I'm really trying not to create a ton of data entry. I have asked some of these questions below in different posts but now I'm serious about getting this done and figured it would be more efficient if I asked all my questions here.

  • What is the most effective way to to do this? When using the "Import File From Another Program" do I use choose the "Legacy" option or the GECDOM option? Legacy has the ability to save as a GEDCOM 5.1 file. I have tried both processes and they seem to pull different data points. 
  • Is there an import process where I can grab Legacy's data points of FS ID#s, Find A Grave ID#s, and Stories? 
  • The last time I tried the import process about 1/3 of my 2,000 names were not linked to FamilySearch within RM7. Every name has a FS ID# from Legacy. I even tried the RM Auto Match feature but it still leaves me with 400+ unmatched names. If the FS ID# is in Legacy, why wouldn't all of my names be matched up in RM?

Unable to Sign In to FamilySearch

30 July 2018 - 01:35 PM

I am getting the error message "Invalid Login". Please make sure your login and password are correct".

My login and password ARE correct. I am able to sign into FamilySearch via my web browser and all is good. When trying to log in using RM7 FS tool I can't get in. The user name and password are the same. What's up? This has been going on for many days.

P.S. I must admit I can also successfully log in using the FS tool from within Legacy Family Tree using the same user name and password.

 


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?
