Find A Grave

How are RM users capturing and recording Find A Grave ID#s? Are you just adding the # as a Fact?

FamilySearch Auto Match Not Working

15 August 2019 - 09:10 AM

I just imported, using a GEDCOM file, my data from Legacy Family Tree. Each 2,450 ancestors were linked to FamilySearch in Legacy and they each had a valid FS ID#. After the import, I opened up the RM7 FamilySearch Central feature and there were no matches. I ran the AutoMatch tool and only got 1,868 matches out of the 2,450. I reviewed my imported RM data. Persons that are showing up in the Not Matched list do have FS ID#s listed as a Fact. So it actually appears the FS ID# data did import but for some reason, RM did not locate these individuals when attempting to link them to FS. I just tried matching an unmatched ancestor using the FS ID# and it matched up just fine. Why didn't RM find the match in FS?


Importing Life Sketches & Find A Grave ID#s

14 August 2019 - 03:13 PM

I know I have approached this subject awhile back but I am hoping maybe something has changed. I want to import my Legacy Family Tree data into RM7 so I can us RM7 full time. My Legacy data file includes stories (Legacy calls them "Stories" and they have a dedicated icon for them) and Legacy has a data field that captures Find A Grave ID#s. I have created a GEDCOM 5.5 file from Legacy with the boxes for "Export stories as events" and "Export all other ID#s" as events. RM won't import these data points using the GEDCOM file. I also tried the RM "Import from a Legacy file" process with still no success. I have a lot of data I will lose when I switch to RM. Any ideas?

LDS Ordinance Report

14 February 2019 - 08:03 PM

I would like to generate and print the LDS Missing ordinance Report, but only for a specific group of ancestors. I have created a direct line ancestor group, but I don't see how I can run the report on just this group of people.

Pedigree View - Arrange Name

Is there a simple way I can tell RM7 to show my ancestor names with last name first, then first name? Currently it shows first name then last name.
