Data Import From Legacy Family Tree

16 November 2019 - 01:26 PM

I just successfully imported all my data from Legacy Family Tree, which I am leaving, to my RM7. Find A Grave ID#s and Stories from Legacy did import correctly. I am noticing that for LDS ordinance data in RM, RM did not import temple names/short names from Legacy, just blank names. Is this a RM or Legacy bug?


The Road to RM8 - An Important Update

16 November 2019 - 09:55 AM

Bruce's update and video review of RM8 basics on November 13 was awesome and timely. Thank you!

Will there be the same kind of high level review for the FamilySearch and LDS ordinance features of RM8 or will we just have to wait for the full release?


TreeShare on 2 Computers?

15 November 2019 - 12:31 PM

I have two Windows desktop PCs, both running RM7. If I upload a tree from RM to Ancestry from one PC, is it possible to have the other PC also share the same data with Ancestry if I am using the same data file? If so, is there a trick when setting up the TreeShare on the second PC?


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?
