I can't believe how many vendor defined tags FTM uses for events / facts that GEDCOM actually has a tag defined for already. And why they don't use the EVEN tag for the others like they're supposed to. Ancestry sure played fast and loose with the GEDCOM spec.
I'll look to see how much of that stuff we can bring in and put it where it is supposed to go.
Thanks, Bruce, for looking into this. I agree that FTM used too many event/facts and I don't use but a quarter of them. The ones I do use that don't transfer are easy to identify in FTM and change them to a Custom field, so I don't have a particular problem with them. That's exactly what I did with the Cause of Death field -- just made a custom field and transferred them all in one swoop. I can't see the need for RM to make all those fields, as it is so easy to fix that on the FTM side.
If an FTM user is having a problem figuring out how to do a global replace of a field into a custom field, just let me know and I'll guide you through. Just thought I'd let everyone know initially that they may have fields that don't transfer, so they don't get caught later wondering where the info went.
Thanks again, Bruce!
