Help needed. My family tree was created in Family Tree Legends and needs importing into...

05 May 2016 - 06:03 PM

Excuse me if this is the wrong forum, but as a new member would ask the moderator to put it into the correct forum.
This is Not a bug or Issue with Roots Magic, but how to import into Roots an ftl file.

My problem is this, my laptop failed and my new one is Windows 10 and the Family Tree Legend software is not compatible with Windows 10, therefore I can no longer open my Family Tree.

Fortunately I have a backup of my tree which as many of you know has the file extension .ftl but as I cannot use the Family Tree Legends software I am unable to export it into a format compatible with Roots Magic, I am stuck and really do not want to completely start all over again.

Therefore I wonder if any kind person has Family Tree Legends and would be willing to use a copy of the backup of my tree that I could provide and put it into a file format compatible with Roots.
I am not too sure but guess possibly a gedcom format, but I honestly don't know and leave it to expertese.

Just to confirm my Operating system is Windows 10, and I have Roots Magic Essentials version 7, which is the Free Version.

I would be extremely grateful if someone could help me with this.

Many thanks
