In Topic: Help - Dates not matching between RootsMagic and FamilySearch Tree

06 March 2018 - 05:30 PM

Hi Renee, thanks for commenting.


I do understand RM is by now only available in English (and that is said). But I believe it would not be a great change to allow dates to be recognized base on the windows system used.


Family Historian does that somehow. They are also only in English by now (also said). But they can work with any date format. 


Maybe RM could import the standard date in English from Family Search Tree instead of the recorded date. I do not know.. something to think about...


Well, some correction must take please in the future. It is very time consuming to keep changing every date I entered and import or export to FS...

Thanks Renne,


I have changed all facts in FH again prior to creating the GEDCOM...

Now I am using CHR.

In Portuguese, we do not have a difference between Christen and Baptism.

It is always Baptism, as a child or adult...

Maybe the best would be to start using CHR...

Hi Renee,


Thanks for sharing your explanation.


"Christen" is for sure very awkward for us here in Brazil. We always refer to this event as a baptism, or "batismo" / "batizado" in portuguese.


I might have hundreds of "BAPM" tags on my GEDCOM I have imported to Rootsmagic. Is there any automated process inside Rootsmagic to "change" all my BAPM to CHR so that family search align it correctly?

All my GEDCOM data uses Baptism, since this is the religious name used on the Catholic and Lutheran Churches...
