In Topic: Have RM4 can I d/l trial?

17 September 2014 - 09:16 AM

A backup of the database with RM4 will be saved for RM4 so if RM6 updates the esisting RM4 database, you will s have the RM4 backup.

If you do upfate the RM4 database to RM6, CHANGE IT'S NAME so you can keep them straight.

In Topic: Shortcomings with Preserve record numbers

It has always been true of non RM GEDCOMs.


There was a workaround that worked for some programs where we changed the name of the source of the GEDCOM to RootsMagic, but that would only work if the creating program used the record numbers as the GEDCOM numbers.

First, for the citations: I don't want to print a list of all my citations. I'd like to know if there is a way to go to a citation / source and "know" which people in the database have are using that source. For example, I have an index of Whaling Masters, and several of my ancestors are listed in this book... and they have different surnames. I'm trying to find out if I can go to the Whaling book source and see who is attached to that source. Does this make sense? I have a contingency plan if RootsMagic cannot do this.
I think this should do it.
go to the lists, Source list, Highlight the source and choose print, check the options, especially Citation Details

You can do an individual report of selected people, select by data fields, date last edited is after ???.
