Dear Michael,

HELP!!!

How can I successfully export my Generations 'EasyTree' 4.2 file into FTW version 11 when

I haven't paid attention to family ID#s or line labels other than the basic name, birth date, birth place, etc. I also have lots of reference notes in EasyTree 4.2 that don't seem to transfer over to FTW.

I tried to transfer my 26,000 member file to FTW and ended up with 26,000 induvidual entries without any families and none of the reference notes transfered. I'm working on my Norwegian family with 3rd cousins in the mid west who are using FTW. They are asking for a copy of my file and so far I'm unsuccessful.

If it's not possible to export my file could I send them a self extracting Zip file of the 4.2 Easytree program and a copy of my file?
