I loaded the Plus version of the Generations Family Tree in my computer with my 4.2 still existing to see if it would work.
Everything worked fine. I converted my file from 4.2 to the Plus with no problems in the operations. I lost no information at all. The only problem I have run into is on my old 4.2 I had a military field under the persons birth/death location on the main screen. This information was moved to one of the note fields on the Plus version. I tried deleting the education field & making a military field on the new version but ended up with my military information under a field called medical that I have not as yet been able to fix. I am still working & do thank you for the information on your home page it gave me the nerve to try to load these 2 programs side by side & convert my 30000 people to this new Plus version. I am not going to say I like the new version because I loved my old 4.2 setup with no problems over all these yrs.
What I am doing with this data base is just storing information & do not use all the fancy bells & whistles that are built into the newer programs. I will just have to use this till I can find a program that works better. There will never be one as good as the old Generations.
Thanks
