PLEASE CAN SOMEONE HELP. I am using Generations Family Tree Starter Kit Version 8.0 UK.
It is a Sierra Product and I need help, I have been using this program for 3 years now and have over 3,000 names and I am starting to have problems with this program, I have contacted to suppliers but the program was taken over by another company and they suggested I post my question on the Genforum message board as other users of the program may be able to help.
When you go into the family card to add a child or spouse, the part where you enter the name does not save correctly (for example) if the family surname is Reilly and you want to add a child and press save it wipes out the surname, or you try to put in christian name it wipes out the surname.
It is also not saving the birth and death dates etc (for example) you put in the birth date and then click on where the person was born it deletes the birth date.
I have put many hours into this family tree and dont want to have to start over again with a new program, I have tried rebooting the program but this did not work. I need help in correcting this problem. PLEASE HELP:
Yours Faithfully
