GEDCOM import to FTM loses sources on notes
Posted by: Bill deverell (ID *****8796) Date: August 03, 2006 at 04:07:43

Has anybody found a way round this problem.

I am using Generations 8.5a having migrated from GGS UK edition.

I use Misc Notes, Census and Will Transcript notes a lot and usually assign sources to the information.
Only the first note imports to FTM as a note and loses its source. Subsequent notes eg Census get converted to Facts containing eg @N1@ - not much help.

Also some of my facts have sources defined in the UK version of Generations such as Birth Certificate which have fields not recognised by FTM and generate a blank source called TITLE with comment TYPE Birth Certificate but no other fields!

I am beginning to think there is no way of transferring my data to FTM or even TMG as Generations handling of Notes and Sources appears to be unique. It also means I can't generate useable GEDCOM files for other people.

Bill
