Importing from a Text File
Posted by: Cynthia Lovely (ID *****5851) Date: August 16, 2003 at 14:15:35
  of 2216

Someone sent me some great information on one line I'm researching - about 200 pages worth! She sent it to me in a text file that looks pretty much like she ran a Register report from whatever software she's using. I've pasted a section below so you can see the format I'm dealing with. My question is, is there any way at all to import this information into Generations Family Tree; I think I have version 7? I'm so grateful for the information but don't want to input all of this one by one! Help!!!
