1. Re: [RMagic] Opening a GEDCOM [1]
It seems we may have found something new as a shortcut. It seems that Alfred is right and wrong. For most programs opening a GEDCOM is garbish when just clicking open, but it is NOT true in one case. If you right click on the GEDCOM, use:"open with" PAF, FTM or RM it asks you for a new file name and will open successfully. HOWEVER, there will be a list file of those items not found in programs other than the one it was created from with some loss of data. Confused? Don't be..This can be a shortcut on imp
2. Re: [RMagic] No backup [1]
To clarify things. I also cannot create a shareable CD. I hit the "burn now" button and the indicator light for CD-RW stays ON and can't get disk out. It stays this way forever Is it possible the disk is filling up and all the data is not yet recorded? I have a large database - over 20,000 names. If this is the case, how do I transfer the entire database? Harry Wolfe [Original Message] > From: Sam Wonders > To:
3. Re: [RMagic] Define collateral lines [1]
John, The simple way to think of "Collateral lines" is the extended in-laws. They will be the extended family of someone who married into your family at any point in time.... Examples: If I choose to include Descendants and spouses of one of *my* ancestors, my *husband* will be included (as my spouse), but not his parents, siblings, grandparents, etc. If I include Descendants and collateral lines, my husband's parents, siblings, their spouses, grandparents, their siblings, etc. will be included.

8. Re: [RMagic] Searching for all given names in a line [1]
Hi Alfred - I am not able to get this to work for me...any thoughts? I have changed all to red, run search (FIND > Filed to Search = Color coding = Is red > then AND = given name = contains Kalli ) and I get "No match Found" If I leave off the "Given Name" search I still get "No match Found." I also tried using the criteria of "Sex > Equals > Male" with no luck. Ideally, I am looking for the first names of my male ancestors. Am I missing a step? Thanks - Kalli Alfred Eller wrote: > Color code yo

10. [RMagic] Database opens but no-one there! [1]
I sent this query a couple of days ago but had no replies, so I'm resending it with a new subject and slightly reworded. Can anyone reproduce this behaviour? So as to check out a problem that someone else had reported here, I closed my default file and created a new one. After doing the check I deleted this new file, but when I then tried to open my default database it came up with the correct name, but apparently completely empty. I also tried to restore it from a backup, with the same result. However, t
11. [RMagic] Copying a report [1]
I still don't understand why a report can't be generated directly into my word processor where I can copy or edit it then paste into an email directly without having to save it!!! I rarely want the same information a second time. I find it a real hassle the steps that must be taken to get a report, especially if I want to do some editing and the I have to find it again to delete. Doing some DNA work I am now wanting a limited one line ancestor or descendant report which I haven't been able to create.

13. Re: [RMagic] Creating GEDCOM [1]
You evidently have your computers association set so that it thinks a file with a "GED" extension should be opened in PAF. If you want to import it into RootsMagic, Open RootsMagic, go to the File menu, New, to create a new, empty database. Then go again to the File menu, select Import, GEDCOM file, browse to where you saved the GEDCOM file and import it. OR, if you know what is in it and you are positive you want to import it directly into your main database, just import it there. Alfred D. Eller h

I am off to Acapulco for two weeks. I HATE tutorials, but know that RM has much more to offer than I use. vacation project during hours of insomnia is to "teach an old dog new tricks". I have GETTING THE MOST OUT OF ROOTS MAGIC (the one with Family Origins on the spine:-) and I certainly will access the archives of this list. I am looking for recommendations for learning more "bells and whistles". Remember, this is an old dog. Regards, Mary McCanney Finley
17. Re: [RMagic] Database offer thru RootsMagic [1]
I think I can answer some of the questions about World Vital Records. In the beginning they got the databases from the states, but as the name implies they are world records. The initial subscription was for the databases available that they owned. Adding world records added new databases which they may or may not require an additional fee. The fee may be chargesd for those who have no need for US records. The Family Link title is the one for their family database online which you can send a GEDCOM to for

You don't have to print & scan to get it into your word processor. Create & save it as a .RTF file - when it shows up on your screen - Select All - Copy - & Paste it - into your WP new page or append at the end - insert where ever. It's very easy & simple to do.

You can create a description within the photo by using Irfanview. It will add space in the margin and you can then add text to that margin. This will carry along with the picture and show in the narrative.

Do you really consider $50. a year bloodsucking? Is the whole world suppose to provide free genealogical databases. I have not belong to WVR, but do belong to GenealogyBank and Ancestry. My genealogy involves history, these commercial databases provide this ole gal easy access to a large portion of our history. I suppose I could go out to dinner and a movie and spend $50., But I'll put my money on these great resources, even if they don't provide ALL the answers. Laura Scott, in the FL Panhandle (of Yanke
25. Re: [RMagic] RM tutorials [1]
Mary, May I suggest that you pick a general topic area, reports and charts, report lists, sources, place list, RMChart, or whatever topic you would like to learn more about, then read the details in GTMMOORM. Create a sandbox database to play in so you won't affect your family database, and go through each of the menus, each of the dialog boxes and the set-up buttons, and see what each does. Try running your "usual" reports, etc., with a variety of different settings to see what the results would look like.
