Beware importing GED COM files
- I recently tried to import a gedcom file and it
came in and replaced the entire contents of my
familytreemaker. I should have made a backup floppy more often but
my latest backup was for november so all I entered
from november til now was gone. Fortunately I have the
information on printouts on paper but all the work of
re-entering the data lies ahead. The backup floppy worked as
it should restoring all the files up to november.
From now on I will make a new backup every time I
enter data in the familytreemaker. I suggest all users
of software do the same.
