Re: Need Guidance on Computer Program
- It was possible to do this w/older FTM versions so I can't imagine that it
isn't also possible with your version.
I would open my Tail Male Line Surname file, then import each of the other
lines into it, saving it under an entirely different file name.
Since I'm not familiar w/your newer version of FTM I would probably save
each of the 14 files as they are now but giving each duplicate file a new
name until you know whether the import invalidates or deletes the original
imported file or not.
For instance: your tail male line surname is Jones. Two other surname files
are Smith and Brown. I would duplicate each file, naming them for instance
Jones3, Smith1 and Brown1. I would then import Smith1 and Brown1 into Jones3.
If FTM didn't delete Smith1 and Brown1 after importing them into Jones3, I
would delete them. That would leave you w/your original files intact plus
one new file of all the surnames combined. Jones, Brown, Smith and Jones3
