It will NOT:
1. Do sources. You can do this in Legacy file wide.
2. Do Relationships. You can do this in Legacy; many people will have
several relationships, spouse, parent, brother/sister, child, etc.
3. Do marriages.
4. Do divorces.
1. I would not Import this straight to your family file. Import it directly
into a file of its own, do the sources, and relationships. Work with it until you are happy with it.
2. Be as certain as you can about the dates and be consistent about them.
Entering a date such as "~1920-10-17" may not necessarily translate to "About October 17, 1920".
3. If you have several Sr.s, Jr.s, IIIs, etc. I think it best to enter them
4. Import your data into a family file all of its own, do any relationships,
sourcing, etc. until you are happy with it.
5. When you are happy with the family file, PLEASE MAKE A BACK UP OF YOUR
before doing the import. Remember, you still have some
relationships to make.
6. You might want to print out your new data first, so you can work on each
one, top down.
This is an Excel file. It takes an Excel file properly formatted, and makes
it easy for you to reformat will a little work. This "reformatting" allows
you to make a Gedcom containing your data, and you can import the Legacy
file into your main family file, or whatever.
PhpGedView is an alternative (free) way of publishing your tree on the web.
