Nope.No backup, but I do have a gedcom from about a year ago that has less information than when I "doubled up".You are right.Maybe your plan of using the old gedcom will work and I can just do as you have suggested. I guess I learned the value of a back up with this. You would think I'd have been more cautious...... but hindsight is 20/20. :-) Thanks Lance. I'll try your idea.It sounds good (lots of work, but good).
