Should I be cleaning up my database? I have been very "creative" in my data entry and I may live to regret it!Does anyone know if the following will transfer to TMG without a problem?:
I have quite a few maiden names that are jnknown and that is the way I entered them -- "Jane Unknown". Same is true with spouses of females when the given name is unknown -- Unknown Jones". Will these transfer and will I be able to continue doing this?
I have many individuals with no dates or places of birth or death.I entered sort dates. How will these transfer?
I entered names of cemeteries in the Place Modifier field.What kind of mess will that create?
I have many free notes as sources.Will they transfer and if so where?
I suppose I should wait until I receive the program to worry about these things but I always like to get a head start with my worrying!
I have been using this program since it was Roots II and am not looking forward to coping with another program with a steep learning curve.However, I don't seem to have a choice.I have Family Tree Maker and thanks but no thanks!Hopefully with the help of the kind folks on TMG-L and those who have been our "lifelines" on the UFT message board (and are also switching to TMG) maybe I will be able to muddle through.If only we could take Melissa with us!
