Perhaps I'm not understanding your advice. When I open the FTM and right click on the person's name there is no "Copy Individual and all descendants" choice available. There are just choices like "Cut", "Copy", etc. and they don't do the job. Note that Version 7 came out about 2001.It is not FTM 2007 (if there is such a version). I know FTM 2012 will do it.
