iFamily for Leopard does a nice job of merging genealogy data from one database into another, but there are many steps and some pitfalls to avoid. This video walks you through the individual steps of the three stages:
- clean up
There are potential gotchas if the prep and clean up are skipped as well as one other thing I didn’t go into in the video.
Take special care to check the source citations of the migrated data. The copy person feature copied sources that were cited for the copied people; However, it didn’t cite the sources the way I expected. For example, one person I was copying had a residence citation of a 1900 US census document. A quick check after copying showed that the source and residence event made the trip. Unfortunately, the residence event was not cited with the census source in the target database! This bears repeating: check the citations on the merged people in the target database.
With that caveat offered, I present this video from the MacGenealogist Archives.
