Renumbering Person ID in The Master Genealogist v8 Posted October 17, 2013 · Report reply I started with one main project in 1999 and added to it over the years. I have also received two 'Family Tree Maker' backup databases, one GEDCOM file, one 'The Family Edge' database exported/imported as GEDCOM and several printed reports that had to be keyed in. The databases require much cleanup before merging and I have kept them in standalone projects.Now, I have chosen to segregate several family branches from my main project into discreet projects after weighing the pros/cons of using data sets within the same project. Having the storage space to do so, I simply copied my main database to multiple project folders and began pruning away the data I do not want associated with that branch. How do I force a renumbering of the Person ID making the progenitor #1, wife #2, first child #3, etc.?
