After two days of attempting to import my very large file from Legacy, I am here to ask for help. When I exported a smaller Gedcom (a few hundred people) and imported it as a gedcom it worked fine. But the larger files seem to fail, no matter what I do. I've tried just about everything I can think of. When I do the Import from Legacy, I follow the wizard, it starts the import. Then I get in the top right of the screen "gbSource() DLL Syntax error" which seems to flicker so it might be happening over and over. This at 18% on the top line and 1% on the bottom line where it says "Importing people and names". I'm going to ignore that and going to wait it out this time since I have no other options. But I fear that in the end I'm going to have some sort of error in the file? I guess I'll see in a couple hours....Maybe its nothing?
When I import a larger sized gedcom it gives a variety of weird errors and doesnt import anything at all. (at least it does this almost right away, rather than a 2 hr wait) Any suggestions? It is really painful to remake the GEDCOM from Legacy, as it takes 2 hrs. I've tried a Gedcom 5.5.1 (which is what worked on the smaller file) and also a Legacy Gedcom.
