Another person who can't import from Family Tree Maker

Recommended Posts

I am another potential user who can't import my file from Family Tree Maker. I exported as a 2008-2009 backup format and then tried to import. Got the same DLL error others have mentioned and then the program hangs up after importing 18 people. I was thinking of purchasing the program since it was recommended by my Genealogy instructor and because I used it a number of years ago and liked it, but I have done an awful lot of work on my database and don't want to have to start over or lose anything trying to transfer using a gedcom. Being able to import from FTM was one of the main reasons I wanted to try this program. If that isn't working it makes me wonder what other advertised features may not work. It sounds as if this issue has been known for a while. Do you have any ideas on how I can make this work? Thank you.

The Family Tree Maker import stopped working correctly in TMG v8.05 but the problem wasn't discovered until users reported it fairly recently.


The Family Tree Maker 2008/2009 import should work in TMG v9.00.
