Hi

(Update for Pete)

Conversion for "kokon" went ok, so for interest and future knowledge, what I did was ..........................

Had to go back to FTMv4 (!!!!!) to find a program capable of reading the version of .gft.
Exported to .ged (&.csv for luck)
Unfortunately the .ged file was pre v5.5 of GEDCOM and FTM2011 will not process it.
Used LEGACYv7.5 to import the said ged (pre-v5.5) and re-export as GEDCOMv5.5 .ged

My wife is hoping to dust down her family tree as she has had the DNA analysis done. I could do with some help to convert a .gft if Ray still has access to the software and operating system  for GSP.

Thanks , Clive

I should add, I have a program that I think can use the .ged output. Its just the .gft to ged bit I need.
Thanks , Clive

Good morning (to all)

Is it not nice to start the day (nay weekend) with some good news?

Clive, your files are on their way, hope that they are fine?

For the record, "Family Tree 4" [GSP circa 1993?] did the trick.
