Tuesday's Tips provide brief how-to's to help you learn to use the Legacy Family Tree software with new tricks and techniques.
Importing Master Lists (Intermediate)
Did you know you can import Master Lists from one Legacy file to another? This will save you oodles of data entry time. You can import everything from Locations to Events to Sources and more.
Open the Legacy file that you want to import INTO and then open any Master List, for example, View > Master List > Source. Now click Options > Import Lists.
Chose the Family File you want to import FROM by using the Browse button. Select the Lists that you want to import. Click Import Lists and NOT Import Defaults.
Easy peasy! There is no reason for you to re-enter all of this information when it is readily available for you to import from file to file. You can even restrict which locations and sources are imported by tagging the pertinent ones in your source file first.
Legacy has many time saving features built in so that you can spend more time doing actual research.
