Re: Lost Gedcom?

The generated file should be in /Users/"yourname"/iFamilyData and should be listed as "whatever-you-named-your-ifamily-file.GED

Hope this helps.

Re: Change the order of spouses for a person

Just add an approximate marriage date for example: abt 1914; aft 1915, bef 1920; they don't have to be exact. This should re-order the spouses accordingly.

Re: printing Reports

Switch to TextEdit instead of pages to print using the rtdf format or be sure to use the version of pages prior to the latest version which came with the upgrade to OS 10.9 Mavericks. At least TextEdit is free with the OS.

Re: How to insert a partner (boyfriend or girlfriend)

I don't believe you can change the event type but you can delete it and if necessary re-add it. If there is a marriage event listed in your great grand father's events then it can be deleted. Once this is done, select the "Family" tab and then click on "wife" or whatever appears above your great gra...

RE: Correcting, updating website

RE: Printable Index

It appears that the only way to print the index is to create a CSV file and import that into a spread sheet program or maybe even a program such as TextWrangler. You will find this by clicking on the "Index" label on the main screen of iFamily.

How do I Export iFamily Gedcom to another program?

When you generate a gedcom with iFamily the program lists the location of the file when the generation of the file is complete. I don't use MFT but I am assuming it is similar to other genealogy programs so there is probably a function for importing a gedcom into MFT.

You really only need one ftkSql file in Dropbox and the iFamily program file on each computer. Your photos can be treated the same way. If you and your wife have created separate trees then two separate database files seems appropriate.
