Importing from The Times Family Tree

The bottom line is...you can't!
I e-mailed The Times asking if there was any upgrade, or other way forward. Their extremely disappointing answer was "No. Try Amazon".
Ever heard of a chocolate teapot?

The way that I finally did it was to open the GEN file in Word (as plain text), then pick out the text information. Very long=winded and time consuming.

Looking at the Amazon reviews, it looks like there is a Gedcom export option, so if you have the program installed somewhere you should be able to export it. If you have the original program it could be installed on a PC running in 32bit and the data exported.

How ever it may be better to do a "Genealogy Do-over" and review and enter all your data getting all your sources and media entered as you go.
