Converting Roots3 files to GEDCOM

Converting Roots3 files to GEDCOM

Hi
I compiled much of my Family History using Roots3 more than a decade ago now and thought that I had lost it all when a computer crashed a few years ago. But, fortunately I have found the database again on an old floppy complete with around 3500 names.
I have decided to use PAF to redo the history but I am in need of advice on how to convert Roots3 files to GEDCOM so that I can import the old stuff without having to re-enter everything.
Having done a google search it would appear that I require a program called R2GED. Can anyone help me with information or with supply of this program.
Regards
Laurie Joyce

Scroll down the page to close to the bottom for the download area.

This site also gives you complete directions on using the software.

Good luck!

Hi
Thanks for the info but the file I need for conversion of my data to a GEDCOM file is R2GED. That doesn't seem to be available from that site.

Can anyone supply that file to me.

Cheers
Laurie

The software available from that site I posted will do exactly what you need. Convert a RootsIII file to GEDCOM.

I suggest you give it a try.

Good Luck.

You know what? I was wrong, the file I recommended converts a GEDCOM from Roots3 to a higher version of GEDCOM for importing to current softwares.

Sorry
