Family Edge Plus Gedcom

Family Edge Plus Gedcom

I have all my genealogy on an old DOS based database called Family Edge Plus. This was written by Carl J. York and my program is probably about 15 years old by now. I want to convert my files over to a newer piece of software and then post my genealogy on the Internet. To do that I need to convert FE+ to Gedcom. I understand that Carl York once wrote a GEDCOM conversion utility for FE+. Does anyone know where I can get a copy of that utility. I have tried contacting Carl York but can't seem to locate him. Thanks,

Roger Anderson

I have the tools that you need. Contact me directly and I will assist you. I am disappointed that the Family Edge Plus tool did not continue because it was an excellent resource for me.

Hi,
Finally there seems to be a solution to my BIG worry. I used Family Edge Plus for quite a long time, but for personal reasons I had to put all my geneology studies on hold, and now that I finnaly have the time again I find that the program doesn't work too well on a Windows 2000 platform. Since Norwegian is my native language I use the "funny letters" æ, ø, å and they seems not to "exist" any more, and I have been afraid that all my data had to bee registered from scrach in another program. I hope that your answer to Roger Anderson means that you have a tool to convert all data I have registered over to a version of the program and that I can continue using Family Edge?
Looking foreward to hearing from you
Regards
Arnt-Yngve Arntsen

Hi L. Ricketts - I have the same problem, a lot of data on the Family Edge DOS software version I'd like to convert to a Windows-based application. Could I have your e-mail address to contact you directly? I saw your previous post but wasn't sure exactly how to contact you directly. Thanks.
