GSP Family Tree Maker .GFT file - unable to open

Hi

I created a family tree many years ago. this is saved as a .GFT file. I am unable to open this with the GSP Family Tree maker I have purchased to open this file. I have long since lost the disc with the orginal software on.

Does anybody know how I can convert this to an FTW file so I can open and edit with my new software??

Thanks in advance
Becki

This link may offer some help

GSP short for Global Software Products has been taken over by another UK firm Avenquest

You may need to content them for assistance.

I've just been given a GFT file to download to GSP Family Tree and can't open it either - did you have any luck with finding out how to convert it ?

Carol,

You might go to the person who sent you that GFT file, and see if they can create a GEDCOM (GED) file for you.

I am also looking for a way to open old .gft files, having lost the original 'times Family Tree' CD a few years ago. Any help would be great

I have FT Version 4. I might be able to help export a GED version for anyone with this problem.

Just picked up on this thread. Been searching for a way to open this. It was sent to a friend by someone who passed away not long after.

If anyone is prepared to open the file and do a Gedcom export, it would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Ian
