Its a shame that so many features can't be transferred from Legacy. I checked with Tech Support at FTMM and after some discussion, it appears that suffix data (Jr, Sr, I, II, III,etc) is not transferable. Also, photo data is lost in any transfer. In both cases you have to re-enter the data which is prohibitive when one has some 24,000 names in file. On another note, you can not register the FTMM with Ancestry,com for whatever reason, which was one feature I had hoped to utilize. I even uploaded the data to Ancestry.com in the hopes I might be able to download into FTMM - alas, the downloaded data did not contain the suffix data nor the photo references. I had hoped to transfer my PC Legacy data to my iMAC and utilize FTMM, but it appears that too much 'workaround' is going to be needed. I am really disappointed that this was not noted anywhere in the forum data nor was the sales or technical staff aware of these drawbacks. I will keep my purchased program and hope that somewhere down the road that this will get fixed. Hopes dashed.....
