Make sure you save your family tree maker file as a backup and not as a gedcom. If you save the file as a gedcom only items you have selected will transfer. All you should have to do is to install FTM on your new computer then select import backup file and select the disk you stored the file on.
Please make sure you also check with FTM to make sure as every program is different and it is always good to double check.

Subject: [IlPiatt] GENEALOGY PROGRAM HELP
I am thinking about getting a new computer.....I am using Windows 98 right now and would switch to Windows XP.
Has anyone had problems transferring their FAMILYTREEMAKER program from one to the other?
I am currently using FTM Version 06.
One person I know did not have a problem at first, but later found that the names were transferred but not the notes written on this program.
Any advice, suggestions, tips, would be greatly appreciated in telling me how I can safely transfer my genealogy program with almost 10,000 names to my new computer.
Right now I am backing up on two disc.
