Import Lists

You can copy various lists that you have built in other Family Files.  These include lists for locations, surnames, event names, temple names, source types, marriage and child status, and media locations.

When you are entering information into one of these lists, if the entry is already in the list, the automatic type-ahead feature of Legacy fills in the remainder of the word(s) for you.  Pre-loading a list with the entries you commonly use can greatly increase the speed of adding new information.

To import the lists from other Family Files:
To select a Family File to import Lists from:

3. Click Browse and then select a family file to import from.
4. Click on the checkboxes for the lists you want to copy.
5. Click Import Lists.
