Convert Note Records to Local Notes

Introduction

Sometimes the GEDCOM imported from other programs has Note fields saved in Note Records, even when they only have a solitary link, and could be Local Notes.

Details

Use the Clean Up Notes plugin to convert every Note Record with a solitary link to a Local Note.

Before running the Plugin it may be a wise precaution to use File > Backup/Restore > Small Backup (GedcomGEDCOM, an acronym for GEnealogical Data COMmunication, is a specification for exchanging genealogical data between different genealogy software. It is a file format that most genealogical programs and online trees recognise. File Only). Alternatively, after running the Plugin, if the changes are unsatisfactory, use Edit > Undo Plugin Updates before closing ƒh.
