Thread: oltime data

    Default oltime data

    I have CDs with Family History data sent to me from Europe., going back to 1600. Apparently they open with an old version of Acrobat 3. How can I access these old forms?

    Odd. Old pdf files should open with new versions of Acrobat. Unless ofcourse, the files are not actually pdf or ps files.
    Alot of genealogy data is stored in the GEDCOM format. Sometimes even in CSV foms.

    CSV files, are comma separated variable files, which can be opened in wordpad. Though the data will be difficult for you to make heads-or-tails of in such a layout.

    View the files complete name, and post back the file extension's three letters. That would definitely help.
