I know that I could have imported the Legacy Family tree 7 file directly into RootsMagic 4, but I figured that the GEDCOM would be the "worst case," and typical of what a user that receives a GEDCOM file would do.
I went ahead and created duplicate Source Citations for a number of source types using the RootsMagic Source Templates. A screenshot of the RootsMagic source Template for the first item on my list (an online Vital Records Index) is shown below:
Here are some of the Source template citations created in RootsMagic 4 (same specific citations as created in FTM 2011):
Vital records index (Website, as book):
Rootsweb (original database created by State of California , Department of Health Services, Center for Health Statistics, Sacramento,CA, USA), California Death Index, 1940-1997 [online index database] (http://vitals.rootsweb.ancestry.com/ca/death/search.cgi : accessed 2009), Maybelle C. Wright entry, Death Date 31 March 1964, Death place San Diego (80), Birth date 17 May 1902, Mother's maiden name Ashdown.
Record Commissioners of Boston, A Report of the Record Commissioners of the City of Boston Containing Dorchester Births, Marriages and Deaths to the End of 1825 (Boston, Mass.: Rockwell & Churchill, City Printers, 1890).
Robert S. Wakefield (editor), Mayflower Families Through Five Generations: Volume 13: Family of William White (Boston, Mass.: General Society of Mayflower Descendants, 1997), page 6.
Elizabeth French Bartlett, ""Genealogical Research in England: Weeden," New England Historical and Genealogical Register (Boston, Mass.: New England Historic Genealogical Society), Volume 76 (Number 2 (April 1922)): [Page].
Family Bible Record template:
Family Bible Record of Rebecca "Spangler" Carringer of Boulder, Colorado and San Diego, California, unknown title (unknown location: unknown publisher, n.d.), owner (1988) Randall J. Seaver, ([address for private use], Chula Vista CA 91911).
The interested reader can compare those with the corresponding entries in Evidence! Explained and in Source Citations Created in Family Tree Maker 2011 - some examples. I see now that I neglected to do a similar post for Legacy Family Tree 7.
The only thing I saw that bothered me a bit was the Census source template that will require each unique census page to have it's own Master Source citation (because of the need to put the NARA Roll number in the Master Source field). I may leave those in the free-form style because I have so many of them.
I am very happy with the source citations created using the RootsMagic 4 source templates. It takes some time to do each one of them, but the master source creation process seems much easier than FTM2011 and Legacy Family Tree 7. Going forward, the two big issues for me are:
1) Does RootsMagic place the information in the Source Template fields into the correct GEDCOM fields?
2) Can I merge the existing 650 free-form source templates in the database into the RootsMagic EE-style Source Templates?
If RootsMagic 4 can do both of those tasks, then it will become my favorite program because it creates the least work for me. I will go ahead and make Source Template citations and merge the Free-form citations into the template citations.
The Seaver Source Citation Saga continues...
