Database fields

These are the standard fields as used by Legacy. A Legacy database consists of several separate data tables which are linked together by common fields. This version of TreeDraw Legacy Edition will read all Legacy databases from V3 to V8.

The following tables show the structure of the latest Legacy database (V8). Previous database versions may not have all these fields present or may have had additional fields.

Some field names have an apostrophe in front of them. These fields have been given more descriptive names in TreeDraw, for example "'LocationBirth" is the TreeDraw name for the Legacy field "IDLRBirth". You must include the apostrophe at the start of a field name if it is needed.
