GMP to GDAT Conversion Instructions
Conversion can be a most painful process and one of the reasons it was avoided in Genome Mate Pro for so long.
It is very likely that many will NOT get a 100% conversion and the recommendation is that the GMP database be retained for reference.
In GMP, go to the Relative Detail page for each profile person and in the bottom right corner, toggle the primary key on (bold) for each key to be included as a profile key.
Run GMP2GDAT conversion Steps 1-3 and STOP.
Run the Genealogical DNA Analysis Tool (GDAT) and confirm that the profiles converted successfully.
If not, add missing keys. There can only be one relative record associated with each profile. If there are multiple, then merge those into the one associated with the profile. (In profiles, right click on the profile to go to the profile's relative record.)
Any changes before GMP2GDAT step 3 completes runs the risk getting a 'foreign key constraint' error and having to start over.
Run GMP2GDAT conversion steps 4-9.
Genealogical DNA Analysis Tool (GDAT) was developed by Beckins LLC as a standalone application (app) on the user's computer.
Data is imported into GDAT by you via either .csv files or by copy/paste. The GDAT database resides locally on your computer. You control completely what data is loaded into the GDAT database and how it is used.
