    Upgrading from versions earlier than 2.4.0

    1. If you are still running a version earlier than 2.4.0, you must first upgrade to 2.4.0 before going any higher


    For detailed documentation, goto [] ( “Documentation”)

    To import your first GEDCOM and create your first page(s):

    1. Find the Upload GEDCOM File page link under Rootspersona Options.
    2. Browse for a GEDCOM file on your local PC and select ‘Upload’.
    3. Select one or more persons to create pages for and select ‘Submit’

    Your WordPress site will now have one or more persona pages for the people you selected!

    Note: importing GEDCOM files from different programs can have unexpected consequences.
    Rootspersona uses the ids generated in the GEDCOM file, and different programs may assign the same ids to different people.
    It is recommended to manage your data in a single program (the ‘system of record’),
    and to use GEDCOM files generated by that program, only.
