Transferring my Legacy Family Tree to Android
#1
I have just installed the families app on a new Android Samsung tablet (having lost it when my Nexus went kaput).  I do not seem to be able to transfer my own Legacy family tree across to the tablet.  I transferred the sample file okay, but when I try to transfer any of my own files across it keeps coming up with an error message.  I see that the file has to be converted to a SQLite file, but I don't know how to do this from my Legacy Family tree.  Do I use the back up option, create a gedcom file - ?  I need very clear instructions please.  Many thanks.

Thank you Malcolm, I think I must be a bit dense.  I had read that, but it does not tell me HOW to convert my legacy file to a SQLite file, it just says I have to do it, before transferring.  My difficulty is that I don't know how to do this - how to convert it to a SQLite file.  It doesn't seem to give me that as an option that I can find when I'm saving or backing up.  I'm using Windows 10, Legacy 8.  I have tried Legacy Help online but SQLite file doesn't feature.  It is probably something quite simple....
