I'm not familiar with this source, but one source type that comes to mind is Grave Markers (online images). This documents on the website. You can include the various source cemetery in the item of Interest. Of note is that this source template uses a "Full" and an "Abbreviated" option for the Item of Interest. You could enter the data into the Item of Interest as

photograph, gravestone for Mary Doe (18xx-19xx), Rotterdam, Netherlands; photograph taken in Xyz Cemetery, 123 AnyStreet, plot 1234, etc.||photograph, gravestone for Mary Doe (18xx-19xx), Rotterdam, Netherlands

The portion before the douple pipes (or bars) will appear in the full citation, and the portion that appears after the pipes will appear in the Short Citation.

Does this help?

Any ideas?

I'm having problems figuring out how to source a Dutch cemetery project where volunteers donate headstone photos from different cemeteries throughout the Netherlands. There's one administrator. Website: [url=""][/url]

I'm wondering if I would have multiple instances of the Graftombe source differentiated by cemetery. That way, each cemetery could be the repository.

Please advice.

The source template I'm considering is: Cemetery Records, Compiled (online databases)

I look forward to your advice!

Thanks Bruce but I tried to restore into the RM window alongside my live file. The file I lost was a copy that I was using as a control whilst transferring data from another package. I still do not understand why I got the error message but at least I am back to where I was. I must have done something wrong that I succeeeded in counteracting when coming with a fresh mind the next day. Senior moment perhaps!

Bernard, what folder were you trying to restore the backup to? Bill is right. If you try to restore the backup into the program files folder (like c:\program files\rootsmagic), then Windows isn't going to let you do that.

Thank you to all who responded to my plea. A further attempt to restore today was successful but I can see no apparent reason for the continued error messages 24 hours ago!!

The RootsMagic error could be a bit more specific.
Windows error 19 is ERROR_WRITE_PROTECT: The media is write protected.
That error typically happens when you try to install or unzip to a CD-ROM of write-protected memory stick.

Bernard Kerr, where is the being restored to? If it is going to na area that Vista or Win7 considered protected, it will create a fuss. Make sure you are pointing to somewhere like Documents or My Documents on the C drive rather than under the c:/programs... installation folder.

Bernard - I don't know the answer but you should submit a ticket to support. Go to and click on "submit a ticket".

I have a need to restore one of my back up files but keep getting the error message:
ZipForge: Cannot create file. "FileName.rmgc" - Native error: 00019. File processing error, possibly disk full.
I have 133GB free on my C: drive. Can anyone help please?
