2. GEDCOM Import.

This method takes advantage of the GEDCOM Import Wizard. We have provided a special GEDCOM file in the directory Gedcom. It is named 'GenBaseAny.ged'. Simply import this GEDCOM giving the GenBase you create the name you prefer. For example, if you wanted to have a GenBase named Jones then import 'GenBaseAny.ged' and name the GenBase Jones. You have now created Jones which has no individuals in it. You can now go ahead and add your individuals.

See the Step by Step slideshow on how to do it.
