Import old GED 5.0 file from family tree maker to new version

This is a quick hotfix for this. If you exported your old family tree maker file to a GED file version 5.0, you can't open it again in newer versions. But it's actually saved in 5.3, which is pretty similar to 5.5. Simply open the GED file in notepad, find the line which specifies the version (5.3), rename it to 5.5, save, and open it in family tree maker 2011 or whatever you are running ;)

PS... Scrapbook elements gets lost in the GED format..
