Thank you for your message - we will use your website as a reference. Yes, it was always our plan to learn PostgreSQL as fast as possible - but it never hurts to ask others how they accomplished a similar feat. It's also obvious this is not going to be a quick migration, so we'll get started in phases.
PS. I agree about the old legal message that was automatically appended to all our mail. Silly indeed!

The most important step is to get a thorough grip on PostgreSQL, and
understand what it can do for you. With a clear grasp of concepts such as
transactions and foreign key constraints, you'll probably find it far easier to
implement your business logic with a PostgreSQL database than dirty ol'
FoxPro. On the other hand, you're much more on your own wrt the interface.
On a far smaller scale than your project, I migrated my genealogy database
from a commercial FoxPro program to my own homegrown PostgreSQL/PHP
application. You can read about it here:
That is a rather silly thing to tell an email list.
