you can provide your json file in the settings->restore/recover menu .. make sure to pick the correct item from the drop down:

@jcalfee1 Can you tell me if the brain keys are compatible with bts2?

Most likely but check the code to be sure.  Normalized just means taking out extra spaces.  It is more about what you do with the keys after you hash the brain key.

Thank you very much! It turns out I din't have the correct extension. The file name has to end in .json

In the past i sued the site https://wallet.bitshares.org/#/accounts to store my bitshares. It looks like that webpage has been abandoned. The certificate expired but I can still log in. Unfortunately it doesn't connect to the network and I don't know how to get my coins out. I have my 12-word brain key my password and a string that looks like its a json file format that I labeled backup. Unfortunately, I don't seem to be able to use any of my information anywhere. My backup file doesn't work at https://bitshares.openledger.info/#/existing-account. Please keep in mind I set this up pre BitShares 2.0.

Can anyone please point me in the right direction?
Thanks a bunch.
Marc
