Hello:
I have done exactly what you are attempting

1. Export your Tbird address book as a "CSV" file.
2. In Evolution, import address book as "CSV" file.
3. You must go thru and identify each data field as to what you want that info imported as.
4. Since Tbird exports the header names, this is not too difficult.
5. In Evolution after you have identified all the fields, tell Evolution to start with Line 2, that way you are not importing the header names into the contact list.

It took me a couple of times to get it all the way I wanted, but worked out. The good thing is if you don't like the way it looks or something does not show up in the proper field, you can just delete all and start over again with the original CSV file. I did it 2-3 times with about 350 contacts in about 45 minutes.

Regards,
Randy
