Transfering data in custom blocks with the migration tool

My concrete5 5.6 site contains custom blocks. I understand that I need to rebuild the blocks and associated templates under 5.8. Does anyone know if the migration tool will move the content for the custom blocks? I.e I will setup a new 5.8 site and rebuild all the custom blocks/templates prior to attempting to migrate the content. Assuming that I keep the block names the same, will I be able to move the content for the custom blocks?

If not, has anyone found a way around this problem?

Thank you.

Yes. If you install the custom blocks in the new site you're moving content into, and they have the same database field names the content should go through without any problems.
