Re: Transferring a GEDCOM file

A GEDCOM file is a text file that includes specific markings that identify information extracted from your genealogy database, whether FTM or a different genealogy software.

FTM to Herdis conversion

With the announced end of Family Tree Maker software, might I suggest that the Heredis staff consider providing instructions on-line for conversion from Family Tree Maker to Heredis? This is definitely a market opportunity for Heredis.

Re: Importing GEDCOM

I am making a few guesses from the snippets of GEDCOM you sent so hope the following will help. The 'current' format of GEDCOM, version 5.5, was released on 2 Jan 1996.

What I did Saturday was similar, using the following Michigan, USA marriage record (from Ancestry.com) as a key element to check for ...

Re: Lost data

Could you please identify what options / settings you used when creating the GEDCOM from TMG? Over the last three decades I have used and have current licenses to most of the current and past genealogy software. Perhaps Mike or I can help you with the settings for the GEDCOM export from TMG.

Re: Source citations turncated during import via GEDCOM

Mike, I thought I might add the content from the ged file for the longer of the two citations as well. I am not surprised the url link was not included as many genealogy software do not include the url information during imports. However, as you will note the full citation was included in the ged fi...

Re: Lost data

I loaded my GEDCOM that contained multiple census reference for individuals, but can only find one per person. Anybody else have that problem? Is there a solution? No. I have many people with multiple census events and all census and other events are present. What did you name your census events (i...
