What is a GEDCOM File?
A GEDCOM file is a simple text file created by genealogy programs for sharing
your genealogy with other genealogy software programs. By using one of
the popular family history programs like PAF, MyTrees.com,
Brothers Keeper, Family Tree Maker, Ancestry, ROOTS IV, and others,
you can enter your family information into your home computer.
Once you have completed the entry of the data, you can now export a GEDCOM
file from your family history program and place it on your hard disk or a
floppy disk. Please refer to the index of your user's manual for your
specific genealogy program under the subject "exporting" or "GEDCOM" to make
sure you understand how to export a GEDCOM file. The GEDCOM file that you
create of your own family history information should have the ".ged" file
extension appended to the file name by your genealogy program. If some other
file extension is there, then you have not created a GEDCOM file, and you
will need to refer back to your user's manual. If you are exporting a GEDCOM
file from Family Tree Maker, be sure to set the Destination format as PAF.
Once you have created a GEDCOM file of your own family history with the ".ged"
file extension, you are ready to submit your GEDCOM file to MyTrees.com
and receive one free month in the research library (a one-time
offer). We do require at least a four generation pedigree chart to
recieve your free month. This size of file is required to
insure your success while making use of the automated searching (Every Name) feature
of the Library. If you are using the NETSCAPE browser or better, you can upload your GEDCOM
file to MyTrees.com by clicking Submit then Your Family Tree.
You may send us your GEDCOM file as an E-Mail attachment.
Please send it to the Email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
If this is not successful, you may snail mail your GEDCOM file on a
disk to: MyTrees.com, P.O. Box 1882, Orem, UT 84059.
Note: The word "GEDCOM" is an acronym that stands for GEnealogical Data COMmunication and
represents a genealogical standard file format for exchanging genealogical
data among different genealogical computer programs.
