Family Files

Family Files

Root Seekers Genealogical Society here presents GEDCOM and other family files from the computers of members of the society. GEDCOM is an acronym for GEnealogical Data COMmunication which was developed by the Mormon Church to exchange genealogical data between different programs and computers.

IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ
GEDCOM files are designed to transfer data between genealogical programs. And as such when one is opened it will want to be added to your family file. They are not designed to be opened and read as a text file even though this may be done. Therefore, before you open a GEDCOM file, you should create a new empty family file. In most cases when you open a GEDCOM file, your program will ask if you want to add the file to your family file. Even if you are going to add the file to your personal family tree, you should first look at it in a newly created file. Don’t take chances by adding the data to your file by mistake. It will not ruin your personal file but it is a pain in the neck to remove all those added people you do not want.
