GEDCOM is an acronym for GEnealogical Data COMmunication, is a  specification for exchanging genealogical data between different  genealogical systems. It was developed by The Church of the Later Day Saints as an aid in their extensive genealogical research. A GEDCOM  file is plain text containing records for each  individual in the  family tree, and data linking these records together. Most (if not all) genealogy software supports  importing from and/or exporting to GEDCOM format. You will normally find the import/export facility under the file menu in most programmes

e.g.Your great-aunt may not use the same software that you use, you’ll need to share your family history in a file format that anyone can open. That format is GEDCOM.

1. When you send the data decide what sort of chart you would like, Descendant, Ancestor etc.

2. Tell me the name of the individual that you want to be the starting point for your chart, along with some detail information such as a reference no, place & date of birth to ensure that I have the right person.

3. Tell me how many generations you wish to include and select the information that you wish to include for each individual.
