I have come back to Genes Reunited after some time. What is 'GEDCOM'. cant see it explained anywhere.

GEnealogical Data COMmunication.

If you put GEDCOM into Google it will tell you all the info.

It's a file type that can be used to export or import a genealogy file from one family tree programe to another. That's if you can get it to work on Genes!

Hover over Family tree near the top to see link to use Gedcoms.
