Would some kind person help me with importing my gedcom file..........I know how to do it.......I've done this a million time elsewhere........but I keep getting a message from "genes" telling me that a name in my gedcom doesn't match the "owner" and it does...........I've checked it and checked it over and over.... Then I've also gotten messages that there is a problem with the "header/trailer"........I don't know what that's all about.....but I've written to "genes" and really don't expect help back for a while....... Any ideas anyone?...........I've ERASED the tree that I spent manually building. Barbara L.
