I uploded my GEDCOM file (created via the LDS PAF application) to TribalPages. When it finally came on-line, the First Name had the PAF RIN number in it (prefixed with na, so there was na1, na2 etc). The First Name was in the Prefix field. I had to manually update all 137 names! Annoying, but its done now! I've uploaded my GEDCOME file to and it has found no 'smartmatches'. I'm worried that the GEDCOM file may have data in the wrong place again. Is there anyway of viewing the raw data in the GEDCOME file to make sure its in the correct fields? Does anyone have adive on producing the GEDCOM file in PAF, as there are a number of options (I think). Cheers! Jason.
