Anyone managed to upload Gedcom files generated by "GEDitCOM" on the Macintosh? I have tried exporting without Header Record, Submission Record and Submitter Records, but still no joy. Does the date of birth in the Gedcom file have to be YEAR only like on this site? What about Place of birth, does it have to be EXACTLY the same including commas to seperate town, Any other tips appreciated.
