Exporting gedcom file

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

I have done what is suggested to enable me to send my gedcom file for printing. Clicked on EXPORT GEDCOM FILE.It has been 'pending' now for over an hour so I have come out of it.
Is this usual?

Yes, unfortunately!


They'll sort it for you - though probably not now until after New Year.

I exported a Gedcom(small tree) from GR to FTM last Friday (29th) the export itself appeared successful although I think I need to check the result as there appear to be some strange additions :-(
