AFGS Presents the 25th Silver Anniversary Member Pedigree Book

GEDCOM file


AFGS Member pedigree book and GEDCOM files. A GEDCOM file is a file containing Genealogy information created by Genealogy Software. 
 
GEDCOM - According to the help file of PAF version 5 software: "GEDCOM is a computer format that permits one type of software program to read genealogical records created in another program. GEDCOM was created by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to make it possible for individuals with different brands of software and computers to share their information. You can recognize a GEDCOM file on your computer because its file name ends with ".ged.""
 
For the AFGS 25th Silver Anniversary Member Pedigree Book we would prefer the information to be submitted in a GED or GEDCOM format.
  
NOTE: It is not required that the information be in GED format, as Paper version of the 5 generation charts can be submitted. See submitting instructions for information.
  
Most Genealogy Software Programs have that ability to create GED files. For instructions on how to create a GED file with your software, select your Genealogy software help screen, then search for GED or GEDCOM. 
Mac  GEDCOM 5.5 was tested and worked fine.
