Genealogy software does
all the work for you…
You will discover how to import (look at) and export (save your own GEDCOM files) and how easy it is to do.
Hopefully, you already have a favorite genealogy software program that you are using. If not, there is a link below to a powerful free program (that happens to be my personal favorite) that you can get.
Note: In part two of the GEDCOM mini-workshop, you will see how to import and export GEDCOM files with the free PAF genealogy software program.
In part three, you will see how to do the same thing with the Family Tree Maker genealogy software program.
Don’t let these terms confuse or scare you off. Here’s all that this means…
You CAN do it…
Here, you will see how to work with GEDCOM files in a different genealogy software program, Family Tree Maker.
You will also see a search on one of the many sites on the Internet where you can get GEDCOM files with the surnames that you are researching.
I believe that the light bulbs will start going off in your mind, and you will finally understand what all of the fuss about GEDCOM files is all about.
