Technology Study Group – GEDCOM Update

This next technology program on GEDCOM Update is on February 9 at 7 pm on our Zoom channel!

Program Information
GEDCOM is a program designed by the Family History Library that transfers your genealogy data between family tree programs. Designed originally in 1984, it allows your genealogy data (names, dates, locations, and source info to be transferred to other family tree programs. The current used version 5.5 needed to be updated as many genealogists wanted more data such as bios, images, and notes to be included in the data. The FHL updated the GEDCOM program to include more data. Bob and others will discuss the current GEDCOM program and its benefits and the latest 7.0 version.
