Export Gedcom File (FTD) Family Tree DNA

Introduction

The Family Tree DNA website allows GEDCOM files to be uploaded as described in the Migration Guide below. Visit FamilyTreeDNA for details.

All Multimedia are excluded by default because Family Tree DNA does not upload them.

The Character Set Encoding defaults to UTF-8 with all Unicode characters supported.

The [[private]] Text Option defaults to Include private text but remove the [[ ]].

The Rich Text Formatting defaults to Remove rich text codes leaving just plain text.

See both the (FTD+) Full Data Export Details and (FTD-) Brief Data Export Details below.

Migration Guide

At step 4. In the Select a GEDCOM section, click Browse… and choose the FH Plugin Export folder and the Project…FTD UTF8.ged file.

(FTD+) Full Data Export Details

All the (Std+) Full Data Standard GEDCOM Release 5.5 rules apply except as defined below.

Individual Records (INDI)

★ Baptism & Christening Events (BAPM, CHR)
If an associated Birth (BIRT) event does not exist, then the first of these events is converted to a Birth (BIRT) event and its Date is reduced to just the year and made approximate. This is because for DNA purposes only Birth and Death events are significant.

★ Burial & Cremation Events (BURI, CREM)
If an associated Death (DEAT) event does not exist, then the first of these events is converted to a Death (DEAT) event and its Date is reduced to just the year and made approximate. This is because for DNA purposes only Birth and Death events are significant.

(FTD-) Brief Data Export Details

All the (Std-) Brief Data Standard GEDCOM Release 5.5 rules apply.
