Export Gedcom File (TPT) TribalPages Tree


TribalPages offers both free and subscription website Family Trees but with poor GEDCOM support. The most significant omission is multiple instance facts, so without this plugin only the first of each Census, Occupation, and Residence fact is imported per Individual. All linked/shared Note records remain unsupported. See the Migration Guide below. Visit TribalPages for product details.

All Multimedia are excluded by default because TribalPages 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 Change rich text into HTML 5 format so most text formatting is retained.

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

Migration Guide

After running the FH Plugin, login to TribalPages.com, use Edit > Dashboard > Upload GEDCOM, click the Upload button and Open the Project…TPT UTF8.ged file in the FH Plugin Export folder, then wait for the file to load.

Click the Import Names button, wait for an Email, then click the Done button, and use the View or People options, etc.

(TPT+) Full Data Export Details

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

Individual & Family Records (INDI, FAM)

★ Associated Person (ASSO)
Each ASSOciated Person is converted to a custom Event using the EVEN tag with a Fact local Note with an Associate: and Relationship: label.

★ Facts (Events/Attributes)
All multiple instance standard facts except the first, and all unsupported standard facts, are converted to a custom Event using the EVEN tag, where the name is based on the standard fact name suffixed by an instance number where necessary.
Multiple instances of custom facts and NAME fields are not handled.
The number of such facts and other custom facts that are successfully imported is governed by the level of subscription. A FREE account allows 2 custom facts, a STANDARD account 10, and PREMIUM or DELUXE accounts 24, although the imported GEDCOM seems to exceed those limits somewhat.

★ Fact Age (AGE)
See Other Options tab Fact Person Age 2 AGE: & Fact Husband Age 2 HUSB: & Fact Wife Age 2 WIFE:
Each AGE field is moved to the Fact local Note with an Individual’s Age: or Male/Lady Partner Age: label.

★ Address Fields (ADDR, ADR1, ADR2, ADR3, CITY, STAE, POST, CTRY)
See Extra Options tab Fact Address 2 ADDR:
All Address fields are appended to the Fact local Place field following the word at.

★ Fact Cause (CAUS)
The Cause field is moved to a Fact local Note with a Fact Cause: label, except for Death Events.

★ Fact Phone Number (PHON)
See Extra Options tab Fact Phone 2 PHON:
Any Fact Phone Number is converted to a Fact local Note with a Phone Number: label.

★ Source Note (SOUR)
Any Source Note is converted to a synthesised Source Record where the TITLe starts with Ω Source Note: and followed by the original Source Note text.

Source Records (SOUR)

★ Source Record (ABBR, _TYPE)
Each Source Record Short Title (ABBR) is converted to a full TITLe, unless that already exists, whereupon it is converted to a Record local Note with a Short Title: label.
See Extra Options tab Source Type 1 _TYPE:
Each Source Type (_TYPE) field is converted to a Record local Note with a Source Type: label.

Custom Id, Date Field (REFN, DATE)

★ Custom Id (REFN)
Every Custom Id is moved to the record Note with a Custom Id: label.

★ Date Field (DATE)
See Extra Options tab Date Field %d DATE:
Each Date field Period is converted to an equivalent Range, so FROM & TO become BET & AND, FROM becomes AFT, and TO becomes BEF.
The INT on each Interpreted Date Phrase is removed to allow the date to be recognised.

(TPT-) Brief Data Export Details

All the (Std-) Brief Data Standard GEDCOM Release 5.5 rules apply together with the (TPT+) Full Data Export Details defined above.
