Re: Gedcom help

You are correct that many (most) products do not implement GEDCOM well.

That is further confused by the two standards GEDCOM 5.5 and GEDCOM 5.5.1 that differ somewhat.

Add to that the custom features that each product uses and it gets very complex.


Many products convert local Notes to shared Note records and sometimes add a blank first line.

That is why the FH Plugin ‘Clean Up Notes’ is so popular and recommended after importing a GEDCOM.
