Export of named List

Post by lastejas » 30 May 2017 16:12

I am trying to export a named list so that I can run the Export Gedcom plugin to upload to TNG. My main FH file has 10,000 people, about 2500 locations, 15,000 media items and 6000 source records.

The named list has only 742 people, however when I look at the exported gedcom, it has the correct 742 people, but also contains all the location, media, and source records. Not just the ones associsted with the 742 people.

Is there some option I am missing in the initial Gedcom export that removes unassociated information, otherwise it would appear that I have to upload all my media, etc to TNG. Which in this case for 742 I would need to upload in excess of 12Gb of media.

Checkout Knowledge Base > Exporting a Family Tree with/without Media.

I suspect you are not ticking the Unconnected Records option when using the Export> GEDCOM File command.
