Export Gedcom File ~ (FTD) Family Tree DNA

Introduction

The Family Tree DNA website allows GEDCOM files to be uploaded as described in the Import Details below. Visit https://www.familytreedna.com/ for details.

The Character Set Encoding options for ANSI & UTF-8 and all Unicode characters are supported.

By default all Media are excluded because Family Tree DNA does not upload them.

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

(FTD+) Full Data Export Details

All the (Std+) Full Data Standard GEDCOM 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.
