Export Gedcom File ~ (GST) GedSite

Introduction

GedSite by John Cardinal offers one of the most complete GEDCOM implementations. See Import Details below. Visit http://www.gedsite.com/ for details, and also companion product https://www.gedcompublisher.com/.

It supports Witnessed/Shared Events and Record Flags similar to fh.

The Character Set Encoding options primarily for UTF-8 but also UTF-16 & ANSI and all Unicode characters are supported.

Most Media conversion modes are allowed, but the default mode is (FILE~ABS) Multimedia via Absolute Link Records to allow the Media folder structure and all Face/Detail frame details to migrate with the GEDCOM, so the files are NOT copied to the Export Folder.

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

All fh standard and custom tags are retained except as defined below.

★ Source Tag (SOUR)

The SOURce tag value is changed to FAMILY HISTORIAN.

★ Character Tag (CHAR)

The CHARacter encoding tag value is set to UNICODE for UTF16 mode, UTF-8 for UTF8 mode, and ANSI otherwise.

Fact Definition Records (_FACT)

See Extra Options tab Export Fact Definitions option.

All current Fact Type definitions for Sentence Templates are exported in custom records to allow GedSite to automatically mimic fh narrative sentences, but some advanced {%Data Reference%} and {=Function()} codes may be ignored.
