In simple terms GEDCOM is a method of formatting your family tree data into a text file which can be
easily read and converted by any genealogy software programme. The GEDCOM specification
was originally developed in 1985 and is owned and managed by the Family History
Department of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
There are lots of family tree making programmes to be found on the internet and many of these
are free downloads which will receive your GEDCOM files. The Latter Day Saints site give a free
family tree programme which is a good starting point to adding your own input to your family
history file. I like to use Family Tree Maker 2010 which can be purchased readily on the internet.
