What is a GEDCOM?
GEDCOM is an acronym for GEnealogical Data COMmunications. It is a file format developed by the Family History Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS). It provides a flexible and uniform format for exchanging computerized genealogical data, and allows individuals to share files with other researchers who may not use the same genealogy program (Legacy, Family Tree Maker, PAF, etc.) that they do.
Rootsweb does not allow the downloading of GEDCOMs from this site, although it provides space in "WorldConnect" to do so. There is a very good reason why the "AllChutes.ged" has not been uploaded to "WorldConnect": it is still incomplete. While all Gedcoms are to some degree an ongoing "work in progress", I do not wish to make the "AllChutes.ged" available to the public until I'm comfortable that most errors have been eliminated.
But I am aware that many Chutes are working with their own genealogical software and need the AllChutes.ged to avoid the need to duplicate prior work. This file will need to be e-mailed to you, with the warning that you are being sent a GEDCOM that is not complete and is not guaranteed to be accurate.
The GEDCOM file is rather large. Be advised that it may take a while downloading. If this might pose a problem, you can also send a blank diskette to me for a hard copy. Send me an e-mail and I'll let you know where to send the diskette, as I've returned to college (2005), and am not always sure where I'm going to be next.
