GEDCOM stands for Genealogical Data Communication. It's the standard method for exporting and importing genealogical data from one program to another. Every genealogy program is a little different, since the data structure varies slightly from program to program. RootsFinder allows you to import a GEDCOM from any program, but only data will be imported; any media you've attached within the file won't be imported. We are working on a solution for this so stay tuned.

To export a GEDCOM from RootsFinder, refer to " Export a GEDCOM from RootsFinder"
