Please note that I am aware that all the pictures are not showing up. I am in the process of working on the problem and will fix it as soon as possible.

Please read BEFORE you look at my online file

I used The Master Genealogist, version 8 as my primary genealogy software for many years. As of September 30, 2014, it is no longer available at or anywhere else. The 2014 current version is 9.04 but if you haven't already purchased it, you will not be able to.

After that I have used Family Tree Maker. That is now questionable because decided to stop supporting Family Tree Maker. There is a new Family Tree Maker by Software MacKiev. It is available at his online site: I have tried other software such as RootsMagic 7 and Family Historian6. I'm not yet sure of which to decide to use on a regular basis. A GEDCOM file will import into either of these programs.

Right Click here to download a copy of my current GEDCOM file in a Zipped file of my that is at least 2,842 pages when I last downloaded it. Right click to bring up a menu and then Save Target as ... to your computer. the zipped file is 3.13 MB. The gedcom file is 31, 687 KB which is over 31 MB. After the zipped file has been downloaded to your computer, double-click the zipped file to open it and see the full gedcom file. Save that file separately into a folder where you can find it later, so that you can import it into your genealogy software program. January 10, 2017 is latest gedcom currently uploaded to my website. I hope that this works as a way for someone to download the GEDCOM from here as a GEDCOM file.

You may be able to download an old copy of my GEDCOM online file except at the RootsWeb WorldConnect site. This file doesn't contain details about people who are still living. Let me know you want me to send you a copy of a GEDCOM file exported from my primary file on a CD-rom or DVD-R Disk. If so, you would have to send me a DVD-R and include a Self-Addressed Stamped CD Mailing Envelope. However, I can't promise that the copy will be successful. If you would still like for me to try to make a copy for you, please read the note below. Click here to let me know that you are interested in receiving a copy of my GEDCOM and tell me a little about yourself along with contact information and why you want the CD. If you do mail me a self addressed CD envelope, make sure that it has the proper postage on that envelope. Thanks.

I cannot export directly into a Family Tree Maker or other formats without problems. To export from The Master Genealogist into Gedcom will not import all information appropriately because GEDCOM compiles all the notes for an individual into one note without the corresponding dates and place information for each note. Let me know if you also use TMG and if you want me to send the project folder instead of a gedcom.

I am very sorry for any inconvenience that these things causes anyone.

My file is a compilation of the work of many people and I have tried to post the source for each bit of information. Please forgive me if there are any mistakes or for missing information. let me know and I will try to correct these errors.

I will not be responsible for damages to the DVDs in the copy process or in the mailing process.
