Midgley Gedcom Page.
the last few years many contributors to the Midgley Web
Pages have developed a variety of methods to
store their family trees [pedigrees].
One of the more concise methods has been to use family tree software e.g. 'Family Tree Maker', Ancestry.com, or the freeware 'Personal Ancestral File' [PAF].
I find the latter to be intuitive and very adequate, exporting the data in the form of a 'GEDCOM' is a few clicks of the mouse button. A Ged or Gedcom file allows others to import and share the data on their own Gedcom compliant family tree software. For this reason I have started to collect these files together which can be downloaded from this page.
If you have any Gedcom files of your own to share please email them to the contact address at the bottom of this page so that they may be included.
|To download the
free Personal Ancestral File [PAF] go to Family Search
fill out your
details then click on the 'Order/Download Products' tab and
then 'Software Downloads [free]', choose to download PAF
5.0 or later version.
Personally, I have endeavoured
to omit any living individuals from my submissions although
some people work on the 'hundred year rule'. Thus before exporting
I would suggest you copy your file and modify it if you intend
to share it with others through this site [again PAF makes this
easy]. I look forward to some of your submissions.
