What is Gedcom?Close
GEDCOM stands for GEnealogical Data COMmunication. It is a standard for the specification of exchanging genealogical data between different genealogy software.
It is used to store information about individuals and families regarding their life history events. This data can be interpreted into a graphical family tree diagram where you can add a record that you find to your family tree or amend an existing one.
You can find out more about GEDCOM by reading this article.
