Importing a GEDCOM file

  • Family Trees are stored in GEDCOM files. If you already have your tree in this structure, you can import it to the system using these steps.
  • Open the TREE TOOLS

    Go to the menu in the top and select
    TREES -> TREE TOOLS -> GEDCOM IMPORT

  • If you see a warning message that reads:
    Quote: The Image Galleries module is not installed or active.
    Additional images for Profiles can not be imported into the Profile's Image Gallery
    and your GEDCOM file does contain links to images that exist online somewhere that you want to bring into your system, you can install the IMAGE GALLERIES module from the marketplace using this method:
