An online GEDCOM viewer
« on: Tuesday 25 June 19 11:08 BST (UK) »
I was impressed with this.

Go to this web site,

http://www.drawmyfamilytree.co.uk/gedcom_viewer.php

and use the CHOOSE FILE button at the bottom.  Navigate to your GEDCOM file.  Then use VIEW.

Wait a few seconds while it loads.  Then scroll up and down.

Yes, very interesting.  Even I could use it.


Thank you.

An ahnentafel file does a better job. I think that most gen progs have them but it's easy to use & useful if you don't have one.
I notice it's also printable.

Thanks for that, Martin. 

This will be very handy for emailing relatives.

I think it is going to be very useful to people.  I think it is a new facility, and I have noticed a couple of bugs.  I contacted the developer:

"I've found a couple of bugs.  I am a retired software tester, so I know what I am talking about.  For example, if you have a note attached to a record, and that note has hard carriage returns, the lines are concatenated without inserting a space.  Also there are instances of the first line of notes being removed.  Finally, I have an unresolved oddity.  There is confusion between the two wives of a person.  I can't find an error in my data, but your report shows the second wife marrying the man when she is aged three.  It is looking at the wrong date."

If I get a reply, I will update this thread.

I was just going to complain about missing people, when I discovered that I was using a very old .ged file.

I have noticed the omission of my sister, who was a twin.  I have reported that, after checking the integrity of the GEDCOM file.  I like helping people change 99% perfect to 100%, so I always report bugs.  Sometimes I get thanked!

Looks great, but...

Ah, the usual problem. 2Mb maximum. I just don't have a gedcom that small.
