Genes Reunited didn't like my GEDCOM when I uploaded it. My great grandmother married her uncle (I wish I knew the story). I temporarily removed that relationship before re-exporting/importing and it worked. So if you have any peculiar relationships in your file that may be it.

No!  Really????

This isn't my tree, I did it for a contact, but the only 'slightly' dubious thing in it is that one of his ancestors had most of his children with his sister-in-law after his wife died.  He didn't marry her, as that would have been against the law.

But I scarcely think Genes can be being judgemental about that  ;) ;) ;)

Are there any clues around line 7320 ?


The status bar at the bottom should show you the line number you are on. You might have to turn the bar on using the View menu.
Looking at ALSTON in south Ribble area, ALSTEAD and DONBAVAND/DUNBABIN etc. everywhere, HOWCROFT and MARSH in Bolton and Westhoughton, PICKERING in the Whitehaven area.

Thank you for the further advice, I really appreciate your interest.

The person on Genes who I am corresponding with, and for whom I've created an Ancestry tree, is not comfortable with digital issues (it's become apparent). 

Although I've now sent him an Ancestry invitation and a web link to the tree (new facility from Ancestry, a one-use weblink) on two occasions, he's been unable to access the tree.

He says he is waiting for a visit from his more technically capable daughter and son-in-law, which may be delayed given current circs.

So I'm rather unwilling to take the time to explore other avenues of exporting the tree to Genes Reunited in case he's not able to access it there either......

It's been made apparent to me exactly how handicapped people are who've not had the opportunity of developing computer skills (perhaps at work), so as to be confident of what they're doing.
