    Default gedcom files

    I have created four gedcom files with the "MyHeritage Family Tree Builder"
    I wish to send them via email.
    Can they be just sent as an attachment ?

    Should be no problem with that.

    GEDCOM files are text files, formatted in a particular way. No issues emailing them - I frequently exchange them with others investigating the families.

    Not connected to the DAY and WALKER lines are you?.

    Hope that "bad MP" from Southland is not related to my BH side, rofl.

    lurking.

    Ps. most family history sites will accept gedcom files. If my contacts want a list of names, then it's printed in rich text format.

    lurks.

    I'm a Day. My line originally from Cambridgeshire in England traces back to the early 1500s.

    BH's came out from Sixpenny, Handley, Dorset, England. Her G-Grandfather John and Grandfather Hector were bricklayers and their notable one is the Sgt Dan, Creamoata chimney stack in Gore. (not the trout one,lol)

    lurking.

    ps. quite a story about BH and my connections and must write a short story about it some day.

    lurks.
