If you are not sure what a GEDCOM is...or if you find the thought of a GEDCOM to be intimidating...then watch this clear and easy-to-understand video workshop about GEDCOM files.
This helpful information comes from Treasure Maps Genealogy by Robert Ragan. The three-part "Mini-Workshop" can help you overcome the TWO BIGGEST MISTAKES that modern genealogy researchers make: 1) not using genealogy software to organize their data, and 2) not taking the time to understand GEDCOM files.
The titles of the three videos in the workshop are: Part ONE: Why GEDCOM files are a genealogy researcher's best friend. Part TWO: Genealogy software does all the work for you. Part THREE: You CAN do it!
