    I added my tree yesterday, I kept meaning to but kept forgetting. I think it added about 550.

    Is it possible to upload from any other format?

    I keep my stuff in Excel.

    The software used for reading the uploaded files works with .GED format but any other type of file will be very different.

    Legacy users (not sure whether it applies to a specific version or all of them) can import an Excel file then export it as a .GED format.

    Thanks, Glen

    I can probably use that to set up a file with the basic data in it: names, BMD dates and places.

    I have quite a lot, now!

    Something has gone wrong!

    I just went to see if I had any matches with my new update & my names aren't there!
    It says I have 511 names in the database but none of them are there.

    Was your tree exported from GR or Ancestry, or on your own tree program?

    Are you sure you are putting the surname in the right box Viv? I once put the surname in the the given name box and wondered why I couldn't find any

    Can someone remind me please?

    If I upload my gedcom with living rellies these won't be shown? or do I have to delete them all beforehand?

    Anyone born before 1899 without a death date will show up but anyone born after 1899 and without a death date won't show?

    If the person has a burial date then they will show?
