A&D gives you seven ways to specify which record(s)
from your current family history to include in a GEDCOM export file.
A&D then gives you three ways to export the GEDCOM data:
- Advanced A&D GEDCOM
This option exports the maximum amount of data. It outputs
all four of the major A&D record types: Individuals,
Relationships, Households, and Sources. Notes are included for
each of the four record types whenever present. Use this
option only when the destination is an advanced genealogical software
product (such as A&D) that supports both independent
household and independent source records. This option uses
GEDCOM level 5.5 constructs.
- Intermediate GEDCOM export.
This option exports a medium amount of data. It outputs three major
record types: Individuals, Relationships, and Sources. Notes
are included in each of the three record types. A&D
Household records are not exported. Use this option when
the destination is a genealogical software product that supports
independent source records (such as PAF 3.0), but not independent
household records. This option conforms to the GEDCOM 4.0
- Elementary GEDCOM export.
This option exports a minimum amount of data. It outputs only
two A&D record types: Individuals and
Relationships. Notes are included for both of the two record
typeseven though very elementary systems (such as PAF 2.31)
cannot handle relationship notes. Source data are converted
into text notes. Alias and Household records are not exported.
Use this option when the destination in a basic, mass-market
genealogical product. This option conforms to GEDCOM 4.0.
A&D exports the international character set (known as
Code Page 432, Character Set 2; PC-8; or IBMPC) recogized by nearly all
modern monitors and printers; however, some other genealogical products
may be unable to recognize non-English characters.
