Someone that knows how to convert the AOL GEDCOM attachments from txt to
GEDCOM please submit to Cyndi for this page.
Sue and everybody:
I have AOL and I also have PAF. I don't understand WHY GEDCOM is being sent
in txt form. The easiest way for me to send GEDCOM is:
<<<< on this side of your screen (on AOL) is several buttons in the following
attach <<<<<<<<use this button and "attach" the GEDCOM file to a short note!
You really don't even have to put a note, but I do so the person getting it
will know what it is. That's all it is to it. I've done it quite a few times
and never had any trouble doing it this way.
If you want to send the GEDCOM to a list--NO NO.
I suggest you: Query the list subscribers and describe what you have to share.
Then let them e-mail DIRECTLY to the person with the GEDCOM to share and
request the GEDCOM. You can reply and just "attach" it from where you have
set it up on "A" drive, zip drive, or a handy "c" drive you can get to. (I
put it into "download")
Am I missing something complicated here?
