rootstrust

GedSite has excellent support for rootstrust GEDCOM files and supports rootstrust extensions including sentence templates, witnesses and roles.

Sentence templates are only supported if you are using rootstrust v1.0 Build 393 (or greater) and you export with "Target System" set to "GedSite".

Exporting from rootstrust

When exporting a GEDCOM from rootstrust for use with GedSite:

  1. If you are using rootstrust v1.0 Build 393 (or greater), set the "Target System" to "GedSite" on the "General" tab of the GEDCOM Export Options dialog window.

    If you are using rootstrust v1.0 Build 392 (or prior), set the "Target System" to "rootstrust" on the "General" tab of the GEDCOM Export Options dialog window.

  2. On the "General" tab of the GEDCOM Export Options dialog window, uncheck "Exclude information about living Persons". GedSite will let you exclude information about living people and provides useful options for how you handle them.
  3. On the "Custom" tab of the GEDCOM Export Options dialog window, uncheck "Export Living flag". Rootstrust exports the Living flag as an event and it's not particularly useful in GedSite.
