GEDCOM, which stands for GEnealogical Data COMmunication, is a file format for transferring family tree information.
The GEDCOM standard has been almost-universally adopted by major genealogy websites and software tools. This is good for everyone. It means that you aren't locked-in to one tool. You can move and copy your information. It helps ensure that the work you put into your family tree research won't ever be lost.
Uploading involves no obligation. You can even do it as a guest without becoming a full member. You'll be presented with a neat "GEDMatches" report that shows you which family members might already exist on WikiTree. Try it!
Our GEDCOM import process is different then what you might have experienced on other sites. For a great step-by-step guide to the import process, complete with screenshots, see this post by blogger Randy Seaver.
