GEDCOM (which stands for GEnealogical Data COMmunication) is a standard file format for transferring family tree information. It's 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. Before any profiles are created you'll be presented with a neat "GEDMatches" report that shows you which family members might already exist on WikiTree.
