Exporting a GEDCOM for use on Gedmatch etc.

I would like to use my WikiTree ancestor data for a GEDCOM file to upload to GEDmatch,  and  DNApainter, and for some other uses.

However I cannot see any export option that generates an appropriate file on the page, https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:DownloadGedcom .

The only options it gives are "Limit for file size", "Limit for privacy" , and "No limits".

The "No limits" option is not suitable because GEDmatch requires you to only upload GEDCOM files that have had the details of living people anonymized -- which is not the case for the "No limits" option.

And the "Limit for privacy" option also is not suitable: after uploading, my "tree" only consists of myself and no links. Checking the file, I see that it is because both of my parents are still alive and Unlisted, and the "Limit for privacy" option means that Unlisted people are not given any Descendant links. So I have no parents .

Is there another way I can export the data so that living people are anonymized, but my relationship to my parents is included?

An option is to use open source software like Gramps to adjust your GedCom to it suits the needs for other website.
