Hi WikiTreers,
 
Small announcement here: We're changing the name of our GEDCOM matching tool from GEDMatches to GEDCompare.
 
When we created it three years ago we didn't know about GEDMatch.com. Now that so many genetic genealogists are using WikiTree, and many of them are using GEDMatch.com for comparing DNA, it seems unnecessarily confusing to keep the name GEDMatches for our GEDCOM search and matching tool.
 
So, we've renamed our tool GEDCompare. A quick Google search reveals that there is also a GEDCOMpare out there, but it's a Dutch software utility so it shouldn't cause too much confusion. Hopefully.
 
Cheers,
 
Chris
