Exporting Gedcoms (Surname Export)

+7 votes

I am wondering if there is a way I can get a surname export of a gedcom.

I am currently entering the census for a village in Italy from the 1800's. I would love to be able to take the information I am entering, then create a gedcom from it.

I could then take this gedcom over to Ancestry and import it and see if I can get any hits for the immigrants to the  US.

Barring surname selection, perhaps a location selection?

I was able to work with a friend and figure out how to change a watchlist into a GEDCOM. If anyone is interested let me know or where this script and instructions can be posted.

Having a GEDCOM of my watchlist will enable me to take the data from Wikitree and upload it to Ancestry (and with that link those records at Ancestry back to WIkitree).

Hi Lance,

I don't know of all the specifics with exporting a gedcom however you can find more about Exporting a GEDCOM here  I believe you can download from a certain ancestor you will need there Wikitree ID for example yours is Martin-15906

Hope this helps.

Thanks but not helpful. My question is about exporting a group of profiles to a gedcom based on location or surname
