I have been doing genealogy since 1997 and have a huge Family Tree with 5300 people in it. This tree contains a lot of distant cousins and dna matches. I also have several relatives that are related from multiple direct descendants. eg - (I am related to one distant cousin on both her Fathers side of the Family and her Mothers side)
Gedcom was generated from Ancestry.com
I am looking for advice on how to split this Gedcom file up, not just for compare, but for consistency checking, duplication checking, formatting and data architecture standards going forward for other tools.
Should I do my Grand Parents Surnames???
LeFevre - Justice - DeWitt - Haggard
Or Great Grandparents??
LeFevre - Robbins - Justice - Armstrong - DeWitt - Nichols - Haggard - Rozelle.
The tree is public and is located at
I would also like to know what software tools are recommended to edit and split GEDCOM files.
Any advice is welcome.
