Gedcom Import Not Working

+2 votes

I'm trying to upload a new Gedcom for use in the Connect-A-Thon, but it keeps giving me the error "

This site can’t be reached

The webpage at might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.

Is anyone else having this problem?

The posted link is working for me.

Let us know if you are still having this problem, Sarah.

edit: I just processed a GEDCOM that I uploaded to GEDCOMpare today. So as I previously indicated, it's working for me!

Seriously though, you should add a few tags to your question to get the attention of the tech team:

  • gedcom
  • gedcompare
  • connect-a-thon
  • sysops
Thanks. Still not working for me, going to try downloading it again and then uploading it to see if maybe I did something wrong previously. Sorry, didn't even think of the tags, still getting used to using them. Will do next time. Will let you know if it works or not after trying another upload.
Nope, still not working and I've tried on three different browsers. I'm not new to this as this would be my fifth gedcom I've imported if I can get it to work. Still tells me that the site can't be reached.
I made a new post with tags so hopefully someone will know what to do.

Thanks for your suggestions.
Where are you downloading your GEDCOM from and does it have .ged as the extension on the file name?
From and yes it does have the .ged

I've done it before 3x successfully so the only thing I can think of is because I now have over 5k people on my tree and it says when you have that many you have to break it down, but I don't know how to do that.
